Continuity in the Epipaleolithic of Northern Africa with Emphasis on the Maghreb
This article is primarily a review and reinterpretation of the Epipaleolithic pre-history of the Maghreb. However, in view of the similarities to other parts of North Africa, we include some discussion of areas outside the Maghreb proper, specifically Cyrenaica and the Nile Valley. Research on Maghreb prehistory hasbeen undertaken for close to a century. The vast majority of published information is in French and is not always familiar to or well understood by Anglophone scholars. Archaeology in the Maghreb has been dominated by a typological approach, both in terms of artifacts and human skeletal remains. This approach has provided most of the data from which our re-interpretations are derived. It has also, inevitably perhaps, fostered the division of prehistory into segments that, while they may have some reality for the archaeologist trying to under-stand the geographic and chronological patterning of remains, do not necessarily tell one very much about the cultural interrelationships of the people those remains represent. It is our basic contention in this essay that one should never propose direct correspondences between archaeological industries and ethnic groups, or “races,” without clear and indisputable evidence. Such correspondences have been made many times for the Maghreb and it is this, if nothing else, that we hope to show to be unlikely. Our basic premise throughout this essay is that differences have been emphasized over similarities and that theidentification of distinctions has been the preferred method of describing variability in the prehistoric record.
It’s got a lot of information on North African blade industries on it.
