    "Archaeological traces of the activities of our early tool-using ancestors are spread throughout the Old World, ranging over Africa, Eurasia and Eastern Asia. While field studies have documented that the material evidence is plentiful, we still know very little about the particular behaviours which resulted in the creation of the Lower Palaeolithic record. Early Human Behaviour in Global Context is a major first-of-its-kind synthesis, contributing greatly towards filling gaps in our knowledge about ancestral behaviours." "Early Human Behaviour in Global Context is the basic reference text for students and professionals interested in prehistory, Palaeolithic archaeology and palaeoanthropology, our ancestors and their place in the natural world."--BOOK JACKET
