Climate played big role in Vikings' disappearance from Greenland

  • PDF
1000pa (May 31, 2011) — Greenland's early Viking settlers were subjected to rapidly changing climate. Temperatures plunged several degrees in a span of decades, according to research from Brown University. A reconstruction of 5,600 years of climate history from lakes near the Norse settlement in western Greenland also shows how climate affected the Dorset and Saqqaq cultures. Results appear in Proceedings of the National Academy of...

Last Neanderthals near the Arctic Circle?

  • PDF
1000pa (May 13, 2011) — Remains found near the Arctic Circle characteristic of Mousterian culture(1) have recently been dated at over 28,500 years old, which is more than 8,000 years after Neanderthals are thought to have disappeared. This unexpected discovery by an international multi-disciplinary team, including researchers from CNRS(2), challenges previous theories. Could Neanderthals have lived longer than thought? Or had Homo sapiens...

Neanderthals died out earlier than previously thought, new evidence suggests

  • PDF
1000pa (May 11, 2011) — Direct dating of a fossil of a Neanderthal infant suggests that Neanderthals probably died out earlier than previously thought.

Researchers have dated a Neanderthal fossil discovered in a significant cave site in Russia in the northern Caucasus, and found it to be 10,000 years older than previous research had suggested. This new evidence throws into doubt the theory that Neanderthals and modern humans interacted for...

Evolution of human 'super-brain' tied to development of bipedalism, tool-making

  • PDF
1000pa (Apr. 20, 2011) — Scientists seeking to understand the origin of the human mind may want to look to honeybees -- not ancestral apes -- for at least some of the answers, according to a University of Colorado Boulder archaeologist.

CU-Boulder Research Associate John Hoffecker said there is abundant fossil and archaeological evidence for the evolution of the human mind, including its unique power to create a potentially infinite variety...
