CARTA: Behaviorally Modern Humans: The Origin of Us – Ofer Bar-Yosef: Evidence for the Spread of Modern Humans

8/2/2013; 19 minutes

Ofer Bar-Yosef (Harvard Univ) briefly summarizes the archaeological evidence for the dispersals of modern humans into Eurasia avoiding the assumptions that these events, whether short or continuous, were triggered by climatic conditions or followed the dispersals of other mammals. He contends that tracing past human groups as they move through time and space in Eurasia relies on the recognition of how they made their stone tools. (#25396)
