francyyponta Ivory statuette. this small sculpture represents a small carnivore, tentatively identified as a wolverine. Although there is no stratigraphic context, the archaeologists place it in the Lower Magdalenian (18.000-11.000 BP). This is the only known example of these stylistic objects in Spain's and it's one of the few sculptures in the round ever documented ib the corpus of Iberian Palaeolithic portable art.
fugurina in avorio di pochi centimetri. Rappresenta un puccolo carnivoro, forse un "ghiottone". anche se non e' stato trovato all'interno di una stratigrafia archeologica, viene datato dagli archeologi all'ultima fase del Paleolitico Superiore (il magdaleniano 18.000-11.000 anni fa).
E' l'unico esempio conosciuto in Spagna di quesra tipologia. e' particolarmente significativi perche' e' uno dei pochi esempi di "arte portatile" a tutto tondo per l'epoca del Paleolitico nella penisola iberica. #madrid #museoarqueologico #museoarqueologicomadrid #museoarqueologiconacional #igersmadrid #arkeologi #archaeology #archeologia #archeoblogger #prehistory #preistoria #wolverine

Earlybird Universitetet i Bergen
unibergen Say hello to Paranthropus robustus, a distant relative of ours who lived in Southern Africa ca. 1.8-1.2 million years ago. Paranthropus robustus had large teeth as well as a ridge on top of the skull, where strong chewing muscles were attached.

There have not found any stone tools associated with Paranthropus robustus fossils, yet it is probable that these early humans used bones as tools to dig in termite mounds.

This photo is taken from the Museum exhibition at Maropeng - cradle of human kind visitor center, Johannesburg. I was there as part of an excursion while attending the 14th Congress of the Pan African Archaeological Association at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg.
