Bonobo Sex and Society __ "At a juncture in history during which women are seeking equality with men, science arrives with a belated gift to the feminist movement. Male-biased evolutionary scenarios -- Man the Hunter, Man the Toolmaker and so on --
are being challenged by the discovery that females play a central, perhaps even dominant, role in the social life of one of our nearest relatives. In the past few years many strands of knowledge have come together concerning a relatively unknown ape with an unorthodox repertoire of behavior: the bonobo." - From Scientific American - http://songweaver.com/info/bonobos.html

Research - Paleopathology __ Archaeology and anthropology are reaching farther in the quest for knowledge, and in the process are creating new sub-disciplines. One of the newest of these is the field of paleopathology. Paleopathology is the study of disease in
ancient man. - illustrated - From Virginia Commonwealth University - http://views.vcu.edu/pat/research/paleo/
South Dakota Paleopathology __ Learn about the study of disease within a population which was heterogeneous in time, culture, and location. "Archaeologists unearthed the remains of almost 500 people who were killed during the massacre at Crow Creek.
This has allowed physical anthropologists and the medical profession to have a unique situation for the study of ancient disease in a laboratory setting. Note: The remains were treated with respect and were reburied in 1981." - illustrated - From University of Iowa - http://www.uiowa.edu/~anthro/paleopathology/
