Current Hot Topics in Palaeoanthropology

One topic that seems to be causing quite a stir in the anthropological blogosphere is that of Zeresenay Alemseged and the Selam a.k.a. Dikika fossil. Selam is a 3.3 million year old Australopithecus afarensis child. Remote Central and Anthropology.net both provide interesting and thorough discussions of the video clip, as well as the context in which it is set.

In addition, you might also want to take a look at the review of ‘Dmanisi’s Paleoanthropological Importance‘ at Anthropology.net, which discusses the importance of the site, and the human fossils which have come from it, in light of an anticipated new study to be published in Nature in the next day or so.
