CollAsia - Conserving Photographic and Archival Collections

Photographic and Archival Collections cover historical, artistic and identity-building values transformation over time, recorded through a huge amount of documents. At the same time, they are very fragile, vulnerable to different hazards, and difficult to manage. In order to respond to the collection’s needs, the course programme addresses collections care practices and reviews living cultural practices with current conservation principles, assessing the benefits and the sustainability of local materials and techniques for conservation. It also stimulates professionals to develop and carry out applied research to solve specific conservation challenges in their institutions.

Scientists find 7.2-million-year-old pre-human remains in the Balkans

The common lineage of great apes and humans split several hundred thousand years earlier than hitherto assumed, according to an international research team headed by Professor Madelaine Böhme from the Senckenberg Centre for Human Evolution and Palaeoenvironment at the University of Tübingen and Professor Nikolai Spassov from the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. The researchers investigated two fossils of Graecopithecus freybergi with state-of-the-art methods and came to the conclusion that they belong to pre-humans. Their findings, published today in two papers in the journal PLOS ONE, further indicate that the split of the human lineage occurred in the Eastern Mediterranean and not - as customarily assumed - in Africa.
