The invention of writing on Rapa Nui (Easter Island). New radiocarbon dates on the Rongorongo script (

Abstract: “Placing the origin of an undeciphered script in time is crucial to understanding the invention of writing in human history.

A new pterosaur from the Middle Jurassic of Skye, Scotland and the early diversification of flying reptiles (

Abstract: “The Middle Jurassic was a critical time in pterosaur evolution, witnessing the appearance of major morphological innovations that underpinned successive radiations by rhamphorhynchids, basally branching monofenestratans, and pterodactyloids. Frustratingly, this interval is particularly sparsely sampled, with a...

Stable isotope chemistry reveals plant-dominant diet among early foragers on the Andean Altiplano, 9.0–6.5 cal. ka (9,000 to 6,500 years ago) (

Abstract: Current models of early human subsistence economies suggest a focus on large mammal hunting. To evaluate this hypothesis, we examine human bone stable isotope chemistry of 24 individuals from the early Holocene sites of Wilamaya Patjxa (9.0–8.7 cal. ka) and Soro Mik’aya Patjxa (8.0–6.5 cal. ka) located at 3800...
