TU professors and former TU student conduct important research regarding Neanderthals

University of Tulsa anthropology professors Donald Henry and Miriam Belmaker along with former TU student Sean Bergin (now in School of Human Evolution and Social Change, Arizona State University) are conducting groundbreaking paleoanthropological research in looking at the effects of terrain as a constraint on Neanderthal dispersal from Western Europe.  To do so, they will synthesize data from fossil and lithic artifact records, anatomical/physiological research, and digital mapping/satellite imagery.  The team will present its findings at the International Union of Prehistoric and Proto-Historic Sciences in Burgos, Spain, in September of 2014.
