Mousterian fauna from Dederiyeh Cave and comparisons with fauna from Umm El Tlel and Douara Cave

C. Griggo


"Currently, Dederiyeh Cave (in northwest Syria) is one of the key sites in the Middle East for better understanding Neanderthal behavior.  The stratigraphic sequence, based on excavations carried out to date, and the large quantity of faunal remains recovered, make palaeoenvironmental and palaeoclimatic reconstructions possible.  Comparisons with assemblages recovered from the sites of Umm El Tlel and Douara Cave (central Syria) illustrate the significant aptitude of Neanderthals for environmental adaptation."
