Description

With the long-awaited publication of these three volumes we have the first thorough documentation of one of the most important prehistoric sites in the Mediterranean, that of Franchthi Cave in the Argolid Peninsula of Greece." —American Anthropologist

... an exceptional contribution to the hitherto very inadequate knowledge of this period in Greece." —Antiquity

... the archaeological and paleoenvironmental data from Franchthi Cave are unique in providing a site-specific record of the cultural responses to great environmental changes." —Quarterly Research

Perlès's study is impressive in the systematic application of a well-thought-out methodology." —`w`

This study of the thousands of chipped/flaked stone tools found in the excavations at Franchthi Cave is the first of its kind in Greek archaeology, if not in the whole of southeastern European prehistory.This is the second of three comprehensive reports on the flaked stone industries from the site, focusing on the Mesolithic.
