Archaeology and age of a new hominin from Flores in eastern Indonesia
Excavations at Liang Bua, a large limestone cave on the island of Flores in eastern Indonesia, have yielded evidence for a population of tiny hominins, sufficiently distinct anatomically to beExpand

The 'human revolution' in lowland tropical Southeast Asia: the antiquity and behavior of anatomically modern humans at Niah Cave (Sarawak, Borneo).
Recent research in Europe, Africa, and Southeast Asia suggests that we can no longer assume a direct and exclusive link between anatomically modern humans and behavioral modernity (the 'humanExpand

Continental-scale temperature variability during the past two millennia
Past global climate changes had strong regional expression. To elucidate their spatio-temporal pattern, we reconstructed past temperatures for seven continental-scale regions during the past one toExpand

Radiocarbon dating of old charcoal using a wet oxidation, stepped-combustion procedure
We present results that validate a new wet oxidation, stepped-combustion procedure for dating "old" charcoal samples. An acid-base-wet oxidation (ABOX) pretreatment procedure has been developed thatExpand

Early Human Occupation at Devil's Lair, Southwestern Australia 50,000 Years Ago
Abstract New dating confirms that people occupied the Australian continent before the earliest time inferred from conventional radiocarbon analysis. Many of the new ages were obtained by acceleratorExpand

Millennial and orbital variations of El Niño/Southern Oscillation and high-latitude climate in the last glacial period
The El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phenomenon is believed to have operated continuously over the last glacial–interglacial cycle. ENSO variability has been suggested to be linked toExpand

Construction of a 1961-1990 European climatology for climate change modelling and impact applications
A 1961–1990 mean monthly climatology for a ‘greater European’ region extending from 32°W to 66°E and from 25° to 81°N has been constructed at a resolution of 0.5°latitude by 0.5° longitude for aExpand

Synchronisation of palaeoenvironmental records over the last 60,000 years, and an extended INTIMATE event stratigraphy to 48,000 b2k
The INTIMATE protocol for the correlation of marine ice core and terrestrial records is here updated, reflecting recent developments in palaeoclimate research. Originally focussed on Last Glacial toExpand

The Aftermath of Megafaunal Extinction: Ecosystem Transformation in Pleistocene Australia
Human Impact? Following the arrival of humans in Australia 40- to 50,000 years ago, many species of large vertebrates rapidly became extinct. By analyzing sediment cores from a site in northeasternExpand

SELECTION AND TREATMENT OF DATA FOR RADIOCARBON CALIBRATION: AN UPDATE TO THE INTERNATIONAL CALIBRATION (INTCAL) CRITERIA
High-quality data from appropriate archives are needed for the continuing improvement of radiocarbon cali- bration curves. We discuss here the basic assumptions behind 14C dating that necessitateExpand
