Between 1975 and 1986 the first-year students at Cambridge studying Archaeology and Anthropology attended an eight-lecture basic introductory course on Kinship and Marriage. Each lecture lasted 55 minutes and attempted to provide tools for the study of this most difficult field in anthropology. When I finished giving this lecture course, I decided to capture their essence in 10 x twenty-minute versions of the lectures. Using the crude video filming & editing techniques of the time, I made the following films in my barn at Lode, with the help of my graduate students, in particular Drs. Tristram Riley-Smith and Sofka Zinovieff. This is an un-edited archival version of those lectures, with the original readings, definitions and diagrams attached, as they were handed out.
