Archeology 201 Guidelines

If Indiana Jones happened to be a member of Tweb, this is where he'd hang out.

Welcome to the Archeology forum. Were you out doing some gardening and dug up a relic from the distant past? would you like to know more about Ancient Egypt? Did you think Memphis was actually a city in Tennessee?

Well, for the answers to those and other burning questions you've found the right digs.

Our forum rules apply here too, if you haven't read them now is the time.

    In any case it would still be a good idea for you to explain why you think it is controversial
    In the past part of the line between human and other related species and sub-species was the ability graphically represent and communicate their ideas, ie art work. If these are Neanderthal graphic illustrations this would blur the line of our species with our ancestors and other related sub-species and species.

    I share this view that lines between related species and sub-species is not as clear as some would think. I believe the process of evolution is more a continuum over time and place and not specific species somehow evolve to one or more species.

    Yes because scientists typically communicate that there method is controversial in their own paper.

    Document how controversial. After reviewing the publication and data I do not believe any scientists find this method controversial.

    That's affirm.

    I still think it is a real stretch to say that it is art.

    Groundbreaking research published Thursday in Science throws a wrench into all that. In the paper, an international team of scientists, discovering that cave paintings in three sites across Spain are collectively between 64,000 and 66,000 years old, report that there’s no way those cave paintings could have been made by early Homo sapiens. At that time, there was only one species of hominin living in Spain that could have made this art — not humans, who arrived 40,000 years ago, but the Neanderthals.
