Earliest known Oldowan artifacts at >2.58 Ma from Ledi-Geraru, Ethiopia, highlight early technological diversity
A substantial assemblage of systematically flaked stone tools excavated in situ from a stratigraphically constrained context at LG bracketed between 2.61 and 2.58 Ma suggests that hominin technology is distinctly different from generalized tool use that may be a shared feature of much of the primate lineage.

This review highlights not only what one can find in ideal preservation conditions but also what type of indirect alteration proxies can be expected to survive in the archaeological record.
Initial Upper Palaeolithic Homo sapiens from Bacho Kiro Cave, Bulgaria
Direct dates for human remains found in association with Initial Upper Palaeolithic artefacts at Bacho Kiro Cave (Bulgaria) demonstrate the presence of Homo sapiens in the mid-latitudes of Europe before 45 thousand years ago.
Embedded Behavior: Human Activities and the Construction of the Mesolithic Shellmound of Cabeço da Amoreira, Muge, Portugal
Shellmound formation processes are greatly influenced by human inputs associated with an intensive exploitation of marine and estuarine resources. The complex stratigraphy of shellmounds has been…
Why does (archaeological) micromorphology have such little traction in (geo)archaeology?
Archaeological deposits are often complex and illustrative of an intricate interplay between geogenic and anthropogenic inputs and formation processes. Even for those archaeologists—particularly…
