About this book

Provides a well-documented, geographically diverse overview of Stone Age sites in the wet tropics. Mercador provides the first synthesis of archaeological research in early foraging sites across the rainforest zone, and shows that tropical forests could harbour important clues to human evolution, the origins of modern behaviour, cultural diversity, and human impact on tropical ecosystems.
