Abandoned Andean hillfort town reveals incredible speed of Inca invasion | The Archaeology News Network

Abandoned Andean hillfort town reveals incredible speed of Inca invasion | The Archaeology News Network | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

Putting a number on how quickly people abandoned settlements hundreds of years ago is tricky using methods like radiocarbon dating, which are not very precise on those time scales. Another, less hi-tech but potentially more revealing method is to look at what people left behind after they fled. Did they have time to pack and clear out all their belongings, or were they forced to leave with little more than the clothes they were wearing?...

El hombre llegó a América 115.000 años antes de lo que se creía | ABC Color

El hombre llegó a América 115.000 años antes de lo que se creía | ABC Color | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

La exploración de un sitio arqueológico cerca de San Diego (California) reveló que una “especie de homínidos vivía en América del Norte 115.000 años antes de lo que pensábamos”, explicó Judy Gradwohl, presidenta del Museo de Historia Natural de San Diego, al frente de este estudio.

El equipo halló la osamenta de un mastodonte -ancestro del elefante- y utensilios de piedra con marcas de una intervención humana de unos 130.000 años de antigüedad, echando por tierra todas las teorías barajadas hasta el momento.

Aunque la cuestión sobre cuándo, cómo y por dónde llegaron los primeros hombres al continente americano divide a antropólogos y arqueólogos desde hace años, la hipótesis dominante es que lo hicieron hace unos 14.500 años y que procedían de Asia...

A Servant of Rhythm From Ghana, in Texas | The New York Times

A Servant of Rhythm From Ghana, in Texas | The New York Times | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

On the morning of the 20th annual African Cultural Festival at the University of North Texas here, Torgbui Midawo Gideon Foli Alorwoyie, the festival’s founder, was doing last-minute errands. There were drums to gather, programs to pick up from the printer, costumes to procure. For these annual events, he is his own promoter, his own publicist, his own street team.

“I do everything myself,” he explained from the driver’s seat of his minivan. Deep blue scars on his cheeks — marking him as a Midawo, or high priest, of the Yewe cult (which is part of the Ewe ethnic group) of Ghana’s Volta region — bent as he glanced between two different cellphones. A thick chain with a gold medallion in the shape of Africa glinted on his chest...

The Street with Trotsky’s Bones | The New York Review of Books | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

It was late December when Alex Webb asked me to write a piece for a book that collected thirty years of his photographs of Mexican streets. I remember it because my family and I were trying to cut as short as possible the New York winter by spending a month in Tepoztlán—a town forty-five minutes from Mexico City. I was familiar with Webb’s work on the Mexico-US border and found the project exciting because of his unusual way of looking at the country we both love: his superb pictures are all about the way in which the brutal light of Mexico casts a shadow on what one would rather not see. Webb is a master of color, but satisfied, too, to leave things in the darkness...

After Nearly a Century in Storage, These World War I Artworks Still Deliver the Vivid Shock of War | Smithsonian | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

After refusing for almost three years to engage in the brewing global conflict on the European continent, the United States finally entered World War I on April 6, 1917. When the Americans finally decided to commit, they did so in an enormous way and the country was forever changed by it. With the 1918 arrival in France of more than 500,000 soldiers, the United States, many have argued, assumed its current role as a global superpower.
Back home in typical American fashion, the once bitterly divided nation now offered a largely united public front towards the war effort. One of those who conscripted as a combat Marine was the 30-year-old Columbia University art instructor Claggett Wilson (1887-1952)...

Dismantling Stereotypes About Asian-American Identity Through Art | Huffington Post

Dismantling Stereotypes About Asian-American Identity Through Art | Huffington Post | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

Last week, a New York Magazine piece by Andrew Sullivan received legitimate blowback for a final paragraph that described Asian Americans as “among the most prosperous, well-educated, and successful ethnic groups in America.”
As NPR’s Kat Chow pointed out in a response, Sullivan’s assertion lumps together a hugely diverse population, equating the experience of a Filipino-American with that of a Japanese-American when research refutes the assumption. Chow condemned Sullivan’s continuation of the “model minority” myth, which congratulates Asian Americans for overcoming discrimination and systemic oppression...

The 82nd annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology (SAA) just took place last week in Vancouver, British Columbia. It was well attended, and with the political climate being what it is in the United States right now, many of the conversations I had centred around advocacy. Most of the professional archaeologists I know (I dare say all the professional archaeologists I know) are committed to fighting efforts that weaken protections for cultural resources. It is not cynical to say that as a discipline we are...
