IT Conversations | Tech Nation | Brian Fagan

Brian Fagan brings a great excitement and wonderful insights. The way he speaks, and the excitement he brings to this subject reminds me of Joseph Campbell. I look forward to reading this book and the next one he has coming out on water.  
IT Conversations | Tech Nation | Brian Fagan: "Dr. Moria Gunn chats with anthropologist, Brian Fagan, about his research into Neaderthals and how they relate to modern humans, from the pages of his new book, Cro-Magnon: How the Ice Age Gave Birth to the First Modern Humans. They delve into the story of a little known, yet seminal, chapter of human experience"

Genome hints humans, Neanderthals rolled in prehistoric hay

Genome hints humans, Neanderthals rolled in prehistoric hay: "At the same time, the genome sequence does provide evidence that humans and Neanderthals have interbred. This became apparent when the Neanderthal genome was paired against human genomes from different parts of the globe. The Neanderthal DNA consistently matched European and Asian samples better than it did African; the difference was small, but consistent. It suggested that the Neanderthals, which were restricted to Europe and Asia at the time modern humans originated in Africa, had interbred with humans once they began migrating out of Africa."

I don't think I need say any more.
