Lice DNA study shows humans first wore clothes 170,000 years ago

  • PDF
1000pa (Jan. 7, 2011) — A new University of Florida study following the evolution of lice shows modern humans started wearing clothes about 170,000 years ago, a technology which enabled them to successfully migrate out of Africa.

Principal investigator David Reed, associate curator of mammals at the Florida Museum of Natural History on the UF campus, studies lice in modern humans to better understand human evolution and migration patterns....

A toast to history: 500 years of wine-drinking cups mark social shifts in ancient Greece

Lynch will present the research at the event's Gold Medal Session, when archaeology's most distinguished honor will be...

Although the fossil evidence consists of just a bone fragment and one tooth, DNA extracted from the bone has yielded a draft genome...

Farmers slowed down by hunter-gatherers: Our ancestors' fight for space

  • PDF
1000pa (Dec. 3, 2010) — Farmers from the Near East spread throughout Europe around 7,000 years ago, but the hunter-gatherers of the north slowed their advance for around 15 centuries. Now, researchers from the University of Girona have developed a physical model to explain how this kind of competition developed throughout what is now Europe area during the Neolithic era.

One of the most significant socioeconomic changes in the history of...

Discovering the secrets of Stonehenge

  • PDF
1000pa (Nov. 30, 2010) — A revolutionary new idea on the movement of big monument stones like those at Stonehenge has been put forward by an archaeology student at the University of Exeter.

Whilst an undergraduate, Andrew Young saw a correlation between standing stone circles in Aberdeenshire, Scotland and a concentration of carved stone balls, which may have been used to help transport the big stones by functioning like ball bearings.

Young...
