Dr. Frayer's early work focused on the evolution of European Upper Paleolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic populations, emphasizing that evolution did not stop with the appearance of "modern" Homo sapiens at 30,000 years ago. After research documenting so-called Neanderthal autapomorphies in the Upper Paleolithic groups, his work broadened to include topics ranging from Neanderthals to the Pakistani Neolithic to early Homo in Eritrea. Recent publications include a critique on Homo 'floresiensis,' an extensive bibliography of the Krapina Neanderthals and chapters in a monograph on the Czech Aurignacian site of Mlade. Much of Dr. Frayer's work is collaborative with colleagues in places other than Kansas.
