The Siberian Altai region is home to a number of recently excavated Middle and Upper Paleolithic stratified sites. The data yielded from these sites provide key evidence illustrating changes in material culture corresponding to the transition from the Middle to the Upper Paleolithic. A detailed examination of the early development of Upper Paleolithic technical traditions in the Altai, this book presents a chrono-cultural model that combines archeological, environmental, genetic, and paleontological data and represents a major contribution to our understanding of the population growth during the Late Pleistocene in Asia.
