      The 13 chapters in this volume highlight the distinct nature of the cultural occurrences during the Middle and Upper Paleolithic periods of the Levant, displaying a continuous development as well as a combination of lithic traditions that may have originated in different regions. This syncretism, which is an unusual occurrence in the regions 5/5(1). The Middle Paleolithic of the East Mediterranean Levant Lebanon, Syria, Israel, and Jordan. Evidence from the Levant has long sup- cave sediments from the time of the Middle–Upper Paleolithic transition in the southern Levant (Bar-Yosef and Vandermeersch, ).

      This month's featured video is Dr. Pardis Sabeti's talk on "Evolutionary Forces in Humans and Pathogens" from our Survival Symposium. This symposium focused on evolution and the many challenges facing the survival of our species. Middle and Upper Paleolithic Tool Traditions The Middle and Upper Paleolithic were two very unique time periods in human history and development. Not only did the cultures that are recognizable today begin to take shape, there was a huge jump in the technology that early humans used during these time periods.

The Middle Paleolithic (MP) is often seen as a long prelude to creative "revolution" of the Upper Paleolithic (UP). Yet, recent research in the East Mediterranean Levant indicates this was a period of dynamic evolutionary change. The "Levant" refers to the region encompassing the modern states of Lebanon, Syria, Israel, and Jordan.

Surprisingly, it stimulated little discussion, despite some obvious weaknesses. Mellars's article is well organized and cogently written.

It therefore makes an effective baseline from which debate can proceed. The Middle to Upper Paleolithic transition is a key period of change in the prehistory of the Old World and one of the most studied issues in paleoanthropology, as the nature of the transition(s) is still, after at least a century of archaeological research, largely by: The Middle Paleolithic Age is majorly viewed as a transition rather than an independent period.

However, the production of completely new tools qualifies the period to by an independent phase. The most popular tool from the period is the Mousterian‘ ’. During oxygen isotope stage 3, the widespread emergence of Early Upper Paleolithic technologies signals significant changes in human behaviors.

These profound changes are usually attributed to new major dispersals of Anatomically Modern Humans in. Transitions in the lithic archaeological record are subject to diverse questions.

These include whether this record is characterized by gradualism or by punctuated changes; how different terminologies, for example, the Middle Stone Age and the Middle.

The results of the sessions, supplemented by off-site contributions, center on the archeology of the Middle and Upper Paleolithic of the Levant and beyond.

The first part of this volume presents recent findings from the Levant, while the second part focuses on the neighboring regions, namely, the Caucasus, the Zagros, and South Asia.
