À la mode préhistorique

Cette fête-là est tout aussi ludique mais non moins physique. Elle se déroule samedi, à Saint-Just, épicentre de la terre des mégalithes, où l’on célèbre, en même temps, les 10 ans du CPIE Val de Vilaine. Toute la journée, les activités seront préhistoriques. Tracter et soulever des menhirs, fabriquer des bijoux, des instruments de musique, ou une pirogue à la manière des ancêtres. C’est drôle, parfois sportif, mais aussi très instructif. Au CPIE on assure même que les hommes du néolithique ont beaucoup à nous apprendre sur nous et sur notre futur… Gratuit.

MALTE : Reconstruction of the face of an ancient Maltese woman

Heritage Malta surprised guests at the Malta Fashion Week with an exhibition entitled 'Jewellery through the times' showing that Malta's first residents were not the aggressive, dirty individuals with unkempt hair which most imagine them to have been. The exhibition was followed by a fashion show of replica prehistoric jewellery, which preceded the main highlight: changing the misconception related to the image of prehistoric people by means of a unique reconstruction.
     The items featured in the fashion show were replicas of objects worn by individuals who lived on the Maltese islands some 5600 years ago. The artefacts exhibited were discovered at various prehistoric sites and form part of the permanent display at Heritage Malta's National Museum of Archaeology in Valletta.
     Heritage Malta also launched a 3D virtual reconstruction of facial features based on one of the prehistoric skulls (over 5,000 years old) found at the Xagħra Stone Circle in Gozo. It revealed, for the very first time, what one of the earliest Maltese actually looked like. It was a face which was much closer to what one would expect from a woman of our day and age rather than that of a person who lived on the islands over 5,000 years ago.

Edited from Times of Malta (7 May 2013), Gozo News (8 May 2013)

Est-ce que c'est compatible avec l'origine ibérique des Campaniformes ? Est-ce que ça peut avoir un lien avec l'indo-européen ?
Lemercier Olivier's comment, May 15, 2013 3:24 AM
Pour le moment c'est compatible avec l'idée de déplacements d'individus, de groupes ou de populations... Mais je m'en doutais un peu, d'autres études vont dans le même sens... Concernant ensuite, l'origine et le sens des circulations, c'est un autre débat. Il faut continuer à travailler. Et faire des analyses sur des échantillons beaucoup plus importants.

EURASIE : Ultraconserved words point to deep language ancestry across Eurasia

EURASIE : Ultraconserved words point to deep language ancestry across Eurasia | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

The search for ever deeper relationships among the World’s languages is bedeviled by the fact that most words evolve too rapidly to preserve evidence of their ancestry beyond 5,000 to 9,000 y. On the other hand, quantitative modeling indicates that some “ultraconserved” words exist that might be used to find evidence for deep linguistic relationships beyond that time barrier. Here we use a statistical model, which takes into account the frequency with which words are used in common everyday speech, to predict the existence of a set of such highly conserved words among seven language families of Eurasia postulated to form a linguistic superfamily that evolved from a common ancestor around 15,000 y ago. We derive a dated phylogenetic tree of this proposed superfamily with a time-depth of ∼14,450 y, implying that some frequently used words have been retained in related forms since the end of the last ice age. Words used more than once per 1,000 in everyday speech were 7- to 10-times more likely to show deep ancestry on this tree. Our results suggest a remarkable fidelity in the transmission of some words and give theoretical justification to the search for features of language that might be preserved across wide spans of time and geography.

Rock paintings dating back thousands of years ago have been found in the Turkish province of Aydın’s Çine district. Similar rock paintings have previously been found in the Beşparmak Mountains, Bafa Lake and its environs, all of which are located in an area divided between Muğla’s Milas district and Aydın’s Koçarlı and Söke districts.

The paintings, which are believed to be 7,500 years old, were discovered as part of work conducted by Tekirdağ Namık Kemal University Archaeology Department Professor Neşe Atik initiated in 2000.
