2013 – A Year of Discoveries and Advancing Knowledge

This past year has been an exciting one in the world of biological anthropology/paleoanthropology. New fossils have been found and there have been new insights into human evolution thanks to genetics. I think as more of these discoveries are made our way of thinking needs to expand and become more flexible.

Here’s and article from the BBC covering some of the finds from this year. The writer, Dr Clive Finlayson, also offers some points of change in our way of thinking – and I think he’s right, or at least they’re good areas to start with. I hope 2014 can bring us even more exciting a things which help us to increase our knowledge and build on our picture of human evolution.

Happy New Year everyone!
