The Palaeolithic period in mainland Greece (a book review)

In this book which is a landmark in the research of Prehistory in Southeastern Europe, locations are analytically presented according to their geographic region, climatic conditions and the alternation of steppes with lush vegetation. Tools are listed, events are chronicled and the inhabitants’ way of life is interpreted. Many similarities have been confirmed between the flora and fauna of their corresponding landscapes of Southern and Central Europe during the last ice age (Würm). Greek stonemasonry products, however, differing from their counterparts in Western Europe are called “atypa”, non-representative. Which of the two forms of expression did Southeastern Europe opt for in its choice between the rock drawings of Western Europe and the miniatures of Central and Eastern Europe?
