One of the earliest known pieces of metalwork in Britain, found just a few miles from Stonehenge, has gone on display to the public for the first time.
A “huge” workshop for flint tools dating back to the Late Chalcolithic, or about 4,500-4,200 years ago, has been discovered by Bulgarian archaeologists in archaeological excavations of a settlement mound near the town of Kamenovo, Razgrad District, in Northeast Bulgaria.
Danish archaeologists doing a survey ahead of the construction of the Femern Belt link scheme, an immersed tunnel that will connect the German island of Fehmarn with the Danish island of Lolland, have found a 5,500-year old-ceramic vessel bearing the fingerprint of the artisan who made it.
It is seen as a defining feature of civilisation that emerged relatively recently from the intellectual crucible of ancient Greece.
Jupiter and Venus will merge into a dazzling "super-star" in the Western horizon by the end of June, NASA says.
If you’re the sort of person who lives by the motto that every second counts, next week, you get to put your money where your mouth is. That’s because, as we first learned back in January, we’re all being gifted a leap second on June 30th.
Alt: NASA Explains Why June 30 Will Get Extra Second
Happiness just can't be forced. Studies have shown that trying to feel happier in a given moment backfires, actually making people feel worse. And simply paying attention to one's level of happiness tends to make the glass look half-empty. So how can you gain the many rewards of happiness—which include better health and stronger relationships—without forcing it? New findings suggest rather than trying to boost happiness in the moment, a more effective route is to maximize your odds by making a concerted effort to plan your time around activities you think you will enjoy.
Denny Gulick began playing piano at age 4. With perfect pitch and a knack for memorization, he was a natural.
When a bad mood strikes, it's tempting to lean into the emotions and just ride it out. But there are ways to take a more proactive approach -- even with what you eat. Emerging research suggests that the bacteria living in your gut may be impacting your mood, and changing what you eat can be the bad-mood-buster you've been looking for.
Plenty of us have known a dog on Prozac. We have also witnessed the eye rolls that come with the mention of canine psychiatry. Doting pet owners—myself included—ascribe all kinds of questionable psychological ills to our pawed companions. But in fact, the science suggests that numerous nonhuman species do suffer from psychiatric symptoms. Birds obsess; horses on occasion get pathologically compulsive; dolphins and whales, especially those in captivity, self-mutilate. And that thing when your dog woefully watches you pull out of the driveway from the window—that might be DSM-certified separation anxiety.
Among primates, humans are the kings of lateral thinking – and also of lateral vision. It seems that the shape of our eye sockets means we can view more of our world without moving our head than other great apes.
Chimpanzees may have a sense of right and wrong that echoes human concepts of morality, a study has found.
Curling up to look like a pile of poop might not sound appealing, but it's a useful strategy that some species of caterpillars use to hide from hungry birds, a new study finds.
You might think that young children would first learn to recognize sounds and then learn how those categories of sounds fit together into words. But that isn't how it works. Rather, kids learn sounds and words at the same time. Now, researchers present evidence from European starlings showing that songbirds learn their songs in much the same way.
When rats rest, their brains simulate journeys to a desired future such as a tasty treat, finds new UCL research funded by the Wellcome Trust and Royal Society.
From flower emblazoned cemeteries to rooftop gardens and balconies, Norway's capital Oslo is creating a "bee highway" to protect endangered pollinators essential to food production.
