Eat Hearthy

The new Four Stone Hearth carnival is up, covering some of the best in the four fields of anthropology, over at Hominin Dental Anthropology (say that five times fast, and you’re a real anthropologist). It has a nice chronological theme, starting with a discussion of meat eating among Neanderthals, some pseudo-science on our cousins the Hobbits, ritual and habitation in a Neolithic archaeology site, and other archaeological themes. Then some disease in the Renaissance, the general intelligence vs. social intelligence debate, and finally us.

All worth a look, but given the theme of this blog, the stand-out would be the general vs. social intelligence debate over what accounts for the evolutionary increase in human brain size. So check that out over at Professor Olsen’s.
