Ice Age paintings from the Swabian Jura, Southwestern Germany document the earliest painting tradition in Central Europe

1000pa (Nov. 8, 2011) — Recent excavations conducted by the University of Tübingen at Hohle Fels Cave in the Swabian Jura of southwestern Germany have produced new evidence for the earliest painting tradition in Central Europe about 15,000 years ago. This period is referred to as the Magdalenian and is named after the site of La Madeleine in France.

Three of the new painting show double rows of red dots on limestone cobbles, while one...

Ancient DNA provides new insights into cave paintings of horses

1000pa (Nov. 7, 2011) — An international team of researchers has used ancient DNA to shed new light on the realism of horses depicted in prehistoric cave paintings.

The team, which includes researchers from the University of York, has found that all the colour variations seen in Paleolithic cave paintings -- including distinctive 'leopard' spotting -- existed in pre-domestic horse populations, lending weight to the argument that the artists...

Castles in the desert: Satellites reveal lost cities of Libya

1000pa (Nov. 7, 2011) — Satellite imagery has uncovered new evidence of a lost civilisation of the Sahara in Libya's south-western desert wastes that will help re-write the history of the country. The fall of Gaddafi has opened the way for archaeologists to explore the country's pre-Islamic heritage, so long ignored under his regime.

Using satellites and air-photographs to identify the remains in one of the most inhospitable parts of the...

Scientists race against time to save the last ‘Flying Pencil’, WWII bomber

1000pa (Nov. 3, 2011) — Scientists are in a race against time to help save the last remaining intact World War II German light bomber Dornier Do-17, known as The Flying Pencil (Fliegender Bleistift), which lies underwater in the English Channel off the Kentish coast in the UK.

The researchers, from Imperial College London, are donating their time and scientific expertise to help the Royal Air Force Museum rescue the submerged aircraft,...

Ancient cooking pots reveal gradual transition to agriculture

1000pa (Oct. 24, 2011) — Humans may have undergone a gradual rather than an abrupt transition from fishing, hunting and gathering to farming, according to a new study of ancient pottery.

Researchers at the University of York and the University of Bradford analysed cooking residues preserved in 133 ceramic vessels from the Western Baltic regions of Northern Europe to establish whether these residues were from terrestrial, marine or...

New evidence for the oldest oxygen-breathing life on land

1000pa (Oct. 19, 2011) — New University of Alberta research shows the first evidence that the first oxygen-breathing bacteria occupied and thrived on land 100 million years earlier than previously thought. The researchers show that the most primitive form of aerobic-respiring life on land came into existence 2.48 billion years ago.

The research team, led by U of A geomicrobiologist Kurt Konhauser, made their find by investigating a link...

Genetic study of cave millipedes reveals isolated populations and ancient divergence between species

1000pa (Oct. 17, 2011) — The International Journal of Myriapodology recently published the first population genetic study of cave millipedes. This research highlights an important challenge in the conservation of cave biodiversity -- that for many species caves are 'islands' of habitat that support isolated and genetically distinct populations.

The southern Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee and Alabama, USA is known for its high cave density....
