We are seeking for students interested in excavating with us from July 24 to August 26. Only 16 positions available to excavate the last Neandertals and first modern humans in western Europe!
Leiden archaeologist José Joordens has been awarded a Veni grant to develop her research on the role of climate change in early hominin evolution.
New finds demonstrate that Neandertals were the first in Europe to make standardised and specialised bone tools – which are still in use today. These firndings are reported by Leiden reseachers together with an international team of archaeologists in the PNAS journal (Proceedings National Academy of Sciences USA).
