Dating of archaeological sites
Cornwall has a rich archaeological heritage with sites identified from as distant as the Paleolithic Era (Old Stone Age) of pre 8000BC.
Lahn and colleagues examined two genes, named microcephalin and ASPM, that are connected to brain size.
In fact, the variations were so common they couldn't be accidental mutations but instead were probably due to natural selection, where genetic changes that are favorable to a species quickly gain a foothold and begin to spread, the researchers report.
Lahn offers an analogy: Medieval monks would copy manuscripts and each copy would inevitably contain errors — accidental mutations.
Mesolithic sites (Middle Stone Age) have been identified in Cornwall at Dozmary Pool on Bodmin Moor.
Along many parts of the North Cornish Coast, flint working was prolific, notably at Trevose Head and at Land's End.
With a history dating back more than eight thousand years, Pafos has a wealth of treasures for the visitor.
