Via Jpost.com, I found the following article in the International Journal of Osteoarchaeology (definitely in my top-10 of Osteoarchaeology journals!)

https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/oa.2873

"Ear infection prevalence in prehistoric and historic populations of the southern Levant: A new diagnostic method"

"...Complete petrous bones of 229 individuals from six populations of the terminal Pleistocene–Holocene Levant (14,900 cal bp–1,917 ad) were included in the study...."

Like a ancient DNA zombie, all I could think about was those juicy petrous...

Any idea if these skulls are on their way to be drilled for DNA???
