Why is anthropology received so poorly? Is it a branding problem or a problem with expanding out?

Jared, that's tough, but I think you did the right thing. Anthropology is not so much a career as a vocation, a calling. And it can be quite taxing for spouses. In general, jobs in academia are scarce. Many end up as adjuncts, who have no benefits and no job security. Anthropology is no different from other academic fields in that respect. It takes persistence and devotion. Only research grants have enabled me to do what I really want to do. Writing time for an anthropologist has to be carved out of a heavy teaching schedule. But for all this, some are able to do it.

A re-analysis of a 120,000 Neandetal rib from Krapina, Croatia, reveals that this one Neandertal suffered from Fibrous Dysplasia but why do the authors extend their conclusion that prehistoric humans suffered from the same cancers we do and lived with the same problems we now do?

Why do you think anthropologists are some of the lowest paid and least respected scientists in science?

Dunbar returns with a simulation of his social brain hypothesis, showing that cognitive capacity in his model increases as social size increases. What do you think?

A redating of the BH-1 mandible from Balanica pushes back the window of time of non-Neandertal humans in south eastern Europe. Does this mean there were pockets of primitive humans, isolated from the glaciers of Europe?

An interesting paper in the journal Cell looks at the genetic diversity of three hunter-gatherer populations in Africa and has a very interesting observation -- the possible introgression of an ancient and unknown hominid species.
