Settlement Dynamics of the Middle Paleolithic and Middle Stone Age

Commission 27 examines the settlement systems of the Middle Paleolithic and Middle Stone Age. The commission welcomes empirically based and theoretical studies of settlement dynamics during the period spanning roughly 300,000 to 30,000 years ago. This is the critical period in which fully modern patterns of cultural behavior and modern human anatomy evolved. Papers may present social and economic analyses of all classes of archaeological data. Contributions from all parts of the Old World are welcome, and the scale of analysis can range from broad regional studies to specific analyses of single find horizons or sites.
