Find here websites of any kind on any aspect of the admittedly broad field of Anthropology. Pictured: a replica (from the Museo Nacional de Antropología in Mexico City, Mexico -- one of many replicas to be found in museums worldwide) of the skeleton of Lucy, who, according to an unbylined Reuters article dated February 10, 2009, having been "found in Ethiopia in 1974, is the best-preserved example of Australopithecus afarensis, a species of pre-human."

After moving house and finally getting the broadband reconnected, I managed to update - 07/05/2013
After moving house and finally getting the broadband reconnected, I managed to update my blog. During my enforced break from blogging among the sea of cardboard boxes some archaeological news have reached us. On one hand the University of Leicester is to continue the study of the Greyfriars in order to study some other graves under the car park and on the other a Durham student has found a head of a statue from a Roman shrine. However, the biggest news during the last two weeks has been the demise of Mick Aston. Mick Aston (centre) with his Time Team colleagues I did meet Mick Aston personally several times at Bristol when I was studying for my MA in Landscape Archaeology. When I arrived to England, I was totally ignorant of Time Team , since it had not travelled to the Continent, yet. I was wondering the knowledge of geophysics my fellow English students seemed to have. I only understood after viewing the programme. Since I did not take part into Time Team, I only met Mick in some departmental functions and trips that were part Krogman 1962:86). Hrdlicka (1939 cited in Krogman 1962:86) stated that endocranial suture closure was only reliable within ten years on either side of the predicted age. Cobb (1952:840 cited in Krogman 1962:86), using the Todd and Lyon methodology, stated suture closure was only reliable within nine years on either side of the predicted age. In 1953, R. Singer concluded that using cranial sutures as an estimation of age at death was an unreliable assessment methodology (Krogman 1962:86). He found that there is a tendency for the cranial sutures, of both females and males, to either remain open throughout life or to close much earlier than predicted by Todd’s method (Singer 1953:56). Brooks In 1948, S. Brooks, at the suggestion of Dr. McCown of the University of California, begun an inquiry into why samples of aboriginal California Indians showed a mean age at death consistently under 30 years (Brooks 1955:568). The method employed attempted to employ Todd’s methods of age determination, using both cranial suture closure and changes to the pubic symphysis, to see if they were applicable to races other than white and negro, and to determine the correlation of these two methods when applied to one individual (Brooks 1955:568). However, Brooks (1955:571) attempted to examine the cranial sutures and pubic...
