The Archaeology News Network: Help float Dover's Bronze Age boat!

The Archaeology News Network: Help float Dover's Bronze Age boat! | Aux origines | Scoop.it

Canterbury Archaeological Trust (CAT) is using the crowd-funding site Kickstarter to raise funds towards a replica of the Dover Bronze Age boat. The replica sewn-plank boat has already been built using oak timbers, bronze tools and authentic techniques but more funding is needed to take it to sea for the first time. 

Although half-scale, the boat measures 8m long and weighs about a ton. Having acted as the centrepiece of a major exhibition which has toured France and Belgium, the replica boat now needs to be stripped down and re-stitched ahead of taking it to sea.

Mass spectrometric U-series dating of Huanglong Cave in Hubei Province, central China: Evidence for early presence of modern humans in eastern Asia

Mass spectrometric U-series dating of Huanglong Cave in Hubei Province, central China: Evidence for early presence of modern humans in eastern Asia | Aux origines | Scoop.it

Most researchers believe that anatomically modern humans (AMH) first appeared in Africa 160-190 ka ago, and would not have reached eastern Asia until ∼50 ka ago. However, the credibility of these scenarios might have been compromised by a largely inaccurate and compressed chronological framework previously established for hominin fossils found in China. Recently there has been a growing body of evidence indicating the possible presence of AMH in eastern Asia ca. 100 ka ago or even earlier. Here we report high-precision mass spectrometric U-series dating of intercalated flowstone samples from Huanglong Cave, a recently discovered Late Pleistocene hominin site in northern Hubei Province, central China.

Researchers solve a 14,000-year-old ocean mystery

Researchers solve a 14,000-year-old ocean mystery | Aux origines | Scoop.it

At the end of the last Ice Age, as the world began to warm, a swath of the North Pacific Ocean came to life. During a brief pulse of biological productivity 14,000 years ago, this stretch of the sea teemed with phytoplankton, amoeba-like foraminifera and other tiny creatures, who thrived in large numbers until the productivity ended—as mysteriously as it began—just a few hundred years later.

Ils rejettent l’hypothèse interprétant celui-ci comme un Homo sapiens atteint de pathologie et soutiennent la thèse d'une espèce humaine distincte.

Found after 10,000 years: the world’s first calendar

Humans had a sophisticated calendrical system thousands of years earlier than previously thought, according to new research.

The discovery is based on a  detailed analysis of data from an archaeological site in northern Scotland – a row of ancient pits which archaeologists believe is the world’s oldest calendar. It is almost five thousand years older than its nearest rival – an ancient calendar from Bronze Age Mesopotamia.

Created by Stone Age Britons some 10,000 years ago, archaeologists believe that the complex of pits was designed to represent the months of the year and the lunar phases of the month. They believe it also allowed the observation of the mid-winter sunrise – in effect the birth of the new year – so that the lunar calendar could be annually re-calibrated to bring it back into line with the solar year.

Les hommes préhistoriques peignaient-ils sous hallucinogènes ?

Selon des scientifiques de l'université de Tokyo, les hommes préhistoriques décoraient il y a 40 000 ans les parois des grottes sous l'effet de substances psychotropes, rapporte le DailyMail britannique évoquant une publication dans la revue scientifique Adaptative Behavior.

Nous sommes devenus agriculteurs très progressivement

Un fait majeur de notre histoire a été le passage du mode de chasseur-cueilleur à celui d'agriculteur. Cela a permis l'émergence de civilisations. On sait que cet épisode s'est déroulé dans le « croissant fertile ». On vient de trouver de nombreux indices près du sud-est de l'Iran qui montrent que cette transition s'est déroulée à différents endroits de la région à peu près au même moment.
