“So not only was this curious bracelet [found at the Denisova cave] unequivocally the work of anatomically archaic human beings--the Denisovans-- but also it testified to their mastery of advanced manufacturing techniques in the Upper Paleolithic, many millennia ahead of the earliest use of these techniques in the Neolithic by our own supposedly "advanced" species, Homo.
In this paper, we present a history of pastoralism in the ancient Near East from the Neolithic through the Bronze Age. We describe the accretional development of pastoral technologies over eight millennia, including the productive breeding of domestic sheep, goats, and cattle in the early Neolithic and the subsequent domestication of animals used primarily for Cited by: 7.
The Neolithic Age. The Neolithic or New Stone Age (7 to 10, years ago) pertains to a stage of culture following the Paleolithic and is characterized by the use of polished stone implements, development of permanent dwell-ings, cultural advances such as pottery making, domestication of animals and plants, the cultivation of grainFile Size: KB.
Written by a lithic analyst and professional flintknapper, this book systematically examines variation in technology, typology, and industries for the Lower, Middle, and Upper Paleolithic; the Epipaleolithic; and Neolithic periods in the Near East.
It is extensively illustrated with drawings of Author: John J. Shea. Neolithic, final stage of cultural evolution or technological development among prehistoric humans.

In Europe, the Neolithic transition (8,–4, b. c.) from hunting and gathering to agricultural communities was one of the most important demographic events since the initial peopling of Europe by anatomically modern humans in the Upper Paleolithic (40, b.
c.).However, the nature and speed of this transition is a matter of continuing scientific debate Cited by: The Neolithic hunter-gathers in the late ice age were caught in a bind when the ice sheets receded and the herds of mega flora they had been living off of for thousands of years died off or moved north.
They were caught in what was a real case of Global Warming, and had to do something or perish. The Neolithic or New Stone Age was a period in human development from aro BCE until 3, BCE. Considered the last part of the Stone Age, the Neolithic period is signified by a progression in behavioral and cultural characteristics including the cultivation of wild and domestic crops and the use of domesticated animals.

Middle Neolithic (c BCE) Chinese pottery in this period is exemplified by deep-bodied jugs, red or red-brown vessels and amphorae.
The East was noted for its fine clay or sand-tempered pottery decorated with geometric markings, as well as appliqued bands. Neolithic Art in the Ancient Near East Around BCE, the ice that covered Europe during the Paleolithic period melted and the climate grew warmer.
This gave rise to the Mesolithic period, which was marked by intensified food gathering and the taming of the dog.
In BC, the farming villages spread widely in the Near East, all the way from the Fayum Basin along the shores of an ancient lake, at the west of the Nile River, through Palestine and Syria, over to Iraq and Iran.
Although the cultural traits in all of these areas were not exactly identical, but there was commonness in the culture. Syro-Cilicia. Other Archaeological Sites / The Neolithic of the Levant ( Page Book Online) Chapter 6: Neolithic 4 (Pages ) both regions which were unoccupied in Neolithic 3.
