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.
