A spatially explicit model of the expansion of anatomically modern humans is developed and climate reconstructions over the past 120 ky based on the Hadley Centre global climate model HadCM3 are used to quantify the possible effects of climate on human demography.
Global Geometric Morphometric Analyses of the Human Pelvis Reveal Substantial Neutral Population History Effects, Even across Sexes
It is demonstrated that at a global level, the shape of the os coxae reveals substantial evidence for neutral variation, which indicates that population variation in the human pelvis might be used to address important questions concerning population history, just as the human cranium has done.
On questions surrounding the Acheulean ‘tradition’
Abstract The Acheulean, sometimes known as ‘the great handaxe tradition’, is the longest-lasting entity in the human cultural record. The oldest sites are in Africa at around 1.6 million years ago…

Human Pelvis and Long Bones Reveal Differential Preservation of Ancient Population History and Migration Out of Africa
The finding that pelvic variation exhibits the neutral effects of demographic history suggests that consideration of this skeletal element might be used to shed light on factors of human population history, just as the cranium has done.
The Movius Line controversy: the state of the debate
Abstract Patterns of Palaeolithic variability between eastern Asia and western portions of the Old World continue to engender controversial discussion. Most famously, debate has focused on…

For many years, intuition and common sense often guided the transference of patterning ostensibly evident in experimental flintknapping results to interpretations of the archaeological record, with…
