Four Stone Hearth Volume #76

Welcome to volume # 76 of the Four Stone Hearth. There are some interesting items in this issue, so let’s get started.

Greg Laden has an interesting post on culture called Primitive Cultures are Simple, Civilization is Complex (A falsehood) I – a subject he returns to in Primitive Cultures are Simple, Civilization is Complex (A falsehood) II.

dlende adds to the fun with a discussion of Nature/Nurture: Slash To The Rescue

Anne Buchanan discusses gender, genotype, and cultural interpretations of cheating inOut of the Running?

Over at Middle Savagery you will find Çatalhöyük in Second Life, Fall 2009.

Also, dlende discusses a recent PLoS One article in Gravlee et al: Race, Genetics, Social Inequality, and Health

Primate Diaries has An Anthropologist in District 9.

Tim Jone provides us with a discussion of Neanderthal Hearths at El Salt Reveal Plant And Fish Remains. I’ve always found it interesting how behavior gets reinterpreted once a Neanderthal performs it. First, only modern humans ate fish and seafood, but when evidence indicated Neanderthals did as well the situation got reinterpreted. Based on this article we will probably see yet another.

Alun asks a really fascinating question in Crowdsourcing Fieldwork: A Neuroarchaeology Project? – does lighting make a difference? I would love to know the answer to this.

Speaking of, Zinjanthropus talks about color (or colour for the British readers) vision in Giving male monkeys color vision.

Raymond Ho discuses When is a Monkey really a Monkey?.

Julien Riel-Salvatore discusses those honkorous bifaces discovered recently in Two Sides to Every Biface

Hawks talks about mice in Gene regulation and its evolution .

Finally, the Archaeology Channel has an interesting video about the archaeology of St. Louis in Uncovering Ancient St. Louis – the video was written and produced by Mark Leach.

Special Update: I don’t normally update a Fourstone Hearth after it has been published, but in this case I am making an exception. Check out this post at Anthropology.Net. Free literature – and Neanderthal related to boot….
