    In this audiobook, I answer your questions and cover a few more important topics that most first-time RV buyers I think should know about. I took great care not to make this audiobook sound like an owner’s manual or a technical bulletin. But I wanted this audiobook to explain few basic rules, tips, and tricks of buying the right RV the very first time. If you are thinking about buying an RV in the near future, I think I can help you decide on the right one.

    Say hello to hobbits’ possible ancestors. Excavations of fossils from roughly 700,000-year-old hominids on the Indonesian island of Flores have reinvigorated scientific debate over the evolutionary origins and identity of Homo floresiensis, a half-sized member of the human genus that lived much later on Flores.

    In an answer to archaeologists' prayers, excavations at the site of the first English church in what is now the United States have cast light on the lives and deaths of four key players at Virginia's Jamestown colony more than 400 years ago. Archaeologists discovered the site of the church, which was used from 1608 to 1617 and hosted Pocahontas' marriage to John Rolfe, as well as four burials in the church, in 2010. Excavations and investigations of the dead began in November 2013.

    Starting 4,000 years ago or more, Central Asian herders routinely migrated from highland pastures in summer to lowland areas in winter. Over roughly the next 2,000 years, those routes through mountainous regions eventually became a key part of the Silk Road, an ancient trade and travel network stretching from China to Europe, says a team led by anthropologist Michael Frachetti of Washington University in St. Louis.

Although researchers have often assumed that shoreline colonizers of the New World kept heading south from Alaska in search of marine foods, staying put in some spots made sense: Hunter-gatherers needed only simple tools to exploit rich coastal and inland food sources for thousands of years.
