Linkdump August 2012

Back from my last round of fieldwork – this should be my last linkdump for the year! Some of the biggest stories from the last couple of weeks is the discovery of the oldest anatomically modern human skull to be found in Southeast Asia. The discovery was made in Laos, in Tham Pa Ling.
