    Ancient pee stains help pinpoint humans' switch from hunters to herders, study shows

    Early human settlers relieving themselves more than 10,000 years ago probably did not think their pee stains would make a splash for the ages, but they may have done exactly that.

    Archaeologists have begun using the salty residue of Neolithic urine to understand exactly when humanity switched from being primarily hunters to herding animals and living together in larger settlements.

    Samples from the Aşıklı Hyk settlement in Turkey show how the population exploded around 10,000 years ago.

    amazing, what the smart kids can tease out of, what surely used to be thought of as, a ridiculous idea

    nice to see inventiveness combined with the more rigid scientific way
