Title: Neolithic Ashkelon
Publisher: Hebrew University of Jerusalem - Institute of Archaeology
Book Condition: New
This report aims to provide, for the first time, a detailed account of a PPNC site. Two factors give the site unique importance. First, a large horizontal exposure of about eight hundred square meters was achieved. Second, Ashkelon is essentially a single-period settlement, and consequently no mixture with earlier PPNB or later PN finds can have occurred. The extensive excavated area yielded a large sample of flint items, enabling a comprehensive analysis of the industry's technology and typology. The large number of mammal bones provides most of the data on subsistence and sheds light on the beginning of pastoral societies in the Near East. The assemblage of fish bones points to the beginning of intensive exploitation of marine resources. Human remains attest to mortuary practices. Exotic and other imported items indicate long-distance exchange networks. Altogether, the excavation of Ashkelon has brought to light a vivid picture of a PPNC community that lived on the Mediterranean coast some 9000 years ago. Bookseller Inventory # GARASHKEL
