Advanced computer modelling of hominin dispersal from Africa: integrating archaeological and palaeoclimatic simulations

Paul Valdes, Steven Mithen, Bruce Sellwood, Sam Smith, Alan Haywood & John Hughes
The project aim was to develop process-based computer simulations of the dispersal of Homo erectus out of Africa. This involved developing realistic constraints on the patterns of vegetation and the effects of changes in global sea level. It was assumed that this migration out of Africa could be investigated through the paradigm of a single migration event, starting around 2 millions of years ago and arriving in Dmanisi around 1.8 millions of years ago. The...

To relate landscape changes produced by the WW2...

Pig Measurements from Durrington Walls (Wiltshire, England)

Umberto Albarella & Sebastian Payne
Excavations at the late Neolithic site of Durrington Walls, Wiltshire, in 1966-67 unearthed large numbers of well-preserved pig teeth and bones. This has provided the opportunity to build up a data set of measurements that can be of great use as a comparative baseline for other European material. Tables of measurements from 12 skeletal elements are available for download as ASCII comma separated value (.csv) files suitable for loading into spreadsheets or databases. Explanations of...
