The largest mounded tomb from the Silla kingdom in Korea was found to be that of a queen, who wore a pure gold crown and a golden belt of leadership. These make it clear that she was a ruling queen, but she does not appear in the official list of kings, although some queens do. How can archaeology solve this mystery, without any writing in the tomb?

Ann Axtell Morris, archaeologist, artist, and author, was the wife of prominent archaeologist, Earl H. Morris, and mother of Colorado State University Professor and archaeologist, Elizabeth A. Morris. Ann accompanied Earl on major, multi-year expeditions sponsored by the Carnegie Institution during the 1920s and 1930s in the U. S. Southwest and Mexico. During those years, she recorded architecture, rock art, murals, landscapes, and expedition work in watercolor paintings and drawings and pioneered methods of documentation that remain in use today.

The traditional focus in ancient Greek warfare has been on the heavily-armed infantryman called the hoplite. For roughly three hundred years (c. 650-350 BC), Greek hoplites, arrayed in the compact mass formation known as the phalanx, dominated the way states waged war. However, over time light-armed soldiers such as slingers, archers, javelin-men, and small-shield bearing soldiers called peltasts increasingly made significant contributions to military engagements.

The few literate cultures in AD 536 recorded intense cold, crop failures, starvation, and deaths. About 75% of the people in a northern Chinese kingdom died. Similar problems were reported around the Mediterranean. Tree rings in North America, Europe, and Asia record 15 years of cold beginning in AD 536. Ice cores in Greenland and in Antarctica record a dramatic increase in sulfur in the same year, indicating a volcanic eruption was the cause, and not an asteroid impact. Read more »

Reindeer and auroch hunting groups in the Upper Paleolithic of Europe were big-game hunters who survived in a landscape that is very different from today. In coastal Portugal ground-penetrating radar and geological mapping has placed a number of sites ranging in age from 30,000 to 25,000 years ago in an environment that was dry, cold and populated by herds of large herbivores. Hunting strategies and subsistence methods can be inferred by placing information from standard archaeological methods into this complex ancient world. Read more »
