The Natufian Chronological Scheme –: New Insights and their Implications

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Archaeological remains cannot tell the story of the process of change. They are comparable to a series of photographs depicting “frozen” moments in time, isolated points in a progressive, ongoing reality. Looking at material remains is like thumbing through a photo album and noticing differences from picture to picture, without knowing all the changes that occurred in the intervening time span. It is thus essential to link the archaeological remains by means of a chronological scheme to enable the reconstruction of cultural dynamics through time.Archaeological research has long engaged in producing the most accurate chronology for the various stages
