Introducing the life and work of Alan Macfarlane and his collaborators.

He taught at the Department of Social Anthropology Cambridge University for thirty-four years and is now Emeritus Professor of Anthropological Science and a Life Fellow of King's College, Cambridge.

As an anthropologist and historian he has worked on England, Nepal, Japan and China.

He has focused on a comparative study of the origins and nature of the modern world.

In recent years he has become increasingly interested in the use of visual material in teaching and research. (See some of his uses of the internet.)

This site contains a wide variety of materials in order to test the potentials of the web.

The films and photographs have been made with the permission of the subjects and are shown here on a "not for profit" basis. We hope that if you download any you will use them for educational and research purposes only.


The film clips are in QuickTime format. If you do not have QuickTime, click here to download it free from the Apple website.
