Northwest African prehistory : recent work ; new results and interpretations

[Congrès, colloques, réunions]

du 20 au 23 juin 2012

The pace of research, and the range of questions being investigated in the Pleistocene and Holocene prehistory of the Maghreb has increased dramatically in the past decade, especially as new scholars from Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco begin to pursue research. Major re-investigations at Haua Fteah, Taza, Aïn Hanech, Afalou, Taforalt and elsewhere, along with new research by teams from Europe working in collaboration with Maghreb investigators in Tunisia and Morocco, are changing our views on the importance of northwest Africa during prehistory, and especially with regards to the relationships between Europe and the Maghreb during the Late Pleistocene and the emergence of anatomically modern Homo sapiens.
To date, 21 papers have been proposed for this workshop.
