For many years, Africa had suffered and had been the focus of terrible news and unnecessary exposure. As a result, the mere mention of "Africa" paints a picture of starvation, hopelessness, and a primitive culture and attitude. The world's opinion of Africa as a miserable place has not changed. Thriving Africa, on the other hand, has received little attention. Africa is far from the desolate landscape presented in the media, with bustling cityscapes, sophisticated colleges, and enormous re...

The Boker Tachtit archaeological excavation site in Israel's central Negev desert holds clues to one of the most significant events in human history: the spread of modern humans, Homo sapiens, from Africa into Eurasia, and the subsequent demise of Neanderthal populations in the region. Researchers from the Weizmann Institute of Science and the Max Planck Society, led by Prof. Elisabetta Boaretto, together with Dr. Omry Barzilai of the Israel Antiquities Authority, returned to Boker Tachtit nearly 40 years after it was first excavated. Using advanced sampling and dating methods, they offer a new chronological framework for this important chapter in our anthropological evolution. Published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), the study suggests that Homo sapiens and Neanderthals were far from strangers.
