The palaeolithic settlement of Asia [ Ouvrage] / Robin Dennell

Publication : Cambridge ; New York : Cambridge University press, 2009 Description : 1 vol. (XXIII-548 p.) : ill., cartes, fig. ; 26 cmCollection : Cambridge world archaeologyISBN : 9780521848664 ; 9780521613101.Langue : Anglais ; de résumé, Anglais. Auteur principal: Dennell, Robin W. Résumé : This book provides the first analysis and synthesis of the evidence of the earliest inhabitants of Asia before the appearance of modern humans 100,000 years ago. Asia has received far less attention than Africa and Europe in the search for human origins, but is no longer considered of marginal importance. Indeed, a global understanding of human origins cannot be properly understood without a detailed consideration of the largest continent. In this study, Robin Dennell examines a variety of sources, including the archaeological evidence, the fossil hominin record, and the environmental and climatic background from Southwest, Central, South, and Southeast Asia, as well as China. He presents an authoritative and comprehensive framework for investigations of Asia's oldest societies, challenges many long-standing assumptions about its earliest inhabitants, and places Asia centrally in the discussions of human evolution in the past two million years.
