Abstract

Documented Late Pleistocene hominin remains from the Mediterranean Levant are abundant and anatomically diverse. The status of these richly documented fossils has been extensively discussed by scholars, and the debate continues as to their phylogenetic relationships because of the anatomical mosaic formed by most of the cranial and skeletal features. All these Levantine human fossils, regardless of their anatomical features, are found in association with Levallois-dominated industries and offer no clear evidence of differences in settlement or cultural patterns. New dates and recent discoveries are challenging the classic model of replacement of one distinct human group by another.
