  • Few would now dispute the reality of a major dispersal of anatomically and genetically modern human populations across Europe and western Asia centered broadly within the period from ca. 45,000 to 35,000 BP in terms of conventional radiocarbon dating, or between ca. 47,000 and 41,000 BP in terms of the most recent calibration of the radiocarbon timescale. 1 This can be supported equally from the direct skeletal evidence recovered from European and Near Eastern sites and from the closely similar… CONTINUE READING
