This volume summarizes the Stone Age research of the University of Tübingen and the Syrian Department of Antiquities from 1995-2005 in the Damascus Province of Syria. The book contains information on 400 newly discovered Paleolithic localities and the results of the excavations at Baaz Rockshelter and Kaus Kozah Cave.
… this is a volume for the regional specialist. The multi-year study furnishes new, important information, especially for Early Neolithic, Late Epipaleolithic, and Middle Paleolithic intervals.
