Cultural Innovations in the Middle and Later Stone Age of East Africa: Panga Ya Saïdi, Kenya - Preliminary results

Our knowledge of the cultural innovations associated with the Middle Stone Age (MSA) and the Later Stone Age (LSA) in Africa has significantly increased over the last twenty years, mainly thanks to the excavations carried out in Southern Africa and Morocco. We do not have information of the same quality for Eastern Africa. The archaeological cave site of Panga Ya Saïdi (PYS), in Kenya, offers a great opportunity to address this issue. I will present preliminary results of a joint, multi-authored study of beads, bone tools, engraved bones, and pigment lumps recovered during recent excavation at PYS, and discuss their significance for the emergence and evolution of new cultural practices within the MSA and the LSA of this region.

Distinguished Lecture by Dr. María Martinón-Torres - "The Evolution of Homo sapiens: Asian Perspectives"

Recent discoveries have prompted the necessity to reconsider the weight that Asia may have played in the evolution of modern humans. Simple and linear models to explain the origin and dispersals of H. sapiens seem to be progressively outdated by the new paleoanthropological and archaeological sites. Here I present a general overview of some key fossil samples that place modern humans outside Africa close to 100,000 years ago, increasing the time of overlap with other archaic hominins and posing new questions about the time and pattern of H. sapiens expansion into Asia. Hosts: Michael Petraglia and Nicole Boivin, Department of Archaeology [mehr]
