Antiga Amazônia Presente (Ancient Amazonia Today)
Antiga Amazônia Presente (Ancient Amazon Today) is the first feature documentary about Amazonian archaeology produced only by a team of Brazilian archaeologists.
Directed by Silvio Luiz Cordeiro, the documentary was recorded during several trips in the Lower Amazon and presents ancient places which are still relatively unknown by the general public.
The production team visited urban archaeological sites and other more distant sites, like the rock art found in the Serra do Ererê (Monte Alegre), and the cultural landscape built by the marajoara people in the past. The team also documented the impressive collection storage of the Goeldi Museum (Belém); the artifacts exhibited in the Marajó Museum, gathered by the Jesuit Giovanni Gallo; the archaeological and historical collection of the Integrated Museum of Obidos; as well as a small collection of Tapajônica pieces, gathered by a family from Santarém. However, the most significant part of this audiovisual and photographic collection created by the team on the trip are the stories of the people who, for several reasons, maintain a relationship with places and objects from the world of Amazonian archaeology, giving meanings and values to them today.

Ancient human ancestor may have persisted through Ice Age says study in PLOS ONE
After years of studying a mysterious thigh bone from a cave in China, scientists said Thursday they believe it represents an ancient species of human that persisted much longer than previously thought.
The 14,000-year-old bone was uncovered in 1989 in Maludong, known as the Red Deer Cave. The trove of fossils it was initially found with went unstudied until 2012.
The partial femur, though relatively young in age, looks like the bones of far older species like Homo habilis and early Homo erectus that lived more than 1.5 million years ago, said the study in PLOS ONE.

Smithsonian scientists trace anthropocene roots to early human activity
A new analysis of the fossil record by scientists at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History has revealed that the structure of plant and animal communities changed significantly about 6,000 years ago, around the time agriculture began to spread across North America. The study drew on the museum’s paleobiology collections and focused on 360,000 pairs of organisms in 80 plant or mammal communities on different continents, including groups that existed up to 307 million years ago as well as modern communities and communities from the recent past….

El número 88 de revista PH invita a la reflexión
ISSN: 2340-7565
Revista del IAPH para los profesionales del patrimonio cultural
Published: 2015
Revista ph publica el número de otoño de 2015 cargado de contenidos interesantes y puntos de vista variados que enriquecen cada una de sus secciones. En el panorama de la actualidad patrimonial se hace un hueco el tema de los derechos de autor en la “era digital” a través del Proyecto Outings y de la encuesta de NEMO, y se sugirieren otras reflexiones sobre: el decreto regulador de los guías de turismo en Andalucía; la Ley 10/2015 para la salvaguarda del PCI; o la incorporación de nuevos agentes y sistemas de colaboración social en el ámbito patrimonial (caso de El Cabanyal y del Proyecto Nuraghe). Esta línea reflexiva continúa en el resto de secciones: en Perspectivas debatiendo sobre cómo asumir el imperativo de eficiencia energética en la edificación histórica; en la Entrevista a Dominique Perrault donde comparte su visión sobre la cuota de responsabilidad de lo público y lo privado en la patrimonialización de la ciudad contemporánea; o en Proyectos, actuaciones y experiencias con el balance sobre el Registro de Paisajes de Interés Cultural de Andalucía, entre otras contribuciones.
