A look at a few recently published papers now. Just lately I appear to have been quite lucky with my choice of posts since, on a couple of occasions, no sooner have I published or am about to publish than, lo and behold, another subject related paper is released. Sometimes this appears to vindicate or agree with what you believe and sometimes it makes you completely re-evaluate and reassess your line of thinking. Either way, it is another indication of how fast things move in today’s palaeoworld and it is always, but always interesting.
