These three volumes deal with the Iron Age grave materials from Magdalenska gora, excavated by the Duchess Paul Friedrich von Mecklenburg-Schwerin.Volume I presents data and analysis of the horse remains and human skeletal materials.
This volume presents data and analysis on settlement structure, subsistence patterns, manufacturing, and trade from the Peabody Museum’s four seasons of excavation at Hascerkeller, Bavaria, a typical Central European agricultural community at the start of the final millennium B.C.
During the 1988–89 field season, Fred Hiebert excavated part of Gonur in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture of Turkmenistan and the Institute of Archaeology in Moscow. Published here, the results provide a key to understanding the large corpus of material of the Bactro-Margiana Archaeological Complex extracted over the past 30 years from this and neighboring sites of the Oxus civilization.
During the Middle Neolithic, various populations ancestral to modern homo sapiens inhabited Africa, while Europe was homeland to the Neanderthals. Recent archaeological investigations have provided data showing that the abrupt transition from the Middle to the Upper Paleolithic, during which
In this definitive study, D.T. Potts describes the stratigraphy, architecture, ceramics, and chronology of the Tepe Yahya site and presents a full inventory of the small finds. Holly Pittman contributes comprehensive illustrations and a discussion of the seals and sealings, and Philip Kohl provides an analysis of the carved chlorite industry.
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.
In this volume, a team of scholars reports on the results of the investigations at Stránská skála, a complex of open-air loess sites in the Czech Republic. The volume presents in-depth studies that break new ground in our understanding of early modern humans in central Europe.
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.
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.
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.
