Levantine fossil record

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary


Throughout human evolution, the Levant has served as the major land corridor for hominins migrating from Africa. Although human fossils have been discovered in many parts of the Old World, few geographical areas are as important to advancing our understanding of human evolution as the Levant. The current chapter describes the major fossils that have been discovered in the Levant from the Lower Pleistocene to the beginning of the Holocene; and it presents some of the major questions associated with them.
