About this book

Includes reports on such well-known cave sites as Kebara, Hayonim, and Qafzeh, among others.

'I recommend this book as an excellent summary of this emerging reality.' American Scientist, 87 (1999) 'This text is a must for researchers in Old World prehistory or the origins of modern humans and would serve well as a classroom text on Eurasian prehistory.' Science Books and Films (September/October 1999)
