The team noted that the fossils reveal a complex evolutionary history of mankind that likely involved the entire African continent. Professor Jean-Jacques Hublin is a a palaeoanthropologist at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany. Hublin said in a statement:We used to think that there was a cradle of mankind 200,000 years ago in east Africa, but our new data reveal that Homo sapiens spread across the entire African continent around 300,000 years ago.

Sustainable Living in Auroville

Yesterday, at the Sustainable Living Institute in Kottakarai was a workshop conducted as a part of a Reasearch program between Heriot Watt Univeristy, Findhorn Foundation College, Scene Connect, CSR, Buddha Garden and Auroville Consultancy. The workshop was meant to learn from the local farmers about the challenges and opportunities in the Tamil Nadu farming community.

This interview is with Micheal and Andrew who are visiting academics from Findhorn Foundation College and Herriot-Watt university. They are developing sustainable agriculture and energy conserving practices . They talk about the technology being tested here could potentially be implemented at a mass scale, and help drastically reduce the unbridled consumption of natural resources. The irrigation systems being developed could result in a 60% reduction in water consumption of irrigation, reduction in compost input, increase in yield and increase in nutrient content of the harvest.

Poppo on Archeology

Poppo Pingel is a celebrated architect, who came to Auroville in 1968 for the inauguration as the German delegate. In this interview, Pingel talks about his passion for archeology that stayed with him throughout his life, but found an outlet in Auroville. He describes his various findings from his very first excavation attempt to his recent discoveries as well as the challenges that accompanied them. Additionally, he discusses the archeological park he established (which is situated on Crown Road between Solar Kitchen and Visitors Centre) and explains why he chose to create a ‘park’ instead of a conventional historical site.
