Protein preservation and DNA retrieval from ancient tissues. (1/404)

The retrieval of DNA from fossils remains controversial. To substantiate claims of DNA recovery, one needs additional information on the preservation of other molecules within the same sample. Flash pyrolysis with GC and MS was used to assess the quality of protein preservation in 11 archaeological and paleontological remains, some of which have yielded ancient DNA sequences authenticated via a number of criteria and some of which have consistently failed to yield any meaningful DNA. Several samples, including the Neanderthal-type specimen from which DNA sequences were recently reported, yielded abundant pyrolysis products assigned to 2,5-diketopiperazines of proline-containing dipeptides. The relative amounts of these products provide a good index of the amount of peptide hydrolysis and DNA preservation. Of these samples, four stem from arctic or subarctic regions, emphasizing the importance of cooler temperatures for the preservation of macromolecules. Flash pyrolysis with GC and MS offers a rapid and effective method for assessing fossils for the possibility of DNA preservation.  (+info)

Why hunter-gatherer populations do not show signs of pleistocene demographic expansions. (2/404)

The mitochondrial DNA diversity of 62 human population samples was examined for potential signals of population expansions. Stepwise expansion times were estimated by taking into account heterogeneity of mutation rates among sites. Assuming an mtDNA divergence rate of 33% per million years, most populations show signals of Pleistocene expansions at around 70,000 years (70 KY) ago in Africa and Asia, 55 KY ago in America, and 40 KY ago in Europe and the Middle East, whereas the traces of the oldest expansions are found in East Africa (110 KY ago for the Turkana). The genetic diversity of two groups of populations (most Amerindian populations and present-day hunter-gatherers) cannot be explained by a simple stepwise expansion model. A multivariate analysis of the genetic distances among 61 populations reveals that populations that did not undergo demographic expansions show increased genetic distances from other populations, confirming that the demography of the populations strongly affects observed genetic affinities. The absence of traces of Pleistocene expansions in present-day hunter-gatherers seems best explained by the occurrence of recent bottlenecks in those populations, implying a difference between Pleistocene (approximately 1,800 KY to 10 KY ago) and Holocene (10 KY to present) hunter-gatherers demographies, a difference that occurred after, and probably in response to, the Neolithic expansions of the other populations.  (+info)

Neanderthal cannibalism at Moula-Guercy, Ardeche, France. (3/404)

The cave site of Moula-Guercy, 80 meters above the modern Rhone River, was occupied by Neanderthals approximately 100,000 years ago. Excavations since 1991 have yielded rich paleontological, paleobotanical, and archaeological assemblages, including parts of six Neanderthals. The Neanderthals are contemporary with stone tools and faunal remains in the same tightly controlled stratigraphic and spatial contexts. The inference of Neanderthal cannibalism at Moula-Guercy is based on comparative analysis of hominid and ungulate bone spatial distributions, modifications by stone tools, and skeletal part representations.  (+info)

Mid-Pleistocene Acheulean-like stone technology of the Bose basin, South China. (4/404)

Stone artifacts from the Bose basin, South China, are associated with tektites dated to 803,000 +/- 3000 years ago and represent the oldest known large cutting tools (LCTs) in East Asia. Bose toolmaking is compatible with Mode 2 (Acheulean) technologies in Africa in its targeted manufacture and biased spatial distribution of LCTs, large-scale flaking, and high flake scar counts. Acheulean-like tools in the mid-Pleistocene of South China imply that Mode 2 technical advances were manifested in East Asia contemporaneously with handaxe technology in Africa and western Eurasia. Bose lithic technology is associated with a tektite airfall and forest burning.  (+info)

Rapid extinction of the moas (Aves: Dinornithiformes): model, test, and implications. (5/404)

A Leslie matrix population model supported by carbon-14 dating of early occupation layers lacking moa remains suggests that human hunting and habitat destruction drove the 11 species of moa to extinction less than 100 years after Polynesian settlement of New Zealand. The rapid extinction contrasts with models that envisage several centuries of exploitation.  (+info)

The initial domestication of goats (Capra hircus) in the Zagros mountains 10,000 years ago. (6/404)

Initial goat domestication is documented in the highlands of western Iran at 10,000 calibrated calendar years ago. Metrical analyses of patterns of sexual dimorphism in modern wild goat skeletons (Capra hircus aegagrus) allow sex-specific age curves to be computed for archaeofaunal assemblages. A distinct shift to selective harvesting of subadult males marks initial human management and the transition from hunting to herding of the species. Direct accelerator mass spectrometry radiocarbon dates on skeletal elements provide a tight temporal context for the transition.  (+info)

Pleistocene milestones on the out-of-Africa corridor at Gesher Benot Ya'aqov, israel. (7/404)

The Acheulean site of Gesher Benot Ya'aqov in the Dead Sea Rift of Israel documents hominin movements and technological development on a corridor between Africa and Eurasia. New age data place the site at 780,000 years ago (oxygen isotope stage 19), considerably older than previous estimates. The archaeological data from the site portray strong affinities with African stone tool traditions. The findings also reflect adroit technical skills and in-depth planning abilities, more advanced and complex than those of earlier archaeological occurrences in the Levant.  (+info)

Peopling the past: new perspectives on the ancient Maya. (8/404)

The new direction in Maya archaeology is toward achieving a greater understanding of people and their roles and their relations in the past. To answer emerging humanistic questions about ancient people's lives Mayanists are increasingly making use of new and existing scientific methods from archaeology and other disciplines. Maya archaeology is bridging the divide between the humanities and sciences to answer questions about ancient people previously considered beyond the realm of archaeological knowledge.  (+info)

The purpose of archaeology is to learn more about past societies and the development of the human race. Over 99% of the development of humanity has occurred within prehistoric cultures, who did not make use of writing, thereby no written records exist for study purposes. Without such written sources, the only way to understand prehistoric societies is through archaeology. Because archaeology is the study of past human activity, it stretches back to about 2.5 million years ago when we find the first stone tools - The Oldowan Industry. Many important developments in human history occurred during prehistory, such as the evolution of humanity during the Paleolithic period, when the hominins developed from the australopithecines in Africa and eventually into modern Homo sapiens. Archaeology also sheds light on many of humanitys technological advances, for instance the ability to use fire, the development of stone tools, the discovery of metallurgy, the beginnings of religion and the creation of ...

Introduction: Archeology is a scientific discipline that merges the humanities study of human activities, behavior, and thoughts with a scientific approach, methods, and techniques to this subject matter. Archeology is concerned with tools and other artifacts of human culture, heir relative contexts, and related environmental data. The archeologist attempts to reconstruct and interpret the past by analyzing, dating, and comparing systematically investigated sites and artifacts through the analysis of material remains, other evidence of human activity, and their contexts. There are two major types of archeology in the U.S.: archeology of everything preceding the earliest period of recorded history in a given area, or prehistoric archeology; and the archeology from the appearance in a given area of written records, referred to as document or text-aided historical archeology.. The concerns of archeologists can be summarized as follows:. Archeological sites and materials should be protected, ...
By Ben Marwick, University of Washington and University of Wollongong.. Recently we concluded the 2017 Summer School on Reproducible Research in Landscape Archaeology at the Freie Universität Berlin (17th-21th July), funded and jointly organised by Exc264 Topoi, CRC1266, and ISAAKiel. With a group of 15 archaeologists and geographers from Berlin, Kiel and Cologne, we spent a week learning advanced geostatistics and how to make our research more reproducible. Reproducibility is a relatively new concept for archaeology; it has only recently received some attention, and so we encountered many challenges in teaching and learning this unfamiliar subject. The general idea is that a piece of research, such as a publication, should contain enough information for another researcher to reproduce the results in that paper. In former times, when archaeology was simpler than today, this was relatively straightforward. However, that is not the case nowadays, with computers and complex software and algorithms ...

Chronology is archaeologys chief preoccupation and prerequisite. The Earliest Americans Theme Study recognizes three major Paleoindian intervals, a possible pre-Clovis one, and a post-Paleoindian one equivalent to what most archaeologists call the Early Archaic Period. Midwestern Paleoindian chronology rests on radiocarbon (and, secondarily, thermoluminescent) dating, typological cross-dating with well dated assemblages and industries elsewhere, geochronology and seriation. Despite the many sources of evidence and inference, Midwestern Paleoindian chronology is highly imperfect, to say the least. Few doubt that Paleoindian cultures arose more than 11,000 rcbp and endured at least for centuries. But many continue to doubt that Paleoindians were the first people in the New World, instead claiming that they were preceded by ancestral cultures reaching back perhaps millennia. Thus, the antiquity of first human occupation must be distinguished from Paleoindian antiquity.. Pre-Clovis Claims in the ...

Archaeology studies the development of humanity by examining surviving material remains (e.g. tombs, temples, settlements, skeletons, artefacts and the landscape context from which they were recovered). Through the information gained it is possible to trace our economic, cultural, social and spiritual developments through time. At Queens, Palaeoecology complements Archaeology by studying the nature and timing of environmental changes in the past, including climate change. This brings a highly integrated approach to assessing how human activities have been shaped by and, in turn, have impacted upon the natural environment and a means to disentangle human impact from natural variability.. Although, by their very nature, Archaeology and Palaeoecology are concerned with the past, both disciplines have a role in the present, as well as the future. The threats to our environment and landscape through urban, industrial and agricultural development have never been greater. Globally, archaeological and ...

Prior to the construction of Navajo Reservoir in the 1960s, an abundance of Navajo sites and rock art filled the canyons. This was the northern edge of the Dinetah, the old Navajo homeland, where, from the 1400s to the 1750s, the culture flourished and developed much of what marks the Navajo culture today. The rock art is connected to Navajo archeoastronomy and spirituality, said Janet Clawson-Cano, park naturalist.. At 9 a.m., June 28, learn about rock art and Navajo Reservoir at the visitors center. Kids will get to draw their own rock art image and learn about preservation and archaeology.. At 6 p.m., Clawson-Cano will present Dinetah Rock Art and Navajo Reservoir Archaeology at the visitors center.. At 9 a.m., June 29, hikers will gather at the Sambrito Wetlands trailhead and learn about the archaeological history of that area.

SCIENTIFIC CORRESPONDENCE. Were environmental or demographic factors the driving force behind Middle Stone Age innovations in southern Africa? Sir Past human responses to environmental changes have long interested archaeologists. During the last glacial cycle, southern Africa experienced marked climatic fluctuations, as recorded in ice-core records from West and East Antarctica.1 7 Two phases of technological and behavioural innovation, known as the Still Bay (SB) and Howiesons Poort (HP) industries, also occurred during this interval of the Middle Stone Age (MSA). Recently, we reported improved estimates for the start and end dates, and durations, of these two industries, and argued that the SB and HP did not reflect a response to environmental factors alone.8 11 We drew this conclusion for two reasons. First, we noted that the HP occurred during a period of climatic warming between c. 65 and 60 thousand years ago (kyr), regardless of which Antarctic ice core is chosen for comparison, whereas ...
Wessex Archaeology has just launched a new project to promote the regions marine heritage. This has been made possible by a £50,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). Archaeologists are inviting the public to join them to Time Travel by Water into the past on a voyage of discovery.. The project aims to bring school children and community groups across Wiltshire, Dorset, Somerset and Gloucestershire right up to date with the new ways marine heritage is being explored and some of the amazing new discoveries.. Time Team TV celebrity Phil Harding, whose day job is with Wessex Archaeology said I am excited by this project. Most people think of marine history as being about galleons and doubloons. That part of seafaring history is important, but an amazing range of other work is being done: on wrecks, in harbours, and all along the coast. Some of the most hi-tech kit you will ever see on an archaeological project is the scientific survey gear marine archaeologists use. Now you dont need ...
Tombs have been used extensively as one of the most informative sources for reconstructing social structures and beliefs in the archaeology of the Late Bronze Age in the southern Aegean. Rock-cut chamber tombs, in particular, have been found by the thousands over the last 150 years; they are the most prevalent Mycenaean tomb type. Yet, most have been excavated as part of salvage operations with limited documentation and no final publication. Furthermore, for a long time, attention was drawn to the objects that were coming out of the ground, with limited interest in the deceased population for whom the tombs were built and the objects deposited in the first place. Interdisciplinary studies have been few and far between, and what has been lacking is an integrated social archaeology of death in which people, organic residues, and artefacts formed the focus of attention in order to learn more about the bio- and social archaeology of the population under investigation. With the number of secured ...

Archaeology - Interpretation: Excavation often seems to the general public the main and certainly the most glamorous aspect of archaeology; but fieldwork and excavation represent only a part of the archaeologists work. The other part is the interpretation in cultural and historical contexts of the facts established-by chance, by fieldwork, and by digging-about the material remains of mans past. This task of interpretation has five main aspects. The first concern is the accurate and exact description of all the artifacts concerned. Classification and description are essential to all archaeological work, and, as in botany and zoology, the first requirement is a good and
Imported ancient Etruscan amphoras and a limestone press platform, discovered at the ancient port site of Lattara in southern France, have provided the earliest known biomolecular archaeological evidence of grape wine and winemaking -- and point to the beginnings of a Celtic or Gallic vinicultural industry in France circa 500-400 BCE. Details of the discovery are published as The Beginning of Viniculture in France in the June 3, 2013 issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). Dr. Patrick McGovern, Director of the Biomolecular Archaeology Laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology and author of Ancient Wine: The Search for the Origins of Viniculture (Princeton University Press, 2006) is the lead author on the paper, which was researched and written in collaboration with colleagues from France and the United States. ...

Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by Hyder Consulting (UK) Ltd (the Client) to undertake an archaeological evaluation of land at the former Defence Estates Head Quarters, High Street, Durrington, Wiltshire NGR 415400 144700, hereafter referred to as the Site. The Site is proposed for residential development with the western part of the area left as open space. Twelve trenches were excavated, varying between four and thirty metres long. Archaeological features were found in five of the trenches, in the north of the Site, two of these trenches were located in a paddock, the other three were located to the north of the trackway bisecting the field to the rear of the Red House. The recorded features consisted of pits and ditches primarily of Iron Age and Romano-British date. The same area of the Site was found to contain extensive deposits of colluvium, or hillwash, that was deposited between

Archaeology is by its identity an inductive, data-rich, detail-oriented science.

You can read thousands of pages of archaeology short encountering anything the deserves the name of conclusion, or any big notion about the previous.Yet give are big stuff in archaeology. Added as it is educated in universities, archaeology is all international up with ideas of cultural society, family similarity, femininity studies, and so on. I find, though, that these sorts of stuff grip practically no influence on how I do my work or what I grasp about seeing that I go to archaeological conferences. This brings me to Genes, Memes, and Secular History: Darwinian Archaeology and Cultural Augmentation (2002), by British archaeologist ...
Most of Earths rain falls in the tropics, often in highly seasonal monsoon rains, which are thought to be coupled to the inter-hemispheric migrations of the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone in response to the seasonal cycle of insolation. Yet characterization of tropical rainfall behaviour in the geologic past is poor. Here we combine new and existing hydroclimate records from six large-scale tropical regions with fully independent model-based rainfall reconstructions across the last interval of sustained warmth and ensuing climate cooling between 130 to 70 thousand years ago (Marine Isotope Stage 5). Our data-model approach reveals large-scale heterogeneous rainfall patterns in response to changes in climate. We note pervasive dipole-like tropical precipitation patterns, as well as different loci of pre- cipitation throughout Marine Isotope Stage 5 than recorded in the Holocene. These rainfall patterns cannot be solely attributed to meridional shifts in the Inter-Tropical Convergence ...

With the construction of the San Pedro Sunset Boardwalk replacing the old Saca Chispas Football Field, there is major excavation taking place. And with the excavation comes the unexpected unearthing of antique items such as bottles and Maya artifacts. For that reason the Institute of Archeology dispatched personnel to San Pedro Town on Monday, September 17th to rescue, recover, document and transport whatever antique bottles and Maya artifacts found during the excavation process.. The team, consisting of two representatives of the Institute of Archeology and senior students of the San Pedro High School as volunteers, combed through large piles of excavated material in search of larger pieces or intact old bottles and whatever Maya artifacts that could be found. Archeologist at the Institute of Archeology Silvia Batty said that they are also monitoring the excavation. Currently we are monitoring the excavation because we received reports that there were bottles coming up so we wanted to see the ...
Unless you were one of the first Americans, a Native American, you came from someplace else, somebody brought you, President Barack Obama told the assembled throngs in Las Vegas on Tuesday. Perhaps to make sense of the empty phrase Native American, Obama seems to have overlooked the most contentious debate in modern archaeology: when did the first waves of humanity reach the Americas and where did they come from? The only real consensus among archaeologists is that everyone in America came from someplace else. Or as the Bill Murray character memorably said in Stripes, Were Americans, with a capital A, huh? You know what that means? Do ya? That means that our forefathers were kicked out of every decent country in the world. For years, the Clovis First hypothesis held sway in the academy. This school argued that the so-called Clovis people (they didnt call themselves that) crossed the land bridge from Siberia to Alaska during the most recent ice...(Read Full Post) ...
Thermoluminescence dating of fire-heated flint artefacts, and directly associated newly discovered remains of Homo sapiens, indicate that the Middle Stone Age site of Jebel Irhoud in Morocco is 383-247 thousand years old. The exact place and time that our species emerged remains obscure because the fossil record is limited and the chronological age of many key specimens remains uncertain. Previous fossil evidence has placed the emergence of modern human biology in eastern Africa around 200,000 years ago. In this issue of Nature, Jean-Jaques Hublin and colleagues report new human fossils from Jebel Irhoud, Morocco; their work is accompanied by a separate report on the dating of the fossils by Shannon McPherron and colleagues. Together they report remains dating back 300,000-350,000 years. They identify numerous features, including a facial, mandibular and dental morphology, that align the material with early or recent modern humans. They also identified more primitive neurocranial and endocranial

In 1987, the remains of an 18-22-year-old woman, now dubbed Ava, were discovered at Achavanich in Caithness in the north of Scotland. The site was excavated by the Highland Regional Council Archaeology Unit, and the burial was later dated to the Middle Bronze Age. Although the discovery is interesting, and one aspect of it has been hotly debated by researchers, it was soon forgotten by most people. Now, an archaeologist is working to change that. Archaeologist Maya Hoole hopes to renew public interest in the burial from about 3,700 years ago. As she told the BBC , Like many others, Im sure, I find skeletal remains completely mesmerising. On Hooles website, the Achavanich Beaker Burial Project , she explains her goal further: I had one objective when I started this project: to change our understanding of this site and, over the last year, have been trying to make this happen. Hoole believes that a renewed interest and modern technology could make this happen, revealing much more about the ...
The Histories of Material Culture and Collecting provides a forum for the broad study of object acquisition and collecting practices in their global dimensions from 1700 to 1950. The series seeks to illuminate the intersections between material culture studies, art history, and the history of collecting. It takes as its starting point the idea that objects both contributed to the formation of knowledge in the past and likewise contribute to our understanding of the past today. The human relationship to objects has proven a rich field of scholarly inquiry, with much recent scholarship either anthropological or sociological rather than art historical in perspective. Underpinning this series is the idea that the physical nature of objects contributes substantially to their social meanings, and therefore that the visual, tactile, and sensual dimensions of objects are critical to their interpretation. This series therefore seeks to bridge anthropology and art history, sociology and aesthetics. It ...
The metal used for weapons, the weaving techniques used for tunics, and the visual imagery all provide important information about the cultural context of an Andean artwork. The Inca and pre-Inca cultures of the Andes flourished for over three thousand years. While they fashioned detailed recording devices from knotted cords, ancient Andean populations did not utilize a recognizable writing system. Scholars of Andean cultures, therefore, focus their investigations on the material remains of these impressive world cultures. During this talk, Dr. Kimberly L. Jones, curator of the current exhibition Inca: Conquests of the Andes/Los Incas y las conquistas de los Andes, will highlight metal weapons, weaving techniques and visual imagery of particular objects to demonstrate how joint archaeological research and material studies serve to enrich understanding of ancient Andean cultures..

The southern Australian continental margin is an immense cool-water carbonate factory. The high-energy open shelf is blanketed by heterozoan carbonates of both Holocene and late Pleistocene age. Three distinct grain types have been identified and radiocarbon dated. These include (1) relict grains, highly abraded iron-stained intraclasts formed during the intermediate sea-level stands of Marine Isotope Stages 3 and 4, (2) stranded grains, gray and buff-colored abraded biofragments and intraclasts marooned during the sea-level rise associated with Marine Isotope Stage 2, and (3) Holocene grains, unaltered biofragments formed during Marine Isotope Stage 1. Optical, mineralogical, and chemical characterization of grains of each age has revealed pathways of early diagenesis in this realm. Both calcitic and aragonite biogenic grains undergo dissolution. While dissolution of calcitic components is minor and incomplete (relict sediments are predominantly Mg calcite), aragonitic skeletons undergo ...
April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online. At the Tayinat Archaeological Project (TAP) excavation site in Turkey, archaeologists have unearthed two new and exciting sculptures. One is a large, semi-circular column base, ornately decorated on one side and the other is a beautiful and colossal human sculpture. These cultural treasures are both from a monumental gate complex that provided access to the upper citadel of Kunulua, capital of the Neo-Hittite Kingdom of Patina that existed from approximately 1000 - 738 BC.. These newly discovered Tayinat sculptures are the product of a vibrant local Neo-Hittite sculptural tradition, said Professor Tim Harrison, the Tayinat Project director and professor of Near Eastern Archaeology in the University of Torontos Department of Near and Middle Eastern Civilizations. They provide a vivid glimpse into the innovative character and sophistication of the Iron Age cultures that emerged in the eastern Mediterranean following the collapse of the ...

At the start of 2015 Robert Bettinger published a book length account of Californian societies based on a large review of archaeological evidence (Bettinger 2015). The narrative describes a gradual reduction in social group size, linked to developments in technology and changes in the environment. Bettinger argues that these changes led to the widespread and prolonged existence of small non-hierarchical social groups he characterises as orderly anarchy. A symposium was organised at the 2015 Society for American Archaeologists conference to discuss the implications of Bettingers work and this suggests a widening interest in the archaeological use of anarchist theory.. Anarchic Archaeology in Britain and Ireland. Given the much greater separation between archaeology and anthropology that exists in Britain and Ireland than is found in America and Europe it is perhaps unsurprising that developments in anarchic anthropology have attracted little attention. Earlier this year I published a short ...

The presence of later, often historically and artistically valuable, structures and paintings as well as multi-layered stratigraphy, environmental and soil conditions can affect the way archaeologists operate underground and represent a challenge to research and conservation in situ. Working underground can also present particular challenges with regard to safety, communication and equipment use.
