      The Near East forms the geographic crossroads between Africa, Asia and Europe and was certainly a main route for the dispersal of Homo erectusinto Eurasia. The study of Lower Paleolithic sites in this region and in the neighboring Caucasus area sheds some light on several potential colonization events. Sites such as ‘Ubeidiya (Jordan Valley) and Dmanisi (Georgia) suggest the early Cited by: The aim of this chapter is to provide basic evidence for the impact of climatic fluctuations on human cultures in southwest Asia during the terminal Pleistocene and early Holocene.

    Paleontology or palaeontology is the study of prehistoric life forms on Earth through the examination of plant and animal fossils. This includes the study of body fossils, tracks, burrows, cast-off parts, fossilised feces, palynomorphs and chemical residues. Because humans have encountered fossils for millennia, paleontology has a long history both before and after becoming formalized as a science. This article records significant discoveries and events related to paleontology .
