Discovery[ edit ] Dorothy Garrod centre discovered the Natufian culture in The Natufian culture was discovered by British archaeologist Dorothy Garrod during her excavations of Shuqba cave in the Judaean Hills. She discovered a layer sandwiched between the Upper Palaeolithic and Bronze Age deposits characterised by the presence of microliths. She identified this with the Mesolithic , a transitional period between the Palaeolithic and the Neolithic which was well-represented in Europe but had not yet been found in the Near East.

A year later, when she discovered similar material at el-Wad Terrace , Garrod suggested the name the Natufian culture, after the Wadi an-Natuf that ran close to Shuqba. As early as , both Garrod and Neuville drew attention to the presence of stone sickles in Natufian assemblages and the possibility that this represented very early agriculture. The Levant hosts more than a hundred kinds of cereals, fruits, nuts, and other edible parts of plants, and the flora of the Levant during the Natufian period was not the dry, barren, and thorny landscape of today, but rather woodland.

It is generally seen as a successor, which evolved out of elements within that preceding culture. There were also other industries in the region, such as the Mushabian culture of the Negev and Sinai , which are sometimes distinguished from the Kebaran or believed to have been involved in the evolution of the Natufian. More generally there has been discussion of the similarities of these cultures with those found in coastal North Africa. Graeme Barker notes there are: Loring Brace cross-analysed the craniometric traits of Natufian specimens with those of various ancient and modern groups from the Near East, Africa and Europe.

What do they have in common? The exhibition chronicles the interaction between capitalism and democracy, and features the progress of American agriculture. The exhibition will explore the massive change in farming practices brought about by the innovation of lightweight, mass-produced tractors. Replacing a sleek, silver Tucker automobile at the entrance of the American Enterprise exhibit will be a Waterloo Boy Tractor owned by the museum.

Displayed with historic images and advertisements, the Waterloo Boy represents a significant transition to mechanization, as farmers began to adopt one- and two-bottom tractor plows fueled by gasoline and kerosene after The popular program will feature a conversation about past and present mechanization on the family farm with agricultural historians and farmers.

Its effects were felt in virtually all corners of the world, and it is one of the great economic calamities in history. In previous depressions, such as those of the s and s, real per capita gross domestic product GDP —the sum of all goods and services produced, weighted by market prices and adjusted for inflation—had returned to its original level within five years.

Economic activity began to decline in the summer of , and by real GDP fell more than 25 percent, erasing all of the economic growth of the previous quarter century. Industrial production was especially hard hit, falling some 50 percent. By comparison, industrial production had fallen 7 percent in the s and 13 percent in the s. From the depths of depression in , the economy recovered until This expansion was followed by a brief but severe recession, and then another period of economic growth.

It was not until the s that previous levels of output were surpassed. This led some to wonder how long the depression would have continued without the advent of World War II. In the absence of government statistics, scholars have had to estimate unemployment rates for the s. The sharp drop in GDP and the anecdotal evidence of millions of people standing in soup lines or wandering the land as hoboes suggest that these rates were unusually high.

So suggests new research that tracked changes in two genes thought to help regulate brain growth, changes that appeared well after the rise of modern humans , years ago. That the defining feature of humans — our large brains — continued to evolve as recently as 5, years ago, and may be doing so today, promises to surprise the average person, if not biologists.

Lahn and colleagues examined two genes, named microcephalin and ASPM, that are connected to brain size. If those genes don’t work, babies are born with severely small brains, called microcephaly. Using DNA samples from ethnically diverse populations, they identified a collection of variations in each gene that occurred with unusually high frequency.

In fact, the variations were so common they couldn’t be accidental mutations but instead were probably due to natural selection, where genetic changes that are favorable to a species quickly gain a foothold and begin to spread, the researchers report.

History Native Oaxaca criollo avocados, the ancestral form of today’s domesticated varieties Persea americana, or the avocado, is possibly thought to have originated in the Tehuacan Valley [6] in the state of Puebla , Mexico, [7] although fossil evidence suggests similar species were much more widespread millions of years ago. However, there is evidence for three possible separate domestications of the avocado, resulting in the currently recognized Mexican aoacatl , Guatemalan quilaoacatl , and West Indian tlacacolaocatl landraces.

This evidence was found in an earth mound intended to be a ceremonial structure called Huaca Prieta , kilometers north of Lima , Peru. The earliest residents were living in temporary camps in an ancient wetland eating avocados, chilies, mollusks, sharks, birds, and sea lions. The plant was introduced to Spain in , Indonesia around , Mauritius in , Brazil in , the United States mainland in , South Africa and Australia in the late 19th century, and Israel in In , the California Avocado Association introduced the then-innovative term avocado to refer to the plant.

The results are from the ensemble member that shows the response that is most consistent with the isotopic observations Fig. Of particular interest are the ungulate herds, with osteological studies of animal remains showing i a reduction of cattle herd sizes accompanied by an increase in caprine herd sizes in TP-O and ii an increase in the degree of bone fragmentation for small and large ungulate grease and marrow-bearing parts from TP-O onward Fig.

An increased number of slice marks associated with each butchering incidence was revealed in TP-O for both cattle and caprines, showing a marked increase in butchering efficiency and meat processing Skeletal evidence for malnutrition has also been observed in domesticated cattle from this level

Unfortunately there are no surviving copies of his journal ‘Peritou Okeanou’ About the Ocean but later classical writers have quoted his work and they provide us with the earliest written account of Britain: He saw plenty of corn in the fields in the south-east but also noted the gradual disappearance of various kinds of grain as one advanced towards the north Strabo also repeated what Pytheas reported from Thule which he said was bordering on the frozen zone perhaps the Shetlands: Threshing floors being useless on account of the rain and want of sun.

Thule was also described as being: When they had corn and honey they made drink of them. In some areas small granaries were raised above the ground on four posts but underground pits were more commonly used to store the surpluses of grain. These underground pits were timber-lined and their excavation, at places like Danebury Iron Age Fort, has revealed that offerings to the gods were placed at the bottom of the pits before harvest and possibly after a good harvest.

Religion and farming were closely linked in Iron Age Britain. The classical author, Diodorus Siculus, was probably quoting the earlier writer, Posidonius, when he stated: In reaping their wheat they cut off the ears from the stalk, and house them in pits under ground; then they take and pluck out the grains of just enough of the oldest of them to last for the day, and after they have bruised the wheat make it into bread.

The larger East Mound ca. By analyzing proteins from residues in ancient pots and jars excavated from the site, the researchers found evidence of foods that were eaten there. Although previous studies have looked at pot residues from the site, this was the first to use proteins, which can be used to identify plants and animals more specifically. Using this new approach, the team determined that vessels from this early farming site in central Anatolia, in what is now Turkey, contained cereals, legumes, dairy products and meat.

In some cases, the researchers could narrow down food items to specific species. The site showcases a fascinating layout in which houses were built directly next to each other in every direction, and stands out for its excellent preservation of finds. After over 25 years of excavation and analysis, it is considered one of the best-researched early farming sites in the Old World.

Whether this cultural adaptation was driven by migration or diffusion remains widely debated. To gather evidence for contact and movement in the CWC material culture, grog-tempered CWC pots from 24 archaeological sites in southern Baltoscandia Estonia and the southern regions of Finland and Sweden were sampled for geochemical and micro-structural analyses. Scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive spectrometry SEM-EDS and particle-induced X-ray emission PIXE were used for geochemical discrimination of the ceramic fabrics to identify regional CWC pottery-manufacturing traditions and ceramic exchange.

Major and minor element concentrations in the ceramic body matrices of individual vessels and grog temper crushed pottery present in the ceramic fabrics were measured by SEM-EDS. Furthermore, the high-sensitivity PIXE technique was applied for group confirmation.

Neolithic and Mesolithic samples analyzed Uniparental Genetic Systems The mtDNA haplogroups of all five Neolithic individuals are typical of those found in central European Neolithic farmers and modern Europeans, but not in European Mesolithic hunter-gatherers 1. The mitochondrial haplogroups of two additional less well-preserved Greek Mesolithic individuals Theo1, Theo5; SI Appendix, Table S6 belong to lineages observed in Neolithic farmers from across Europe; consistent with Aegean Neolithic populations, unlike central European Neolithic populations, being the direct descendants of the preceding Mesolithic peoples who inhabited broadly the same region.

However, we caution against over-interpretation of the Aegean Mesolithic mtDNA data; additional genome-level data will be required to identify the Mesolithic source population s of the early Aegean farmers. Functional Variation Sequences in and around genes underlying the phenotypes hypothesized to have undergone positive selection in Europeans indicate that the Neolithic Aegeans were unlikely to have been lactase persistent but carried derived SLC24A5 rs and SLC45A2 rs alleles associated with reduced skin pigmentation.

However, despite their relatively low latitude, four of the Aegean individuals are homozygous for the derived rs T-allele in the SLC24A5 gene, and four carry at least one copy of the derived rs G-allele in the SLC45A2 gene. This suggests that these reduced-pigmentation—associated alleles were at appreciable frequency in Neolithic Aegeans and that skin depigmentation was not solely a high-latitude phenomenon SI Appendix, SI
