Clyde Snow, a Sleuth Who Read Bones From King Tut’s to Kennedy’s, Is Dead at 86

by Ed Hagen last modified May 17, 2014 01:06 PM

With ghoulish geniality, Clyde Snow liked to say that bones made good witnesses, never lying, never forgetting, and that a skeleton, no matter how old, could sketch the tale of a human life, revealing how it had been lived, how long it had lasted, what traumas it had endured and especially how it had ended.

Symposium: The African Human Fossil Record

Symposium: The African Human Fossil Record

by Ed Hagen last modified Apr 04, 2014 03:59 PM

Since 90 years now, when a nonhuman representative of the hominin lineage was firstly discovered at Taung, in South Africa, we know that Darwin’s prediction of an African emergence of the genus Homo was correct. Since, following the discovery in 1960s of the “early Man” at Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania, the human fossil record from African localities chronologically covering nearly the last 2.5 million years has remarkably increased in raw amount and preservation quality of the paleontological and cultural assemblages, anatomical diversity, morphodimensional variation, sex- and age-related individual representativeness of the remains, resolution of the reconstructed geochronological, paleoenvironmental, paleoecological and technocultural contexts.

Human Evolution: brain, birthweight and the immune system

by Ed Hagen last modified Mar 11, 2014 10:41 PM

June 9-10, 2014, The Royal Society, London: The complexity of the human brain is unique. However, the large size at birth poses risks to mother and offspring due to constraints on pelvic architecture imposed by bipedalism. This tension will be explored in the light of new concepts in the relationships between evolution of the brain, the placenta, the immune system at the maternal-fetal interface, and genomic imprinting.

MAY 28 TO JUNE 1, 2014. DUKE UNIVERSITY. Phylogenetic approaches are increasingly important across evolutionary anthropology, including research on behavior, material culture, functional morphology, linguistics, the fossil record, genetics, and the conservation of cultural and biological diversity. By using phylogenetic methods, it is possible to investigate correlated evolutionary change, to identify the factors that influence speciation and extinction rates, and to reconstruct ancestral states.
