Scientists thought people first set foot on the frozen Tibetan Plateau 15,000 years ago. New genomic analyses suggest multiplying that figure as much as fourfold
The first humans who ventured onto the Tibetan Plateau, often called the “roof of the world,” faced one of the most brutal environments our species has ever confronted. At an average elevation of more than 4,500 meters, it is a cold and arid place with half the oxygen present at sea level. Although scientists had long thought no one set foot on the plateau until 15,000 years ago, new genetic and archaeological data indicate that this event may have taken place much earlier—possibly as far back as 62,000 years ago, in the middle of the last ice age. A better understanding of the history of migration and population growth in the region could help unravel the mysteries of Tibetans' origin and offer clues as to how humans have adapted to low-oxygen conditions at high altitudes.
For Immediate Release:
Advanced Archaeology Review Magazine is proud to announce the ASEAN Advanced Archaeology Symposium 2017 has been confirmed and will be held at the Balanghai Hotel, Butuan City, in the Philippines. The conference will include Archaeologists, Geologists, Researchers, and Authors from across the world as well as from the Philippines that will be presenting their research on advanced archaeology discoveries, new theories, and discussing new technical scanning equipment that is being used in the archaeology arena.
There will be a demonstration of the new Satellite Radar Scan technology at a nearby dig in the Agusan Del Sur area of the Caraga Region of Mindanao. The Scan Technology penetrates up to 6K into the earth. It shows the chambers, materials, minerals, etc. that are there. It is truly the future of Archaeology and it is highly recommended to attend.
We would like to invite all Universities and Societies with Anthropology, Geology and Archaeology programs in the ASEAN communities of S.E. Asia and Pacific Rim area to join us for this exciting event.
Dr Sam Osmanagich, the Director of the Center for Archaeology & Anthropology at the American University in Bosnia-Herzegovina and the discoverer of the Bosnian Pyramids will be presenting on "Archaeological Tourism" that he has helped to promote in Bosnia helping to substantially increase tourism incomes for many communities there. We highly recommend Tourism Directors from all LGU's from all over SE Asia to attend.
The Balanghai Hotel and Convention Center will have a package deal for all staff and representatives from interested Universities and Societies.
The list of presenters for the conference is now available at:
