Gyptis, réplique d’une barque antique de pêche, est prête à reprendre la mer après un hiver passé au sec. Flash-back sur sa fabrication, sans clou ni vis, grâce à des spécialistes en archéologie expérimentale qui ont reproduit les gestes et le savoir-faire des charpentiers grecs de l’époque.
On sait que notre Planète, vieille de 4,5 milliards d’années, abrite la vie depuis au moins 3,8 milliards d’années. Lorsque les tout premiers organismes vivants sont apparus sur notre Planète, celle-ci avait une température de 40 à 85° et une atmosphère bien différente de celle d’aujourd’hui, ...
The role of the pig in the subsistence system of the Middle East has a long and, in some cases, poorly understood history. It is a common domesticated animal in earlier archaeological sites throughout the Middle East. Sometime in the first millennium
A new study published by PeerJ documents injuries inflicted in life and death to a large tyrannosaurine dinosaur. The paper shows that the skull of a genus of tyrannosaur called Daspletosaurus suffered numerous injuries during life, at least some of which were likely inflicted by another Daspletosaurus. It was also bitten after death in an apparent event of scavenging by another tyrannosaur.
Burying the dead with a human sacrifice was a common custom in ancient Korea. But in a peculiar case, Korean archaeologists have uncovered a 5th- to 6th-century tomb from Korea’s Silla Dynasty (57 B.C. to A.D. 935) in which a young woman and man are buried together - lying next to each other - raising the possibility that it represents an image of two people making love.
L’Afrique de l’est n'est pas la seule à avoir été peuplée il y a plus de 3,5 millions d’années. Une nouvelle étude sur l'australopithèque "Little Foot" met en avant l'Afrique du Sud comme terrain de jeu des hominidés.
For many decades, scientists have tried to understand the past by doing as our forebears did. One important endeavor in what is called experimental archaeology involves moderns crafting Stone Age tools by chipping away at rocks. Why toil at whittling rocks by hand using other rocks when machine tools are readily available?
One reason is to get at the question of what role toolmaking may have played in brain evolution, given the demands this task places on both mental faculties and motor skills. Toolmaking’s contribution to human evolution is controversial, though. Some theorists suggest that Paleolithic tool manufacture has little to with neural development, others hold that it is a driving force for our swollen frontal lobes.
The advent of the brain scanner has opened up the possibility of finding out who is right. I talked to Dietrich Stout, a professor of anthropology at Emory University about a recent paper in PLOS One that looked at the demands on brainpower that toolmaking placed on our Paleolithic ancestors from 500,000 to 2.6 million years ago.
