Biomechanics of the Hominin Upper Limb: Entheseal Development and Stone Tool Manufacture

Feuerriegel, Elen


The close association of the advent of tool behaviours with changes to the upper limb morphology of fossil hominins has lead researchers to hypothesise that stone tool manufacture and use represents an important selective pressure for the upper limb, and yet the makers of the first stone tools, the Oldowan technological complex, remain obscure. Entheseal complexity studies have suggested that morphological changes to muscle attachment sites might be a fruitful...[Show more]
