    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Critically examines previous statements concerning the nature of the Middle/Upper Paleolithic transition in W Europe. Several of Mellar's contentions are modified in light of methodological weaknesses and recently available data. it is suggested than many observed Middle/Upper Paleolithic differences are best understood with reference to a restructuring of social relations across the boundary. -from Author
