"Blombos" features on TRACSYMBOLS website

The aim of TRACSYMBOLS is to examine how key behavioural innovations emerged among Homo sapiens and Homo neanderthalensis in southern Africa and Europe respectively, and explore whether and how environmental variability influenced this development between 180 – 25 ka [Marine Isotope Stages (MIS) 6 – 3].

To achieve this goal the PI and co-PI have built up a new research team that for the first time... are combining archaeological results, original multi-proxy palaeoenvironmental data, and state-of-the-art climatic simulations for two continents to which a dedicated biocomputational algorithm is being applied. This approach is creating new benchmarks for better understanding the behavioural evolution of these hominins within precise environmental and ecological frameworks.
