Anthropology Field course: Gibraltar

Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory of 2.6 square miles with 32,000 residents. Gibraltar's economy is based largely on tourism, online gambling, financial services and bunkering.

During the field course we explore human-macaque interactions from a diversity of perspectives. Students will gain first-hand experience in collecting and analysing field data relating to primate behaviour. Ethnographic approaches are used to explore the relationships between people and Barbary macaques in Gibraltar.
