📒Arrowheads Of The Neolithic Levant ✍ Avi Gopher
📝Arrowheads of the Neolithic Levant Book Synopsis : A multi-dimensional seriation analysis of arrowhead assemblages from Neolithic sites in the Levant is presented. An attempt is made to correlate the relative dating obtained by seriation with stratigraphie evidence and available C-14 dates. The implications of the analysis for the study of diffusion processes and sub-regional contacts is also discussed.
📒The Oxford Handbook Of The Archaeology Of The Levant ✍ Margreet L. Steiner
📝The Oxford Handbook of the Archaeology of the Levant Book Synopsis : This Handbook aims to serve as a research guide to the archaeology of the Levant, an area situated at the crossroads of the ancient world that linked the eastern Mediterranean, Anatolia, Mesopotamia, and Egypt. The Levant as used here is a historical geographical term referring to a large area which today comprises the modern states of Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, western Syria, and Cyprus, as well as the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and the Sinai Peninsula. Unique in its treatment of the entire region, it offers a comprehensive overview and analysis of the current state of the archaeology of the Levant within its larger cultural, historical, and socio-economic contexts. The Handbook also attempts to bridge the modern scholarly and political divide between archaeologists working in this highly contested region. Written by leading international scholars in the field, it focuses chronologically on the Neolithic through Persian periods - a time span during which the Levant was often in close contact with the imperial powers of Egypt, Anatolia, Assyria, Babylon, and Persia. This volume will serve as an invaluable reference work for those interested in a contextualised archaeological account of this region, beginning with the 'agricultural revolution' until the conquest of Alexander the Great that marked the end of the Persian period.
📒Revolutions In The Desert ✍ Steven Rosen
📝Revolutions in the Desert Book Synopsis : Revolutions in the Desert investigates the development of pastoral nomadism in the arid regions of the ancient Near East, challenging the prevailing notion that such societies left few remains appropriate for analytic study. Few prior studies have approached the deeper past of desert nomadic societies, which have been primarily recognized only as a complement to the study of sedentary agricultural societies in the region. Based on decades of archaeological field work in the Negev of southern Israel, both excavations and surveys, and integrating materials from adjacent regions, Revolutions in the Desert offers a deeper and more dynamic view of the rise of herding societies beyond the settled zone. Rosen offers the first archaeological analysis of the rise of herding in the desert, from the first introduction of domestic goats and sheep into the arid zones, more than eight millennia ago, to the evolution of more recent Bedouin societies. The adoption of domestic herds by hunter-gatherer societies, contemporary with and peripheral to the first farming settlements, revolutionized all aspects of desert life, including subsistence, trade, cult, social organization, and ecology. Inviting processual comparison to the agricultural revolution and the secondary spread of domestication beyond the Near East, this volume traces the evolution of nomadic societies in the archaeological record and examines their ecological, economic and social adaptations to the deserts of the Southern Levant. With maps and illustrations from the author’s own collection, Revolutions in the Desert is a thoughtful and engaging approach to the archaeology of desert nomadic societies.
📒Life In Neolithic Farming Communities ✍ Ian Kuijt
📝Life in Neolithic Farming Communities Book Synopsis : Drawing on both the results of recent archaeological research and anthropological theory, leading experts synthesize current thinking on the nature of and variation within Neolithic social arrangements. The authors analyze archaeological data within a range of methodological and theoretical perspectives to reconstruct key aspects of ritual practices, labor organization, and collective social identity at the scale of the household, community, and region.
📒The Harra And The Hamad ✍ A. V. G. Betts
📝The Harra and the Hamad Book Synopsis : This book is the first in a series of reports on fieldwork carried out n eastern Jordan, 1979-1991. It presents evidence for the Epipalaeolithic period docused on the site of Dhuweila, a hunting camp used in the 7th and 6th millennia BC, and surrounding camps making use of desert 'kites', their chipped and ground stone industries, animal remains, botanical remains and rock art. Also includes an edited summary of work by Uzbek and Russian scholars on hunting traps and animal migration patterns on the Ustiurt plateau in Uzbekistan.
📒The Neolithic Site Of Abu Ghosh ✍ Hamoudi Khalaily
📝The Neolithic site of Abu Ghosh Book Synopsis : The Neolithic site of Abu Ghosh is located in the Judean Hills, west of Jerusalem. Situated on a wide terrace on the western bank of a small wadi traversing the modern village of Abu Ghosh, the northern area of the site was severely damaged by construction work in the early 1990s. This report details the salvage excavation of 1995, conducted by the authors on behalf of the Israel Antiquities Authority. The chapters deal accordingly with: Location; geology; architecture; lithic assemblage; use-wear analysis of sickles and glossed pieces; groundstone assemblage; pottery; small finds; human remains and fauna.
📒The Eastern Wing Of The Fertile Crescent ✍ Stefan Karol Kozłowski
📝The eastern wing of the Fertile Crescent Book Synopsis : Plant and animal domestication was important in revolutionising the Greater Mesopotamian region. Archaeological evidence has been used to assess and trace the transformation from mobile foragers to the emergence of urban centres. However, the significance of changing stone tool technologies has received little attention in this regard. Koslowski uses lithic evidence to identify and describe various cultures within this region and to trace their development. He studies the raw materials, methods of knapping, types of blanks, retouched pieces and the function of various artefacts. 'His pioneering volume will be appreciated by many who devot their research to achieving a better understanding of the evolutionary threshold that inevitably heralded the emergence of urban civilizations'.

📝The lithic industries of Zahrat adh Dhra 2 and the pre pottery Neolithic period of the Southern Levant Book Synopsis : The site of Zahrat Adh-Dhra '2 (ZAD 2) is located on the eastern side of the Lisan Peninsula of the Dead Sea and has been the subject of excavation from 1999 to 2002. By analysing the lithic assemblage from this site, Sayej seeks to explore the nature of early Neolithic societies in this area and provide an understanding of their subsistence practcies. By studying the lithics from ZAD 2 in terms of lithic technology, typology, microwear analysis and experimental work (plus dating evidence), and comparing these with other sites in the southern Levant. Sayej is in a position to critique the division of material culture into PPNA and EPPNB phases, arguing that the latter is ill-defined and most probably redundant.
📒The Earliest Prehistory Of Cyprus ✍ Stuart Swiny
📝The Earliest Prehistory of Cyprus Book Synopsis : A collection of papers focusing on the remarkable recent developments concerning the earliest prehistory of Cyprus. They are presented by scholars immediately involved in research of this period, who discuss the evidence and its interpretation. The subjects covered include the recent findings from the period of earliest colonization of the island and the formation of Neolithic sedentary communities. There is also a review of evidence from the Levant. This collection of papers is essential reading for prehistorians and archaeologists working in the region.

📒Lithic Technology Of Neolithic Syria ✍ Yoshihiro Nishiaki
📝Lithic Technology of Neolithic Syria Book Synopsis : The analysis and interpretation of lithics and lithic technology is an important part of reconstructing cultural development in prehistoric societies. In this study, Yoshihiro Nishiaki examines lithic material from four Neolithic sites in Syria (Douara Cave II, Tell Damishliyya, Tell Nebi Mend and Tell Kashkashok II) as well as more general discussions of methodology, chaîne opératoire , and the behavioural aspects of lithic procurement and production. Concomitant changes in subsistence, settlement, social and economic organisation are also discussed within the context of the Neolithic period in the Near East.
