Abstract:The Upper Pleistocene (130,000-10,00 years ago) encompassed a period of dramatic cultural developments in the southeastern Mediterranean basin. This book highlights and synthesizes current research and scientific debate on the archaeology of this time period in North Africa and the Near East. Areas of focus include the Out-of-Africa movement of anatomically modern humans into the Levant, the transition from the Middle Palaeolithic/Middle Stone Age to the Upper Palaeolithic/Later Stone Age, and the beginning of a new subsistence economy, based on plant cultivation and animal husbandry. Contributions by Nick Barton, Ofer Bar-Yosef, Anna Belfer-Cohen, Abdeljalil Bouzouggar, Brian Boyd, Laine Clark-Balzan, Simon N. Collcutt, André Debénath, Elena A.A. Garcea, Mohamed Abdeljalil El Hajraoui, Roland Nespoulet, Romuald Schild, Jean-Luc Schwenninger, John J. Shea, Jennifer R. Smith, Pierre M. Vermeersch and Fred Wendorf. [ASC Leiden abstract]
