Explaining Diachronic Trends in Paleolithic Subsistence in Central Europe

Author(s): Nicholas Conard; Britt Starkovich

Year: 2015


This paper examines changing patterns of subsistence during the Lower, Middle and Upper Paleolithic of Central Europe. We present data on faunal assemblages from our excavations in Germany and look at the extent to which the selection and exploitation of prey reflects expectations from behavioral ecological models. We also consider how these faunal assemblages inform us about the evolution of social and economic behavior during the Middle and Late Pleistocene.
