Alain Testart : armes tranchantes et femmes désarmées

Alain Testart : armes tranchantes et femmes désarmées | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

Cela fait bien longtemps, plusieurs décennies peut-être, que plus personne ne parlait des anthropologues Raoul et Laura Makarius. Et voilà que leurs thèses reviennent en force grâce à l’ouvrage posthume d’Alain Testart L’amazone et la cuisinière, Anthropologie de la division sexuelle du travail, (éd. Gallimard, 2014). Pourtant, on persiste à les ignorer. Car on ne les cite pas. Alain Testart lui-même se garde bien d’exposer et de discuter leurs thèses dans le corps de son ouvrage.

KAZAKHSTAN : : Ancient nomads spread earliest domestic grains along Silk Road

KAZAKHSTAN : : Ancient nomads spread earliest domestic grains along Silk Road | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

Charred grains of barley, millet and wheat deposited nearly 5,000 years ago at campsites in the high plains of Kazakhstan show that nomadic sheepherders played a surprisingly important role in the early spread of domesticated crops throughout a mountainous east-west corridor along the historic Silk Road, suggests new research from Washington University in St. Louis.

SUISSE : La preistoria esposta a Berna

Oggetti preistorici risalenti a 4500 anni fa - mille anni prima del famoso Ötzi, l'uomo dei ghiacci - e trovati casualmente da una coppia di escursionisti nel 2003 su un ghiacciaio dell'Oberland bernese, saranno esposti da domani e fino al 26 ottobre al Museo di storia di Berna, per la prima volta al pubblico.

Si tratta di indumenti in cuoio, spille in bronzo, una faretra e delle frecce, portati alla luce sullo Schnidejoch, che culmina a 2.756 metri, al confine tra i cantoni di Berna e Vallese.

La datazione per questi oggetti, i più antichi mai trovati sulle Alpi, è stata fatta dal Politecnico federale di Zurigo, grazie al radiocarbonio. Gli esperti dicono che il materiale estratto dai ghiacci rappresenta una fonte per capire la storia dell'attraversamento delle Alpi dal Neolitico fino all'impero romano.

POLEMIQUE : Dusan Boric is coming to the SAA meeting in the USA (Austin, Texas, April 23-27) | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

The new leader of Neolithic European research at Cardiff University, Dusan Boric, is coming to the SAA meeting in the USA. It is hard to say from the abstract (see below) what is exactly his contribution to the research but being in an international team studying the earliest hunting in human history may provide some really new interesting insights into one of the most attractive subsistence and entertainment activities for people from the beginning of human history.

IRLANDE : 4,500 year-old path discovered near Galway Bay used by Celts

IRLANDE : 4,500 year-old path discovered near Galway Bay used by Celts | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

The discovery of a pathway within a 7,500-year-old ‘drowned forest’ on the Galway shoreline has been hailed by geologists and historians as it suggests human habitation.

The Irish Times reports that the track could be between 3,500 and 4,500 years old.

It was discovered after the recent heavy storms and may have been built when the sea level was rising and was gradually enveloping the forest that pre-dated Galway Bay according to the report.

NUI Galway geologist Prof Mike Williams has researched the ‘drowned forest’ which comprises of a layer of peat and tree stumps uncovered by the winter storms.

FRANCE : Avis aux jeunes chercheurs

FRANCE : Avis aux jeunes chercheurs | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

Le Musée du quai Branly à Paris propose pour cette année encore des bourses doctorales et postdoctorales afin de “soutenir des projets de recherche originaux et innovants”. Les candidats sélectionnés auront de plus la possibilité de présenter un article destiné à être soumis à publication scientifique dans le cadre du séminaire interne du département de recherche et d’enseignement du musée. Une bonne occasion de gagner en visibilité à l’échelle nationale. Au total, sept disciplines sont concernées par ce soutien (l’anthropologie, l’ethnomusicologie, l’histoire de l’art, l’histoire, l’archéologie à partir du néolithique, la sociologie et les arts du spectacle). Les domaines de recherche privilégiés sont notamment les patrimoines matériels et immatériels, la culture matérielle ou la performance rituelle.

SUISSE : Les cernes du bois au service de l'archéologie

La dendrochronologie est une méthode de datation basée sur les cernes du bois. Appliquée aux vestiges lacustres, elle fait la fierté de Neuchâtel, qui a été le deuxième lieu en Suisse à disposer d'un laboratoire destiné exclusivement à la datation de bois archéologiques. Outre des avancées capitales dans la connaissance du Néolithique et de l'âge du Bronze, la dendrochronologie a permis de recalibrer les datations au carbone 14, méthode phare de l'archéologie moderne. Doctorante à l'Institut d'archéologie de l'Université de Neuchâtel, Géraldine Delley s'est intéressée aux modalités d'intégration de ces nouveaux outils dans la recherche lacustre suisse entre 1950 et 1980. Elle a soutenu, récemment, sa thèse réalisée sous la supervision de Marc-Antoine Kaeser, directeur du Laténium et professeur associé à l'Université de Neuchâtel.

“Our findings indicate that ancient nomadic pastoralists were key players in an east-west network that linked innovations and commodities between present-day China and southwest Asia,” said study co-author Michael Frachetti, PhD, an associate professor of archaeology in Arts & Sciences at Washington University and principal investigator on the research project.
