IRAN : Origins Of Agriculture In The Fertile Crescent -- Farming Began In Several Places At Once, Research Finds

IRAN : Origins Of Agriculture In The Fertile Crescent -- Farming Began In Several Places At Once, Research Finds | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

The exact origins of agriculture — if there are any which can be recognized in archaeological records — are something of a mystery. But now, new research has shed some further light on subject — the foothills of the Zagros Mountains of Iran in the eastern Fertile Crescent also served as a key center for early domestication along with the already known early plant domestication that took place in the western and northern Fertile Crescent.

IRAN : les débuts de l'agriculture en Iran

IRAN : les débuts de l'agriculture en Iran | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

Il y a près de 12 000 ans, les habitants de Chogha Golan, au pied des monts Zagros en Iran, ont commencé à planter des semences d’orge sauvage et de lentilles, d’après une recherche publiée le 5 juillet dans la revue Science. Ces travaux menés par les archéologues Simone Riehl et Nicholas Conard (université de Tübingen, Allemagne), démontrent pour la première fois que l’Iran a été l’un des lieux de la révolution agricole du néolithique,  qui s’est développée dans le Croissant fertile, qui s’étire du Proche-Orient et du sud de la Turquie jusqu’au Golfe persique.

Près de Bayeux, des traces de vie datant de 5 000 ans avant notre ère !

Depuis le début du mois de mai et jusqu’à la fin du mois de juin, d’importantes fouilles archéologiques sont en cours à Vaucelles, commune située aux portes de Bayeux. Elles se déroulent en amont d’un aménagement foncier. Autrement dit : la construction d’un nouveau quartier, d’ores et déjà baptisé éco-quartier. Quatre hectares seront consacrés à des logements et deux autres à un parc d’activité économique. Six archéologues de l’Institut national de recherches archéologiques préventives (Inrap) ratissent inlassablement les quatre hectares de terrain à des endroits bien stratégiques. « On travaille sur une surface d’environ 1,5 ha », explique Hubert Lepaumier, archéologue.

First farmers were also inbred

First farmers were also inbred | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

Humans have been mating with their relatives for at least 10,000 years. That's the conclusion of a new study, which finds the earliest known evidence of deliberate inbreeding—including missing teeth—among farmers who lived in what is today southern Jordan. Although inbreeding over long periods can lead to a rise in genetic defects, the team concludes that it may have helped prehistoric peoples make the transition from hunting and gathering to village life.

FRANCE : Près de la gare principale, découverte d’un four néolithique

De la mi-avril à la mi-mai, l’Unité d’archéologie de Saint-Denis a entrepris une fouille préventive à l’emplacement futur du parvis ouest de la gare, entre celle-ci et la rue Charles-Michels (coté Seine).

IRLANDE : Irish Cepaea nemoralis Land Snails Have a Cryptic Franco-Iberian Origin That Is Most Easily Explained by the Movements of Mesolithic Humans

IRLANDE : Irish Cepaea nemoralis Land Snails Have a Cryptic Franco-Iberian Origin That Is Most Easily Explained by the Movements of Mesolithic Humans | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

The origins of flora and fauna that are only found in Ireland and Iberia, but which are absent from intervening countries, is one of the enduring questions of biogeography. As Southern French, Iberian and Irish populations of the land snail Cepaea nemoralis sometimes have a similar shell character, we used mitochondrial phylogenies to begin to understand if there is a shared “Lusitanian” history. Although much of Europe contains snails with A and D lineages, by far the majority of Irish individuals have a lineage, C, that in mainland Europe was only found in a restricted region of the Eastern Pyrenees. A past extinction of lineage C in the rest of Europe cannot be ruled out, but as there is a more than 8000 year continuous record of Cepaea fossils in Ireland, the species has long been a food source in the Pyrenees, and the Garonne river that flanks the Pyrenees is an ancient human route to the Atlantic, then we suggest that the unusual distribution of the C lineage is most easily explained by the movements of Mesolithic humans. If other Irish species have a similarly cryptic Lusitanian element, then this raises the possibility of a more widespread and significant pattern.

IRLANDE : Snails Reveal Ancient Human Migration from France to Ireland | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

A recent study of the mitochondrial DNA of the Cepaea nemoralis land snail, a snail curiously common only between Ireland and the Pyrenees region of Southern France, has led researchers to conclude the possibility that ancient Mesolithic people carried the fauna with them in a migration from the French region to Ireland about 8,000 years ago. .
