News from ARISC Members: Stone Age Site in Armenia Challenges Assumptions About Early Technology

Analysis of artifacts from a newly excavated site in Armenia shows that human technological innovation occurred intermittently throughout the Old World, rather than spreading from a single point of origin, as previously thought. The study, co-authored by UConn archaeology professor and ARISC Director Daniel Adler and more than a dozen scientists from universities worldwide, was recently published in the journal Science. Also participating in the project is ARISC Member Ellery Frahm. See also:
