VIENNA Nike VaporMax 2019 Donne , Sept. 22 (Xinhua) -- Discoveries at a dig site in Austria have showed that the oldest traces of modern humans in Europe have been found in Austria, which can be dated back to 43,500 years ago, archaeologists involved in the project claimed upon the publishing of their research on Monday.
The archaeologists had been digging at the Willendorf II site Willendorf in the Wachau region of Lower Austria from 2006 to 2011, where they found small stone artifacts believed to have been used as parts of weapons for hunting, typical of the Upper Paleolithic Age Nike VaporMax 2019 Saldi , that they were then able to date as being 43,500 years old.
Additionally the team was able to reconstruct the climate and vegetation of the region at the time through soil analysis, including both soil type and morphology, as well as through the composition of the shells of different species and sub-species of snails buried in that particular layer of soil.
They said this method of climate reconstruction is much more accurate than carbon-14 datings commonly associated with climate data from the Paleolithic Age.
Philip Nigst from the Division of Archaeology at the University of Cambridge told the Austria Press Agency on Monday that this showed the first modern humans settled in the region at the beginning of a warm phase of the Ice Age, where the region was a tundra steppe with light coniferous forests.
This estimation of the existence of modern humans in Europe is several thousands of years earlier than previously thought. Bence Viola from the Department of Anthropology at the University of Vienna told the Austria Press Agency this also showed the period of time that modern humans shared with Neanderthals is greater, now estimated to have been at least 3 Nike VaporMax 2019 Ingrosso ,500 years.
"We know that they mixed, because all humans outside of Africa today carry 1.5 to 3 percent Neanderthal DNA," she said.

VENICE, Italy, May 13 (Xinhua) -- Invited artist and Suzhou embroiderer Yao Huifen said she spent 20 years learning the craft.
"My work used to be solely traditional. For this exhibition I engaged in a different process, trying new ways to bring the traditional to the contemporary -- it was very enjoyable Nike VaporMax 2019 Spedizione Gratuita ," she told Xinhua at the beginning of the 57th Venice Biennale, or 2017 international art exhibition in Venice.
The exhibition will open to the public on Sunday, and runs to November 26.
Yao and other three artists have been invited to extend and interpret Chinese artistic traditions in a show titled "Continuum - Generation by Generation" at the China Pavilion at this year's Art Biennale in Venice.
The China Pavilion is one of 86 national pavilions at the Art Biennale. Its core theme is that individual acts of creation take place in a communal context that stretches across the dimensions of both space and time.
The Continuum show at the Pavilion mixes embroidery and sculpture, painting and performance, video and puppetry, installations and photography to explore the notion that artists stand in an unbroken line from antiquity to now.
Yao made nine pieces for the show Nike VaporMax 2019 Uomo , each made using a different embroidery technique and up to 1,000 different colors.
"Some of the techniques I use go back 1,000 years," Yao said. "Taken all together, the pieces stand for continuity."
Also in the exhibition is work by Tang Nannan, who explores calligraphy and ink painting to make contemporary art.
In a mesmerizing black-and-white video unfolding in slow motion over four minutes Nike VaporMax 2019 Italia , grey and black waves rise, curl and break across the lower half of the frame.
Above them, bolts of lightning flash within banks of roiling black clouds, against a distant range of tall black mountains.
When asked how he achieved this effect, which is spellbinding, peaceful and unsettling at the same time Nike VaporMax 2019 Scontate , Tang said he filmed on location in his native Taiwan, then enhanced the footage with a computer program.
"I needed a prehistoric-looking landscape, which is hard to find," he explained. "It took me four months to prepare for the shoot, then two months to actually get the footage I wanted."
Also at the China Pavilion was Shanghai-born artist Wu Jian'an, who uses folk craft elements such as shadow puppetry and papercuts in his large-scale installations.
He works closely with Wang Tianwen http://www.vapormax2019scontate.it/ , a shadow puppet master from east China's Zhejiang province, whose work is also featured in the Continuum show.
In a monumental piece titled "The Heaven of Nine Levels," Wu engraved images of salamanders, frogs and human-faced birds on layers of stretched leather cut out in concentric patterns and standing over 5 meters tall by more than 3 meters wide.
The artist describes this as an evolution of the will to life and the will to power, with the "heaven of nine levels" as a food chain in which each being devours the other.
"It is a projection of human desires, a heaven that lies inside human bodies Scarpe Nike VaporMax Scontate ," he writes.
