The Anthropology 384 webpage contains a number of documents in .PDF format. PDF is Adobe Systems' Portable Document Format. It lets any user at any computer view a document the way it was intended--with the proper fonts, layout, and figures. However, there are some issues you might need to address if you're experiencing difficulties reading or printing these documents.

To view a PDF file you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. If your computer does not recognize PDF documents, you can download a PDF viewer FREE from Adobe Systems' web site.
