Human Paleontology and Prehistory

Author: Assaf Marom
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9783319466460
Release Date: 2017-01-24
Genre: Social Science

The aim of the book is to present original and though-provoking essays in human paleontology and prehistory, which are at the forefront of human evolutionary research, in honor of Professor Yoel Rak (a leading scholar in paleoanthropology).​ ​The volume presents a collection of original papers contributed by many of Yoel's friends and colleagues from all over the globe. Contributions from experts around the globe fall roughly into three broad categories: Reflections on some of the broad theoretical questions of evolution, and especially about human evolution; the early hominins, with special emphasis on Australopithecus afarensis and Paranthropus; and the Neanderthals, that contentious group of our closest extinct relatives. Within and across these categories, nearly every paper addresses combinations of methodological, analytical and theoretical questions that are pertinent to the whole human evolutionary time span. This book will appeal most to scholars and advanced students in paleoanthropology, human paleontology and prehistoric archaeology.

Quaternary of the Levant

Author: Yehouda Enzel
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 9781316841846
Release Date: 2017-04-27
Genre: Science

Quaternary of the Levant presents up-to-date research achievements from a region that displays unique interactions between the climate, the environment and human evolution. Focusing on southeast Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Israel, it brings together over eighty contributions from leading researchers to review 2.5 million years of environmental change and human cultural evolution. Information from prehistoric sites and palaeoanthropological studies contributing to our understanding of 'out of Africa' migrations, Neanderthals, cultures of modern humans, and the origins of agriculture are assessed within the context of glacial-interglacial cycles, marine isotope cycles, plate tectonics, geochronology, geomorphology, palaeoecology and genetics. Complemented by overview summaries that draw together the findings of each chapter, the resulting coverage is wide-ranging and cohesive. The cross-disciplinary nature of the volume makes it an invaluable resource for academics and advanced students of Quaternary science and human prehistory, as well as being an important reference for archaeologists working in the region.

The Middle and Upper Paleolithic Archeology of the Levant and Beyond

Author: Yoshihiro Nishiaki

ISBN: 9789811068263
Release Date: 2017-12-06
Genre: Social Science

This volume is a compilation of results from sessions of the Second International Conference on the Replacement of Neanderthals by Modern Humans, which took place between November 30 and December 6, 2014, in Hokkaido, Japan. Similar to the first conference held in 2012 in Tokyo, the 2014 conference (RNMH2014) aimed to compile the results of the latest multidisciplinary approaches investigating the issues surrounding the replacement of Neanderthals by modern humans. The results of the sessions, supplemented by off-site contributions, center on the archeology of the Middle and Upper Paleolithic of the Levant and beyond. The first part of this volume presents recent findings from the Levant, while the second part focuses on the neighboring regions, namely, the Caucasus, the Zagros, and South Asia. The 13 chapters in this volume highlight the distinct nature of the cultural occurrences during the Middle and Upper Paleolithic periods of the Levant, displaying a continuous development as well as a combination of lithic traditions that may have originated in different regions. This syncretism, which is an unusual occurrence in the regions discussed in this volume, reinforces the importance of the Levant as a region for interpreting the RNMH phenomenon in West Asia.

Interkulturelle Kommunikation

Author: Dagmar Kumbier
Publisher:
ISBN: 3499620960
Release Date: 2006
Genre: Intercultural communication

Die kommunikative Brücke zwischen uns und anderen wackelt bedenklich, wenn wir kulturelle Unterschiede nicht kennen und berücksichtigen. Interkulturelle Kommunikation setzt sich zum Ziel, die Differenzen zu erkunden, die sprachliche Äußerungen einbetten und den Transfer von sachlichen Inhalten manchmal schwierig machen. Die für den einen Partner "normale" Rede- und Verhaltenspraxis stößt beim anderen auf Unverständnis oder tiefes Misstrauen wenn Spielregeln seiner Kultur verletzt werden. Dieser Sammelband zeigt an Beiträgen und Beispielen aus unterschiedlichen Praxisfeldern (Familie, Kinder, Politik, Wirtschaft), wie Schwierigkeiten der Interkulturellen Kommunikation analysiert und gelöst werden können. Dabei soll inhaltlich, methodisch und mit Blick auf die unterschiedlichen Kulturen ein weiter Bogen gespannt werden.

ABU SIMBEL

Release Date: 2010
Genre: Social Science

Am Ufer des Nassersees stehen inmitten karger Landschaft die gewaltigen Felsentempel Ramses' II. und seiner Gemahlin Nefertari. Monumentalität und verschwenderische Pracht zum Ruhme des ägyptischen Pharao. Um die steingewordene Ewigkeit vor den Fluten des Nil zu retten, wurden die Tempel in den 1960er Jahren in einer von der UNESCO unterstützten Aktion unter den Augen einer interessierten Weltöffentlichkeit stückweise versetzt: Ihr ursprünglicher Standort ist heute vom Nassersee überflutet. Schon die Forschungsgeschichte um Abu Simbel von den ersten Untersuchungen vor Ort bis zu jüngsten Erkenntnissen archäologischer Forschung ist eine spannende Lektüre. Die zahlreichen grossformatigen Abbildungen schliesslich erwecken die Bilderwelt der Pharaonenzeit vor den Augen der Leser zu neuem Leben.
