Antropogenez.Ru is the most popular of the Russian-speaking platforms dedicated to human evolution. Although we appeal to a wide audience of more than a thousand unique daily visitors (as of September, 2011), the goals we set are no joke. Simply put, we strive to:
- deliver top-notch public-oriented content that would systematically cover the subject of human evolution including the most recent progress in anthropology and closely related fields of study such as archaeology, paleogenetics, primatology, etc.
- Debunk commonly held myths and misconceptions put forth by certain interest groups with anti-scientific agenda.
- Draw attention of the public to the challenges modern science is faced with.
You will find no superficial journalism here but real science explained by real scientists. Our contributors are experts in human evolution who are eminent in the fields of archaeology, anthropology, genetics, and paleontology. And since this is a non-commercial project, the only advertising on the portal is provided to other reputable scientific resources and institutions and is granted free of charge.
Among other things, the website features a constantly growing inventory of paleoanthropological
findings boasting over 200 sites and 300 fossils to date as well as peer-reviewed articles, videos and even an interactive paleoanthropological map that uses Google's most up-to-date mapping technology.
This website was created and is maintained under the guidance of its editor, Alexander Sokolov. Our scientific editor is Stanislav Drobyshevskiy, Associate Professor at Moscow State University.
