Summary This collection consists of 54 documents, eight in French, and the rest in English. The documents discuss the Epipaleolithic tradition in Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordon, Lebanon, Palestinian Autonomous Areas, Syria, and Turkey from 45,000 BP-10,100 BP. Gilead summarizes the Upper Paleolithic in the Levant, covering the time period of 45,000 BP to 13,000 BP, Goring-Morris provides an overview of the various archaeological subtraditions from 20,000 to 10,000 BP, Henry summarizes the time period from about 15,000 BP-10,100 BP, and an overview of the Natufian subtradition can be found in Perlés and Valla. Goring-Morris summarizes the Harifian, a very late Epipaleolithic subtradition. Bar-Yosef also summarizes the archaeology from 24,000 BP-10,000 BP while exploring the origins of agriculture. Baruch and Leroi-Gourhan both use pollen evidence to describe the paleoclimate. Most of the documents discuss the Natufian time period (12,500 BP-10,250 BP). Belfer-Cohen provides a definition for the term Natufian. Byrd looks at its settlement and subsistence strategies. Kaufman looks at the social reasons for the shift to sedentism seen during the Natufian. Stone tools from two sites in northern Syria are the subject of Olszewski's two papers. Most of the papers are from a conference on the Natufian. Bar-Yosef describes the conference and the submitted papers in his introduction. Several are site descriptions or describe the findings from surveys (Copeland, Schroeder, Bar-Yosef, Valla, Edwards, Ronen, Crabtree, Betts, Garrard, Byrd, and Cauvin). Others concentrate on the Epipaleolithic section of the site of Abu Hureyra in Syria and the results of their analyses (Moore, Olszewski, Olsen, Hillman, and Roitel). Faunal data is used to examine sedentism, hunting practices, diet, and animal domestication among other things (Tchernov, Cope, Helmer, Pichon, and Davis). Occasionally, plant remains are found in Epipaleolithic sites. Colledge discusses one site and provides guidelines so that more might be found. Human remains are used to provide data on diet, food processing, and residence patterns (Sillen; Belfer-Cohen and Smith). Bone tools are the subject of Campana and Stordeur; while Sellars examines lithic tools. Unger-Hamilton and Anderson both used microwear analysis of stone tools to determine what plant species were harvested with them. Noy describes decorative art in the Mount Carmel area while Belfer-Cohen focuses on art objects from Hayonim Cave. Ornaments from the end of the Natufian are examined by Maréchal. Marine shells, which include shell ornaments, were examined by Reese and Bar-Yosef.
