The current (November) issue of Scientific American has an interesting profile of the archaeolgist Olga Soffer ("The Caveman's New Clothes") and her discoveries in respect to the paleolithic development of plant-based clothing. It has some interesting comments on the Venus of Willendorf. The profile is subtitled, "From what they wore to what they hunted: overturning the threadbare reconstructions of Ice Age culture." The article does not provide any bibliography, so I presume her writings are only available in professional journals.
