Brescia - "Età del rame - la pianura padana e le Alpi al tempo di Ötzi" - Mostre

Brescia - "Età del rame - la pianura padana e le Alpi al tempo di Ötzi" - Mostre | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

Al Diocesano di Brescia rivivrà l'età del Rame (3400 - 2200 a.C.). Fu un millennio fondamentale per l'umanità: "nascono" l'aratro, la ruota, l'aggiogamento degli animali per la trazione, il carro a quattro ruote, lo sviluppo della metallurgia del rame, spesso in lega con l'arsenico, l'agricoltura e l'allevamento, attività che favoriscono nuovi assetti economici e sociali...

MY DAD IS RICH – L’héritage des richesses daterait du Néolithique | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

A l'époque néolithique, déjà, la situation de son père était déterminante pour réussir dans la vie, comme le souligne un article du journal The Guardian. C'est ce qu'ont réussi à démontrer des chercheurs, à partir de l'étude de 300 squelettes datant du Néolithique, une époque remontant à environ 7 000 ans, retrouvés en Europe centrale. En mesurant leur taux d'isotopes radioactifs, ils se sont penchés sur le régime adopté dès l'enfance. Les résultats sont surprenants.

PNAS : Rethinking dog domestication by integrating genetics, archeology, and biogeography

PNAS : Rethinking dog domestication by integrating genetics, archeology, and biogeography | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

The dog was the first domesticated animal but it remains uncertain when the domestication process began and whether it occurred just once or multiple times across the Northern Hemisphere. To ascertain the value of modern genetic data to elucidate the origins of dog domestication, we analyzed 49,024 autosomal SNPs in 1,375 dogs (representing 35 breeds) and 19 wolves. After combining our data with previously published data, we contrasted the genetic signatures of 121 breeds with a worldwide archeological assessment of the earliest dog remains. Correlating the earliest archeological dogs with the geographic locations of 14 so-called “ancient” breeds (defined by their genetic differentiation) resulted in a counterintuitive pattern. First, none of the ancient breeds derive from regions where the oldest archeological remains have been found. Second, three of the ancient breeds (Basenjis, Dingoes, and New Guinea Singing Dogs) come from regions outside the natural range of Canis lupus (the dog’s wild ancestor) and where dogs were introduced more than 10,000 y after domestication. These results demonstrate that the unifying characteristic among all genetically distinct so-called ancient breeds is a lack of recent admixture with other breeds likely facilitated by geographic and cultural isolation. Furthermore, these genetically distinct ancient breeds only appear so because of their relative isolation, suggesting that studies of modern breeds have yet to shed light on dog origins. We conclude by assessing the limitations of past studies and how next-generation sequencing of modern and ancient individuals may unravel the history of dog domestication.

Occupy the Neolithic

Occupy the Neolithic | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

Even the most democratic societies are rife with social and economic inequalities, as the current tension between the poorer "99%" and the richest "1%" vividly illustrates. But just how early in human events such social hierarchies became entrenched has been a matter of debate. A new study of skeletons from prehistoric farming communities across Europe suggests that hereditary inequality was an early feature, going back more than 7000 years ago.
