In the depths of Bruniquel Cave, France, lie an enigmatic series of circles. They are made from stalagmites, on which a residue accumulated since they were placed. Radiometric dating this coating revealed these circles predated the arrival of modern humans in France. Clearly, Neanderthals must
DNA from modern humans who died out reveal there was more interbreeding with Neanderthals than expected. These extinct lineages had extra liaisons with them
Footprints reveal bands of Homo erectus trecked along the banks of a lake. They were likely hunting, and kept returning to the site for thousands of years.
Neanderthals hunting strategy was complex. They killed entire herds by starting a stampeded and driving them into traps. Humans used similar strategies.
A new analysis of Homo naledi revealed the species may be much younger than anticipated. Whilst the results aren’t conclusive, they are interesting
For at least 23 years Answers in Genesis has been reporting discoveries the Neanderthals weren’t dumb; along with quotes from scientists saying as such. Despite this, they’re still reporting on Neanderthal intelligence as controversial, with researchers begrudgingly “admitting” Answers in Genesis is right.
New hobbit fossils are ten times older than any we’ve discovered before, shedding light on the evolution of this enigmatic species. It turns out they’re likely descended from Homo erectus; but might not have evolved on the island where all their fossils have been found.
Bruniquel Cave Neanderthals made circular structures underground, which they lit with fires. Beyond that we don’t know much about them because there isn’t much there. Could this be evidence they were involved in ritual?
Man masturbates to “study” evolution of music. I’m not really sure what else I can add to that title here. It’s exactly like it sounds on the tin.
