Cultural-Historic Framework

  • Donald O. Henry
Part of the Interdisciplinary Contributions to Archaeology book series (IDCA)


A brief overview of the cultural-historic framework by which the results of the investigation were organized is presented at this point for two reasons. First, in following a hierarchical or taxonomic structure that departs somewhat from traditionally held schemes for the Levant, some discussion of unit building seems warranted. But perhaps more importantly from a practical perspective, a concise description of the cultural-historic relationships of the assemblages and the nature of the data-sets upon which these relationships were determined seems especially important to understanding a framework spanning six major prehistoric periods and much of the Upper Pleistocene.
