Probing for Galaxy Evolution in the Distant Universe

Advances in technology and technique over the last few years have now made it possible to routinely identify galaxies to look-back
times when the Universe was only about a tenth of its present age and a hundredth of its present size. These high-redshift objects are vigorously star-forming and therefore the galaxy population at these early epochs should be undergoing rapid evolution. I will describe two very deep surveys that robustly probe for signs of this evolution within the high redshift galaxy population and I will discuss implications of these studies for our understanding of when and where the Universe formed its stars.
