Testing the New Hypotheses

Testing the New Hypotheses

(p.161) CHAPTER 9 Testing the New Hypotheses
Dragon Bone Hill

Noel T. Boaz

Russell L. Ciochon

Oxford University Press

Anatomical, archaeological, geological, paleontological, and paleoecological evidence have been pieced together to present a series of new hypotheses about the Chinese Homo erectus and its main site of discovery, Dragon Bone Hill. This new composite view fits the available evidence, but all hypotheses in science should be testable. This means that they must be falsifiable. This chapter proposes a number of tests which can either disprove the book's hypotheses or further support them.

Keywords:   hominids, fossils, Dragon Bone Hill, Homo erectus, Homo sapiens
