Four late Pleistocene-early Holocene skulls from Tulum in Mexico show surprising diversity – Cranial remains from El Pit I show possible morphological affinities with European populations

Debate about the origins of the earliest humans in the Americas has relied on relatively little data, in part due to the rarity of early human remains in North America. Continue reading “Four late Pleistocene-early Holocene skulls from Tulum in Mexico show surprising diversity – Cranial remains from El Pit I show possible morphological affinities with European populations”

Bone knife from Morocco is oldest specialized tool associated with Aterian culture – Unique technological complex in North Africa around 90,000 years ago

A single bone artefact found in a Moroccan cave is the oldest well-dated specialized bone tool associated with the Aterian culture of the Middle Stone Age, according to a study by Abdeljalil Bouzouggar of the Institut National des Sciences de l’Archéologie et du Patrimoine in Morocco and colleagues.

Neanderthals and early modern humans show similar levels of cranial injuries, study finds

A team of University of Tübingen researchers has shown that Neanderthals sustained similar levels of head injuries to the earliest anatomically modern humans in Eurasia. This result contradicts previous views that Neanderthals were characterized by exceptionally high rates of trauma. This post is dedicated to this very interesting research. Continue reading “Neanderthals and early modern humans show similar levels of cranial injuries, study finds”

Homogeneity among Illyrian and Greek populations and shared ancestry, study finds

In this post we present the very interesting paper titled “Evidence for Long-Term Migration on the Balkan Peninsula Using Dental and Cranial Nonmetric Data:Early Interaction Between Corinth (Greece) and its Colony at Apollonia (Albania)“, by Britney Kyle McIlvaine et al. We also comment on the findings and their possible further importance. Continue reading “Homogeneity among Illyrian and Greek populations and shared ancestry, study finds”
