Excavations in the Acheulean Levels at the Earlier Stone Age Site of Canteen Koppie, Northern Province, South Africa
The fluvial gravels of the river Vaal in South Africa have long been known as a source for Earlier Stone Age (ESA) artefacts. Most were discovered through the open cast mining for diamonds that has


The archaeology of Sterkfontein—past and present
New research on the stone tool bearing deposits at the Plio-Pleistocene hominid site of Sterkfontein (South Africa) demonstrates the complexity of Member 5, which is now shown to include at least
Numerical ages for Plio-Pleistocene glacial sediment sequences by 26Al/10Be dating of quartz in buried paleosols
On a timescale for the past million years of human history in central South Africa : research article
Located between Danielskuil and Kuruman in the Northern Cape province of South Africa is Wonderwerk Cave, where excavations from 1978 to 1996 revealed a ~6-m depth of deposits made up of nine
Dating Plio-Pleistocene glacial sediments using the cosmic-ray-produced radionuclides 10Be and 26Al
We use the cosmic-ray-produced radionuclides 2 6 Al and 1 0 Be to date Plio-Pleistocene glacial sediment sequences. These two nuclides are produced in quartz at a fixed ratio, but have different
Acheulian settlement along the Lower Vaal river, South Africa
U-Pb Isotopic Age of the StW 573 Hominid from Sterkfontein, South Africa
Measurements on speleothems immediately above and below the fossil remains, corrected for initial 234U disequilibrium, yield an age for StW 573 of close to 2.2 Ma, compatible with a faunal age range of 4 to 2 Ma.
The first hominin of Europe
The discovery of a human mandible associated with an assemblage of Mode 1 lithic tools and faunal remains bearing traces of hominin processing in stratigraphic level TE9 at the site of the Sima del Elefante, Atapuerca, Spain emerges as the oldest, most accurately dated record of human occupation in Europe, to the authors' knowledge.
