The Revolution of 1959 brought forth changes in the mission, theoretical orientation, and organization of archaeology in Cuba and created a role for, and constraints on, the profession that are unique in the Western Hemisphere. Living on the Edge; Resettling British Neanderthals in Middle Palaeolithic Europe; Bibliography with Manuscript Sources; Appendix: Flint Analysis Methodology; Index. Historical Background; Previous and Current Research Frameworks 3. One of the reasons for Neanderthals to frequent this location, which is situated near a stream valley close to the confluence with a small tributary, might be the presence of relatively good-quality flint nodules and fairly large slabs of hälleflinta. The core of t he research involves an experimental programme in collaboration with ballistics, military experts as well as athletes and martial arts specialists to elucidate the use of these 'pointy sticks' in hunting large game. After the betrayal of Piltdown, the moderate interest held in the river gravels of the region waned and the finds from the interfluves were largely restricted to isolated handaxes perceived as offering little research potential.

Changing Technological Practice and the Exploitation of Levallois Technology 7. The Middle Palaeolithic Settlement History of the British Isles 8. This book examines the immense technological variation that is apparent between British sites, in order to present a picture of changing human behaviour and the emergence of European Neanderthal adaptations. The finds from a trial excavation comprise flakes, blades, cores and retouched tools. We discuss the character of the British record, and offer an account of Neanderthal behaviour, settlement systems and technological practices at the northwestern edge of their known Upper Pleistocene range.

It is now widely accepted that by the later Middle Palaeolithic Neanderthals possessed a wide range of social and practical skills. The E-mail message field is required. This paper draws upon examples from substantive field and laboratory research to examine the methods and theoretical perspectives of Cuban archaeology since the Revolution, focusing on the period from 1962 until the collapse of the Soviet Union. She is particularly interested in the development of classic Neanderthal behaviours during the earlier Middle Palaeolithic and especially the organisation of technological behaviour in the landscape. As a geographically constrained study area, the progressively robust British chronometric framework now allows previously invisible patterning in technological behaviour, hominid habitat preference and demography during this period to be investigated.

Stratigraphic data support this Early Upper Palaeolithic age, and also help to validate the separation of material within the old collection into Middle Palaeolithic, Early Upper Palaeolithic and Mesolithic. New fieldwork in 2007 and 2008 in an area directly adjacent to the original site located further Upper Palaeolithic material, in addition to Middle Palaeolithic and Mesolithic material, situated within a series of fissures. The PhD research aims to create a broad and simultaneously in-depth understanding of the effectiveness and use of plain wooden spears as hunting weapons during the Middle Pleistocene. Reviews Superbly illustrated, it is an excellent introduction to middle palaeolithic technology and neanderthal behaviour, and will be well thumbed by specialists. A number of colonization models have been proposed to explain the prehistoric peopling of the Bahamas archipelago from the Greater Antilles. In fact, so much has happened during the past 5 years that it is impossible to review everything in a single article.

Товар может иметь признаки легкого износа, но находится в полном эксплуатационном состоянии и функционирует должным образом. Indeed, there has been more discussion of the absence of humans from Britain than of what they did when they were present. The Development of Neanderthal Behaviours in Early Middle Palaeolithic Europe; 6. The latter category consists predominantly of handaxes, but a few side-scrapers and backed knives are also present.

As a geographically constrained study area, the progressively robust British chronometric framework now allows previously invisible patterning in technological behaviour, hominid habitat preference and demography during this period to be investigated. Alternate theories of population movements and regional differences in artifact assemblages during the preceramic are discussed. Despite its obvious importance, its analysis has been hindered by several factors resulting from its early excavation. A major implication of these results is that current approaches to reconstruct prehistoric knapping strategies are overlooking significant sources of variation. A clearer understanding of these earliest weapons in turn aids understanding of Middle Pleistocene human behaviours. The Middle Palaeolithic Settlement History of the British Isles 8.

The Middle Palaeolithic Settlement History of the British Isles 8. The collection of flintwork from the site of Beedings, West Sussex England contains by far the largest number of stone tools from the earliest Upper Palaeolithic of Britain, and is one of the two largest assemblages of its type in Europe. This model incorporates the articulation of palaeoclimatic push factors, economic pull factors, ease of transport factors and shallow bank navigation. As a geographically constrained study area, the progressively robust British chronometric framework now allows previously invisible patterning in technological behaviour, hominid habitat preference and demography during this period to be investigated. It is now widely accepted that by the later Middle Palaeolithic Neanderthals possessed a wide range of social and practical skills. Wider implications for the preservation of open-air Palaeolithic sites in the region are also considered.

Taphonomic analysis indicates a mechanism for site formation, and accounts for the exceptional preservation of this Palaeolithic archaeology. The site is situated near the northern limit of the occupation range of Middle Palaeolithic hominins, and the lithic assemblage is comparable to that from several other sites in the northern part of the North European Plain. Owing to the relative poverty of the record and historical difficulties in dating and correlating archaeological sites, the British Late Middle Palaeolithic has, until recently, received scant attention, and has largely been regarded as the poor man of Europe, especially by British archaeologists. The first part of the paper provides an archipelagic overview of the regional environmental and cultural diversity in conjunction with references to recent archaeological research. Here we provide an overview of the excavation and details of the archaeological context within which further flint artefacts were found.
