Jamie Hodgkins, Assistant Professor of Anthropology, recently published research reviewing fossil human ancestors currently known from Bulgaria and discussing how to frame hypothesis for the migration of human ancestors into and out of Europe. In the latest issue of Vertebrate Paleobiology and Paleoanthropology, Hodgkins and colleagues emphasize that Bulgaria lies at the crossroads of Europe and Asia Minor and constitutes a key portion of one of the possible dispersal pathways that hominin populations would have employed as they entered and left Europe during the Pleistocene.
