Relations between temperate Europe and the Mediterranean in later prehistory. Interaction spheres in prehistory.

The Explanation of Artifact Variability. Cultural transmission and culture change. The reasons for this lack of definition are twofold.

We are very grateful to the speakers and those who attended the session. They are used in order to make sense of potentially coherent assemblages of artefacts, from the Lower Palaeolithic to the onset of reflective literacy. Migration and the movement of southwestern peoples. In a similar vein, the rates and mechanisms of the dispersal of technical innovations in ceramics can provide the foundations for a broader discussion on the role of cultural innovation Chap. Founder effect, drift, and adaptive change in domestic crop use in early Neolithic Europe.

Congruent distribution of Neolithic painted pottery and ceramic figurines with Y-chromosome lineages. The desire to identify the actions of the individual eventually supplanted the desire to contextua- lise artefacts, resulting in the development of studies on cultural transmission e.
