Description

The Epirus region of northwest Greece has witnessed more dramatic changes of physical landscape than almost any other part of Europe. Tectonic activity has shaped a complex and dynamic topography, supplemented by the impact of a local ice sheet formed during the Glacial Maximum, and dramatic episodes of erosion triggered by changes of climate, vegetation and land use. These two volumes set out the history of Paleolithic occupation over the past 100,000 years, bringing together the full range of studies carried out between 1981 and 1993 as part of the Klithi Project. Volume 1 ("Excavation and Intra-Site Analysis at Klithi") covers the results of excavation at the Klithi rockshelter and analysis of finds, together with an introduction to the whole project and the AMD dating programme which played a key role in on-site and off-site interpretation. Volume 2 ("Klithi in its Local and Regional Setting") deals with archaeological results from other sites and palaeo-environmental and off-site studies, both locally at Klithi and in its immediate vicinity, and more widely within the region, concluding with a synthesis which brings together all the different strands of the investigation.
