Excavations at Tepe Yahya, Iran, 1967-1975, Volume IV: The Iron Age Settlement

Magee, Peter

Tepe Yahya provides a stratigraphic sequence that stretches some 6,000 years, from the Neolithic period to the early centuries ad. As a result, the site is critical for understanding cultural processes in southeastern Iran. In this fifth volume of results of the excavations at Tepe Yahya, Magee presents evidence from the Iron Age occupation of the site.

Stiner, Mary C.

A decade of zooarchaeological fieldwork went into Mary Stiner’s pathbreaking analysis of changes in human ecology from the early Mousterian period through the end of Paleolithic cultures in the Levant. Stiner employs a comparative approach to understanding early human behavioral and environmental change, based on a detailed study of fourteen bone assemblages from Hayonim Cave and Meged Rockshelter in Israel’s Galilee.

Kebara Cave, Mt. Carmel, Israel, Part I: The Middle and Upper Paleolithic Archaeology

Bar-Yosef, Ofer
Meignen, Liliane

The recent excavations at Kebara Cave in Israel have provided data crucial for understanding the cognitive and behavioral differences between archaic and modern humans. In this first of two volumes, the authors discuss site formation processes, subsistence strategies, land-use patterns, and intrasite organization. The research at Kebara Cave allows archaeologists to document the variability observed in the strategies of the Late Middle and early Upper Paleolithic periods in the Levant.

50.Cover: Holon: A Lower Paleolithic Site in Israel

Holon: A Lower Paleolithic Site in Israel

Chazan, Michael
Horwitz, Liora Kolska

Excavations at the open-air site of Holon, carried out by Tamar Noy between 1963 and 1970, were some of the first successful salvage projects in the region. This volume brings together the results of interdisciplinary research on the site of Holon--geology, dating, archaeology, paleontology, taphonomy, and spatial analysis--by a team of leading international researchers. This book will be an essential point of reference for students and specialists working in the archaeology of human evolution.
