Archaeology and age of a new hominin from Flores in eastern Indonesia
TLDR
Dating by radiocarbon, luminescence, uranium-series and electron spin resonance methods indicates that H. floresiensis existed from before 38,000 years ago (kyr) until at least 18 kyr, and originated from an early dispersal of Homo erectus that reached Flores and then survived on this island refuge until relatively recently.
Further evidence for small-bodied hominins from the Late Pleistocene of Flores, Indonesia
TLDR
Additional H. floresiensis remains excavated from the cave in 2004 are described, demonstrating that LB1 is not just an aberrant or pathological individual, but is representative of a long-term population that was present during the interval 95–74 to 12 thousand years ago.
Revised stratigraphy and chronology for Homo floresiensis at Liang Bua in Indonesia
TLDR
New stratigraphic and chronological evidence from Liang Bua is reported that does not support the ages inferred previously for the H. floresiensis holotype, or the time of last appearance of this species.
Anatomically modern human in Southeast Asia (Laos) by 46 ka
TLDR
In the context of an increasingly documented archaic–modern morphological mosaic among the earliest modern humans in western Eurasia, Tam Pa Ling establishes a definitively modern population in Southeast Asia at ∼50 ka cal BP, which provides the earliest skeletal evidence for fullymodern humans in mainland Southeast Asia.
Mammalian responses to Pleistocene climate change in southeastern Australia
Resolving faunal responses to Pleistocene climate change is vital for differentiating human impacts from other drivers of ecological change. While 90% of Australia's large mammals were extinct by ca.
