  1. In order to resolve long-standing issues surrounding the age of the Skhul early modern humans, new analyses have been conducted, including the dating of four well-provenanced fossils by ESR and U-series. If the Skhul burials took place within a…
  2. The decay of uranium in natural materials provides a clock for establishing Quaternary timescales. In particular, reef coral and cave deposit dating has been of crucial importance for calibrating the radiocarbon timescales, establishing sea level…
  3. The Campo de Tiro type-section for the Tyrrhenian ecostratigraphic beds of the Balearic Islands shows four indurated littoral conglomerates and beach-rocks, unconformably superimposed. The lower two units (1 and 2) are separated by a thin layer of…
  4. This study evaluates the accuracy of U/Th dates for young (< a few thousand years old) reef corals, both living and fossil, and explores strategies for refining those dates. The high precision of the U/Th method (??1-2%) for dating young corals is…
  5. Aerial photogrammetric surveys are usually expensive and the resolution of the acquired images is often limited. For this reason, different innovative systems have been developed and tested in order to perform a photogrammetric survey in an…
  6. A bell beaker sherd with an "all-over corded" type of decoration is presented; the piece was found at the prehistoric site of Castelo Velho, near Freixo de Numão (Vila Nova de Foz Côa, northern Portugal). The importance of this discovery is briefly…
  7. The Côa Valley rock art constitutes one of the most significant archaeological sites in Portugal and Europe as its inscription in the UNESCO’s World Heritage List illustrates. Therefore, the Côa Valley Archaeological Park, as the state body…
  8. Evidence of the effect of external infl uences on the climate system has continued to accumulate since the Third Assessment Report (TAR). The evidence now available is substantially stronger and is based on analyses of widespread temperature…
  9. We propose that the crucial difference between human cognition and that of other species is the ability to participate with others in collaborative activities with shared goals and intentions: shared intentionality. Participation in such activities…
  10. Fragmented, co-mingled assemblages of human and animal bones are not uncommon in archaeological deposits, particularly in prehistoric contexts. It is suggested, firstly, that standard approaches to studying the human material do not lend themselves…
  11. Recent claims of culture in great apes have provoked fervent argument about the 'true' definition of culture, most of which has been unhelpful. Instead, a range of definitions should be used to explore different aspects of the cognitive processes…
  12. Explanations for women's underrepresentation in math-intensive fields of science often focus on sex discrimination in grant and manuscript reviewing, interviewing, and hiring. Claims that women scientists suffer discrimination in these arenas rest…
