    Description:

    Egyptian site ca. 20 km south of Cairo on the west bank of the Nile. Memphis was founded at the beginning of the 1st Dynasty (ca. 2925 BCE), traditionally by King Menes or possibly by King Narmer, and served as the national capital during the Early Dynastic Period and the Old Kingdom (ca. 2925-ca. 2150 BCE). Thereafter it retained its political, economic, strategic, religious and artistic pre-eminence over three millennia, into the Roman period (30 BCE-395 CE). The major excavations of the Br…

    Abstract:

    À la fin de la campagne 2006 nous avons atteint le niveau archéologique de base sur les bandes G-H-I/12-13 du secteur sud de l’abri Castanet. Nous avons pu mettre en évidence des variations latérales de faciès du niveau, dû à la topographie du substrat de l’abri, aux activités anthropiques et également à des phénomènes post-dépositionnels. À la fin de la campagne 2006 la zone fouillée se présente comme suit (rapport Castanet 2006) : Une structure principale (114 : structure de combustion ?, I…

    Abstract:

    Despite a body of literature focusing on the functionality of modern and stylistically distinct projectile points, comparatively little attention has been paid to quantifying the functionality of the early stages of projectile use. Previous work identified a simple ballistics measure, the Tip Cross-Sectional Area, as a way of determining if a given class of stone points could have served as effective projectile armatures. Here we use this in combination with an alternate measure, the Tip Cros…

    Abstract:

    The “Origin of Modern Humans”, the “Great Leap Forward”, the “Human Revolution" –are but a few of the terms used to describe the Upper Paleolithic Period in Europe (45,000-11,000 BP). There, and in and contiguous parts of western Asia, the Upper Paleolithic Period preserves the first consistent evidence for several distinctively human behaviors (i.e., behaviors that appear to have evolved uniquely among Homo sapiens). These behaviors include systematic production of personal ornaments,…
