Using the archaeological record of the Greek Lower Palaeolithic period as a case study, Vangelis Tourloukis elaborates on a hitherto overlooked subject in Eurasian Early-Middle Pleistocene archaeology: the role of geomorphic processes in biasing archaeological distribution patterns of early human presence. This study identifies the current status of the Greek record, explains this status from a geoarchaeological and geomorphological perspective, and offers suggestions for further investigations in the field. The book also presents a conceptual model that can assist in interpreting and predicting early Palaeolithic site locations in tectonically active settings, such as those of the Mediterranean Basin.
