This volume compiles the papers presented at the seventh edition of the Conference on PPN Chipped and Ground Stone Industries of the Fertile Crescent, held in Barcelona from 14 to 17 February 2012. This series of conferences/workshops started nineteen years ago - the first meeting was organised in Berlin in 1993 - and is devoted to the study of the lithic record in the Pre-Pottery Neolithic of the Near East and neighbouring regions. The seventh of these conferences was organised by the Institució Milà i Fontanals (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas) and the Prehistory Department (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona). This volume includes a total number of 36 articles, covering a wide range of topics and disciplines related to lithic studies in the Levant over a long chronological time span (from the final stages of the Epipalaeolithic/Natufian to the Halaf period). The publication of the conference proceedings is thus an interesting synthesis of the current state of lithic studies on the Pre-Pottery Neolithic of the Near East, and consolidates this specific series of conferences as a key tool to maintain and stimulate the vitality of high quality research into the Near Eastern lithic record.

The significance of use-wear studies in archaeological research plays an important role as a proxy to prehistoric techno-cultural reconstruction. The present volume, divided into five thematic sections, includes chapters discussing various different research methods, techniques, chronologies and regions. As such, this volume will be of interest to both archaeologists and anthropologists.

The papers in this volume were originally collected for a symposium entitled "Recent Developments in Bone Tool Studies", organized for the 69th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology held in Montreal (Canada) on April 2nd, 2004. The objective of the symposium was to illustrate how recent developments in approaches, methods and techniques in worked bone studies can contribute to our understanding of basic problems encountered in archaeological research, with case studies from Europe and North America essentially, but also from Latin America and Oceania. Contents: 1) Bone Tools and Bone Technology: A Brief History (Genevieve M. LeMoine); 2) The Importance of the Palaeontological and Taphonomical Analyses for the Study of Bone Industries (Carole Vercoutere, Marylene Patou-Mathis and Giacomo Giacobini ); 3) Technology on Bone and Antler Industries: A Relevant Methodology for Characterizing Early Post-Glacial Societies (9th - 8th Millennium BC) (Eva David ); 4) Prehistoric Bone Tools and the Archaeozoological Perspective: Research in Central Europe (Alice M. Choyke and Jorg Schibler); 5) Methods, Means, and Results when Studying European Bone Industries (Alexandra Legrand and Isabelle Sidera); 6) The Use of Bone and Antler Tools: Two Examples from the Late Mesolithic in the Dutch Coastal Zone (Annelou van Gijn); 7) Stability and Change in Bone Tool Use Along the Middle Missouri, North Dakota (Janet Griffitts); 8) Bone Awls of the St.Lawrence Iroquoians: A Microwear Analysis (Christian Gates St-Pierre); 9) A Diachronic Study of Pre- and Post-Contact Antler, Bone and Shell Artifacts from New York State (Renee B. Walker); 10) Bone Disc Manufacturing Debris from Newfoundland to Antigua During the Historic Period (Walter E. Klippel and Bonnie E. Price); 11) Bone Tool Types and Microwear Patterns: Some Examples from the Pampa Region, South America (Natacha Buc and Daniel Loponte); 12) A Priliminary Typology of Perpendicularly Hafted Bone Tipped Tattooing Instruments: Toward a Technological History of Oceanic Tattooing 9Benoit Robitaille); 12) Bone Artifacts and their Importance to Archaeology (Sandra L.

This collection of 12 essays outlines what is now known about the origins and development of writing. The topics discussed include such precursors to writing as the tokens used for record-keeping in the Middle East, as well as cuneiform and Egyptian hieroglyphics.The alphabet is treated from its invention to its use in Arabic, Greek and Latin. Also presented are the writing systems of China and Middle America and two European systems, runes and ogham, that have been superseded by the Latin alphabet. An introduction surveys the subject and explores myths and theories on the invention of writing.

This study investigates questions about the nature and extent of early agriculture, by examining plant remains recovered from several sites. Chapters look at evidence, or lack of evidence for intensification of food gathering, reconstruction of the past environment of the study region, and the archaeobotanical data from the three main sites investigated: Cafer Hoyuk in southeast Turkey, Abu Hureya in noethern Syria, both on the Euphrates, and a steppe site in the El Kowm basin in Syria. Moulin concludes that the data can only offer tentative evidence for intensification of agricultural activity, but regional differences were clearly visible.
