Ashanti Coffee's insight:

basically, the PPNB people at Tell Halula practiced far more advanced burials than others at this time. Instead of horizontal burials, they did seated burials. Here, archeologists examine why.

Tree-Felling, Woodworking, and Changing Perceptions of the Landscape during the Neolithic and Chalcolithic Periods in the Southern Levant

Tree-Felling, Woodworking, and Changing Perceptions of the Landscape during the Neolithic and Chalcolithic Periods in the Southern Levant | Pre Pottery Neolithic Period | Scoop.it

Examination of 206 Neolithic and Chalcolithic bifaces from the southern Levant revealed that changes in form during the emergence of agropastoralism correlated with evolving land use practices, but new biface types also expressed altered social identities and perceptions of the environment. Nonfunctional groundstone pre-pottery Neolithic A (PPNA) bifaces seem to have served as social and status symbols, while flaked flint PPNA tranchet axes and chisels were used for carpentry rather than tree-felling. This pattern continued during the following early pre-pottery Neolithic B (EPPNB) period, but a new sharpening method, polishing, was used on a unique flint tranchet ax to strengthen its edge. By the MPPNB and LPPNB, heavier polished flint axes were used to clear forests for fields, grazing lands, wood fuel, and lumber. Sustainable forest management continued until the cumulative effects of tree-felling may have led to landscape degradation at the end of the PPNC. Adzes replace axes as heavy woodworking tools during the pottery Neolithic A (PNA) period, but by the PNB period, once again there are more carpentry tools than tree-felling bifaces. The trend is reversed again during the Chalcolithic, when the demand for fire wood, lumber, and cleared land seems to have increased during a time of emerging socioeconomic complexity.

Dorian Q Fuller's comment, April 24, 2013 11:52 AM
Nice study of changing axes and axe use (from microwear) showing that tree-felling rises in the later PPNB. A nice correlation with when crops are fully domesticated, the crop package has become more complete and when, therefore we can really think in terms of agriculture, some 2000 years or more after the start of early cutlivation. (On the cultivation side of things, see the discussion by Asout & Fuller in Vegetation history and Archaeobotany last year: http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs00334-011-0332-0

Evidence of Pre-Pottery Neolithic in Saudi Arabia

Evidence of Pre-Pottery Neolithic in Saudi Arabia | Pre Pottery Neolithic Period | Scoop.it

Pre-Pottery Neolithic assemblages are best known from the fertile areas of the Mediterranean Levant  with most research focussed on the internal cultural dynamics of the ‘core area’ of what is known as the Fertile Crescent.



The development of the Neolithic in Southwest Asia has long been seen as a pivotal phase in human evolution and history;  a cultural and economic ‘revolution’, which fundamentally transformed the relationship between humans and their environments, paving the way for population explosion, a shift towards sedentary settlement and a profound change in technology.

However there has been (for a variety of reasons) less research devoted towards understanding the interactions between the core and peripheral regions....  until now!
