A Record-Breaking Heatwave Is Revealing the Long-Lost History of the British Isles
A record-breaking heatwave in Britain and the Republic of Ireland is making history in more ways than one: dozens of underground archaeological sites have shown up in aerial photography, their positions revealed by temporary “cropmarks” in the parched landscape. As well as known settlements, the conditions have revealed a number of new sites previously lost to human knowledge. In Scotland, new discoveries include a temporary Roman camp and Iron Age stone structures. In Wales, surveyors flying over a known prehistoric settlement found new evidence of a Roman villa built on the same land. And in Ireland, a histor...

Great new review of Novichok nerve agents
This article now brings together much that we do know, and is the best short publication in English on the topic. Some key points made in the paper: Unlike other nerve agents that primarily affect the central nervous system, the Novichok group is thought to also target peripheral nerves and can cause chronic neuropathy. Hydrolysis of Novichok agents produces hydrofluoric acid, hydrochloric acid, hydrogen cyanide, and various oximes that can prolong cholinergic effects. Since dry bleach powder can accelerate hydrolysis of Novichok agents into toxic byproducts, they should not be used. Must reading for anyone interested in...

New genus of extinct Holocene gibbon associated with humans in Imperial China
Although all extant apes are threatened with extinction, there is no evidence for human-caused extinctions of apes or other primates in postglacial continental ecosystems, despite intensive anthropogenic pressures associated with biodiversity loss for millennia in many regions. Here, we report a new, globally extinct genus and species of gibbon, Junzi imperialis, described from a partial cranium and mandible from a ~2200- to 2300-year-old tomb from Shaanxi, China. Junzi can be differentiated from extant hylobatid genera and the extinct Quaternary gibbon Bunopithecus by using univariate and multivariate analyses of craniode...
