In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the group describes finding the hand ax, their study of it and what they believe it represents.
The Dental Anthropology Group of the Centro Nacional de Investigacin sobre la Evolucin Humana (CENIEH), in collaboration with the paleoanthropologist Amlie Vialet of the Musum National d'Histoire Naturelle (MNHN) in Paris, has just published a detailed external and internal study of the molars in the mandible from the French site of Montmaurin-La Niche in the Journal of Human Evolution, whose results strengthen the hypothesis that the settlement of Europe could have been the result of several wa
TULSA, Okla. - Nearly a century after a brutal race massacre left as many as 300 black people dead, this city began to dig Monday for suspected mass graves from...
Its been just under a century since Tulsa, Okla., saw one of the most brutal and evil acts of American racism imaginable post-slavery. On May 31, 1921 hundreds of Black people were murdered and over a thousand homes, businesses, churches and schools were destroyed all because a Black teenager working as a shoe shiner was accused of assaulting a white woman. (That and because the area known as the Black Wall Street was an affluent Black neighborhood, and Black people thriving barely sits right wi
The history of human and cat relationships began 10,000 years ago. Its origins, however, still remain a mystery mainly due to scarcity of research material. Gaps in our knowledge in the subject are successfully filled by a group of researchers from the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toru?. Dr Magdalena Krajcarz has made an attempt to find ancestors of domestic cats in Neolithic Central Europe. An article discussing the topic has recently been published in PNAS.
It doesn't take a storm to inundate the coast with potentially ruinous floodwaters. "Nuisance" or "sunny day" high-tide flooding is becoming more commonplace.
From the Nile to the Mississippi and from the Amazon to the Yangzi, human civilization is inextricably linked to the great rivers along which our societies developed. But rivers are mutable, and the benefits they bestow can quickly become disasters when these waterways change course.

The bizarre pink snow can accelerate snow melt in the fragile mountain region.

Many skiers in the western US are familiar with the phenomenon of watermelon snow, a pink algae bloom appearing at high altitudes in the summer months.
Pink snow is appearing in the Italian Alps, offering clues as to mankind's impacts on the planet's climate. The snow changes color due to algae blooms which absorb even more heat and then melt more snow.
"Watermelon snow," also known as "pink snow," is common in the Alps during the summer, but one scientist says it's more prominent this year. Researcher Biagio Di Mauro thinks low snowfall and high atmospheric temperatures may have caused algal blooms to turn the snow pink.
The last time global carbon dioxide levels were around 400ppm was four million years ago. On average, the world was 3 warmer, but in high northern latitudes, it was up to 14 warmer than today.
