About this book

The study of the Neolithic transition constitutes a major theme in prehistoric research. The process of economic change, from foraging to farming, involved one of the main transformations in human behavior patterns. This volume focuses on investigating the neolithization process at the periphery of one of the main routes in the expansion of the Neolithic in Europe: the Western Mediterranean region. Recent advances in radiocarbon dating, mathematical and computational models, archaeometric analysis and biomolecular techniques, together with new archaeological discoveries, provide novel insights into this topic.

This volume is organized into five sections:

·         new discoveries and new ideas about the Mediterranean Neolithic

·         reconstructing times and modeling processes

·         landscape interaction: farming and herding

·         dietary subsistence of early farming communities

·         human dispersal mechanisms and cultural transmission

This volume will also provide new empirical data to help readers assess different theoretical frameworks and narratives which underlie the models proposed to explain the expansion of farming from the Middle East into Europe.
