Inside the Chauvet grotto, they found a metre long network of galleries and rooms, covered in rock art and petroglyphs, whose floor was littered with a variety of paleontological remains, including the skulls of bears and two wolves. Some of these bones had been arranged in special position by the previous human inhabitants. Amazingly, Chauvet’s entire labyrinth of prehistoric art had been left undisturbed since a landslide sealed off the entrance about 25, years ago. How Old are the Cave Paintings at Chauvet? Chauvet is one of the few prehistoric painted caves to be found preserved and intact, right down to the footprints of animals and humans. As a result it ranks alongside Lascaux c. Moreover, its earliest rock art charcoal drawings of two rhinos and one bison have been dated to between 30, and 32, BP before present. This means that these images were created roughly , BCE, making them the third oldest figurative cave paintings in the world, after the Sulawesi animal pictures in Indonesia and the more primitive Fumane cave paintings c. Although Chauvet does not boast the type of polychrome painting visible at Lascaux or Altamira, this is more than offset by the sheer originality, diversity and preserved quality of its art. According to the French Ministry of Culture in Paris, the antiquity of Chauvet’s cave art has radically altered previous theories concerning the artistic development of Paleolithic Man, and demonstrate that Homo sapiens learnt to draw at a very early stage.
It boasted technological advances such as independent front suspension and an overhead cam engine. By , factory air conditioning was available. The Wagoneer was always a high-priced luxury off-roader. In the early years, the Wagoneer was offered as a two-door, four-door, or panel wagon.
SUDAN, the last male northern white rhino, has died in Kenya at the age of 45, after becoming a symbol of efforts to save his subspecies from extinction, a fate that only science can now prevent.
Discovery[ edit ] comparison with a human The first recorded Diprotodon remains were discovered in a cave near Wellington in New South Wales in the early s by Major Thomas Mitchell who sent them to England for study by Sir Richard Owen. In the s Ludwig Leichhardt discovered many Diprotodon bones eroding from the banks of creeks in the Darling Downs of Queensland and when reporting the find to Owen commented that the remains were so well preserved he expected to find living examples in the then-unexplored central regions of Australia.
The majority of fossil finds are of demographic groups indicative of diprotodonts dying in drought conditions. For example, hundreds of individuals were found in Lake Callabonna with well-preserved lower bodies but crushed and distorted heads. Other finds consist of age groupings of young or old animals which are first to die during a drought. In , a significant group of about 40 was found at Eulo , South-West Queensland.

From Nature magazine The carbon clock is getting reset. Climate records from a Japanese lake are set to improve the accuracy of the dating technique, which could help to shed light on archaeological mysteries such as why Neanderthals became extinct. Carbon dating is used to work out the age of organic material — in effect, any living thing. The technique hinges on carbon , a radioactive isotope of the element that, unlike other more stable forms of carbon, decays away at a steady rate.
Organisms capture a certain amount of carbon from the atmosphere when they are alive. By measuring the ratio of the radio isotope to non-radioactive carbon, the amount of carbon decay can be worked out, thereby giving an age for the specimen in question.
He said that the award was a great chance to bring to light the issues facing the environment at the hands of humans.

It’s not a good time for them and they’re working harder than ever. I was in the Democratic Republic of the Congo reporting on the war and I was in the right place at the right time to photograph some mountain gorillas. I wanted to come back to that now because it’s accelerated. The wildlife space is relatively unknown.

Sudan, who was 45, lived at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya. He was put to sleep on Monday after age-related complications worsened significantly. His death leaves only two females – his daughter and granddaughter – of the subspecies alive in the world.
It may sound unbelievable, but thanks to the newly developed techniques even Sudan could still have an offspring. Rhinoceroses – of which there are five species – are the second-largest land mammal after elephants. The white rhinoceros consists of two sub-species: Sudan, who was the equivalent of 90 in human years, was the last surviving male of the rarer variety after the natural death of a second male in late The subspecies’ population in Uganda, Central African Republic, Sudan and Chad was largely wiped out during the poaching crisis of the s and s.
Poaching was fuelled by demand for rhino horn for use in traditional Chinese medicine, and for dagger handles in Yemen.

This blows away the old models of online adult entertainment. It is miles far advanced of the old pre-canned, preformatted, and pre-concluded types of entertainment. The script is already set, the story and the narratives are already set in stone, and your only job is really to react or not react.

in fact, the cave that is the subject of this excellent documentary by Werner Herzog, contains the oldest cave paintings yet discovered, dating from approximately 32, years ago, twice as old as any other cave paintings yet discovered.
Taxonomy[ edit ] The “Moscow mandible”, holotype of E. The molars, the only teeth in the jaw, had formed in layers like tree rings, except the “rings”, or lamellae, were highly corrugated. The edges in the grinding surface were elaborately sinuous to better break down the grasses on which the animal fed. In March , the discovery of a skull in Kazakhstan granted a new estimated time period to when Elasmotherium roamed the Earth.
The prior estimate was , years ago, now being reduced to 29, years ago. For example, Kazakhstan alone has 30 sites of E. The division into species is based mainly on the fine distinctions of the teeth and jaws and the shape of the skull. Species[ edit ] First published restoration of E. Elasmotherium is thought to be the most derived genus of elasmothere, with E. However, an elasmotherian species turned up in the preceding Khaprovian or Khaprov Faunal Complex, which was at first taken to be E.

Nathaniel Dominy Early Human Ancestors May Have Walked AND Climbed for a Living Africa 31 December The results of recently conducted field studies on modern human groups in the Philippines and Africa are suggesting that humans, among the primates, are not so unique to walking upright as previously thought.
The findings have implications for some of our earliest possible ancestors, including the 3. Associate professor of anthropology Nathaniel Dominy of Dartmouth College, along with colleagues Vivek Venkataraman and Thomas Kraft, compared African Twa hunter-gatherers to agriculturalists living nearby, the Bakiga, in Uganda.
