Prof. Ari Matmon and Dr. Ron Shaar in an article at "Haaretz" :Archaeologists Find Oldest Home in Human History, Dating to 2 Million Years Ago

29 April, 2021
 
Wonderwerk Cave in South Africa also houses the first known fire use, and another collection of useless crystals – but this one is half a million years old Archaeologists have found the oldest home in hominin history. Unsurprisingly, it is a cave: Wonderwerk Cave in the Kalahari Desert. Astonishingly, it has been occupied more or less continuously for two million years. Through most of that time, modern humans didn’t even exist.

Quaternary influx of proximal coarse-grained dust altered circum-Mediterranean soil productivity

11 January, 2021

A paper by Rivka Amit, Yehouda Enzel, and Onn Crouvi published in Geology points out that the late Pleistocene loess (and coarse silt quartz) episode is also responsible for the thicker, silicate-rich soils developed on the tops of the Judean Mountains, a carbonate terrain. The long-distance from such coarse silt sources prevented the development of thick soils on the carbonate mountains of the Galilee and Create, where only fine gains arrive from distant sources in the Sahara and Arabia.
