Hi friends, my corner of twitter has been a bit quiet lately. Thanks for hanging in there with me as I adjust to life in Indonesia and struggle to manage a truckload of projects. I hope to get back to regular program soon. Java Man skull for emphasis!

Apparently powerpoint has a new feature of suggesting image captions—and it's giving me life right now. For it suggested "a dinosaur on top of a counter" and for Paranthropus it offered "close up of a rock." 😂

Phytoliths are microscopic silica structures from plants. In the sediments of archaeological sites, they can show evidence for use of wood for burning, grasses for bedding. These are from Pinnacle Point, South Africa.
