The Archaeology News Network: New theory turns pyramid building on its head | Aux origines | Scoop.it

A Newport engineer says his discovery about how the Egyptian pyramids were built threatens to shake up the world of archaeology. Peter James revealed to Sarah Dickins how he thinks the accepted theories about pyramid building are wrong.

The Archaeology News Network: 1.4 million-year-old fossil human hand bone closes human evolution gap

The Archaeology News Network: 1.4 million-year-old fossil human hand bone closes human evolution gap | Aux origines | Scoop.it

Humans have a distinctive hand anatomy that allows them to make and use tools. Apes and other nonhuman primates do not have these distinctive anatomical features in their hands, and the point in time at which these features first appeared in human evolution is unknown. Now, a University of Missouri researcher and her international team of colleagues have found a new hand bone from a human ancestor who roamed the earth in East Africa...
