A study of rat body sizes shifting over time gives a glimpse into the habitat of the mysterious hominin Homo floresiensis -- nicknamed the 'Hobbit' due to its diminutive ... read more

From Stone Age Chips to Microchips: How Tiny Tools May Have Made Us Human

Anthropologists have long made the case that tool-making is one of the key behaviors that separated our human ancestors from other primates. A new article, however, argues that it was not tool-making ... read more

Horseshoe Crabs Are Really Relatives of Spiders, Scorpions

For thousands of years brewers made beer using specialized strains of the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. A new study shows that modern brewing strains were derived from a mixture of European ... read more

New Findings Shed Light on Origin of Upright Walking in Human Ancestors

The oldest distinguishing feature between humans and our ape cousins is our ability to walk on two legs - a trait known as bipedalism. Among mammals, only humans and our ancestors perform this ... read more

Neanderthals Walked Upright Just Like the Humans of Today

Neanderthals are often depicted as having straight spines and poor posture. However, these prehistoric humans were more similar to us than many assume. Researchers have shown that Neanderthals walked ... read more

A much debated ancient human skull from Mongolia has been dated and genetically analyzed, showing that it is the earliest modern human yet found in the region, according to new ... read more

Humans Colonized Diverse Environments in Southeast Asia and Oceania During the Pleistocene

Investigations into what it means to be human have often focused on attempts to uncover the earliest material traces of 'art', 'language', or technological 'complexity'. ... read more

Human Mutation Rate Has Slowed Recently

Researchers have discovered that the human mutation rate is significantly slower than for our closest primate relatives. The new knowledge may be important for estimates of when the common ancestor ... read more

A Surprisingly Early Replacement of Neanderthals by Modern Humans in Southern Spain

A new study of Bajondillo Cave (Málaga, Spain) reveals that modern humans replaced Neanderthals at this site approximately 44,000 years ago. The research shows that the replacement of Neanderthals ... read more
