EARLY HOMINIDS
================================================================
An overviewish sort of thing on recent developments in hominid evolution studies:

http://phys.org/news/2015-04-stonesgetting-human-genus.html

Suggestion that Neanderthals’ demise is linked to inability to harness fire:

http://www.livescience.com/50532-neanderthals-died-no-fire.html
http://news.discovery.com/human/life/were-neanderthals-doomed-by-lack-of-fire-mastery-150420
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3050984/Did-Neanderthals-die-couldn-t-master-fire-Cooking-food-given-modern-humans-edge.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490

… and then there’s something about a tooth, but I’m not sure how it’s connected to Neanderthal demise:

http://phys.org/news/2015-04-deciphering-demise-neandertals.html
http://news.discovery.com/human/evolution/teeth-suggest-humans-played-role-in-neanderthal-extinction-150423.htm
http://www.pasthorizonspr.com/index.php/archives/04/2015/deciphering-the-demise-of-neanderthals

… or maybe it has to do with dogs:

http://www.pri.org/stories/2015-04-23/man-s-best-friend-may-have-been-neanderthal-s-downfall

In other Neanderthal news, they apparently shared their caves with assorted wild beasties:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3052477/Did-Neanderthals-live-BADGERS-bears-Human-cousins-appear-shared-caves-carnivores.html

… or the other spin is on the find of some juvenile Neanderthal fossils:

EXPLORATOR is a free weekly newsletter bringing you the latest
news of archaeological finds, historical research and the like.
Various on-line news and magazine sources are scoured for news of
the ‘ancient world’ (broadly construed: practically anything relating
to archaeology or history up to World War II or so is fair
game) and every Sunday they are delivered to your mailbox free of
charge!
