Elephant Bones Suggest Neanderthals Gathered in Large Groups – Archaeologyon February 14, 2023 at 4:38 pm THE ANOMALIST

More recent discoveries dramatically impacting our dynamic understanding of the remote human past, beginning with this report that suggests coordinated sizeable-group predation of Straight-tusked Elephants in what's now Germany 125,000 years ago. And those hominins shared our modern love for dining on "Surf" along with the "Turf," as Neanderthals Enjoyed Seaside Crab Roasts in Portugal about 90,000 years ago. Like the first article, this short Archaeology piece references additional "courses" if you find this to your taste. On the opposite side of the globe and much more recently, Early Human Migration to Americas Linked to Climate Change, headlines Oregon State University researchers. Sediment coring and modern "ocean modeling" support an earlier entry into the Western Hemisphere than do much of the evidence and the "traditional" view of the populating of the Americas. That "prior ingress" case is perhaps strengthened by the report that a 13,900-Year-Old Bone Projectile Point From Washington Identified. It's another Archaeology article that the Elephantimorpha group won't like. And Native Americans Were Mining Copper 6,000 Years Ago. Kambiz Kamrani's article indicates a mind-blowing "5,000 copper mines that date to at least 3,500 BCE" on the south side of Lake Superior. As with our 125,000 BP German Neanderthal lead article, this shows that hunter-gatherer societies could indeed coordinate truly large-scale activities much earlier than previously acknowledged.
