Early human behaviour in global context : the rise and diversity of the Lower Palaeolithic record by M. D Petraglia( Book )

15 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Archaeological traces of the activities of our early tool-using ancestors are spread throughout the Old World, ranging over Africa, Eurasia and Eastern Asia. While field studies have documented that the material evidence is plentiful, we still know very little about the particular behaviours which resulted in the creation of the Lower Palaeolithic record. Early Human Behaviour in Global Context is a major first-of-its-kind synthesis, contributing greatly towards filling gaps in our knowledge about ancestral behaviours." "Early Human Behaviour in Global Context is the basic reference text for students and professionals interested in prehistory, Palaeolithic archaeology and palaeoanthropology, our ancestors and their place in the natural world."--Jacket

Toba Tephra across India, supplementary data to: Westgate, John A; Shane, Philip AR; Pearce, Nicholas JG; Perkins, William T; Korisettar, Ravi; Chesner, Craig A; Williams, Martin AJ; Acharyya, Subhrangsu K (1998): All Toba Tephra Occurrences across Peninsular India Belong to the 75,000 yr B.P. Eruption. Quaternary Research, 50(1), 107-112 by John A Westgate( )

A controversy currently exists regarding the number of Toba eruptive events represented in the tephra occurrences across peninsular India. Some claim the presence of a single bed, the 75,000-yr-old Toba tephra; others argue that dating and archaeological evidence suggest the presence of earlier Toba tephra. Resolution of this issue was sought through detailed geochemical analyses of a comprehensive suite of samples, allowing comparison of the Indian samples to those from the Toba caldera in northern Sumatra, Malaysia, and, importantly, the sedimentary core at ODP Site 758 in the Indian Ocean - a core that contains several of the earlier Toba tephra beds. In addition, two samples of Toba tephra from western India were dated by the fission-track method. The results unequivocally demonstrate that all the presently known Toba tephra occurrences in peninsular India belong to the 75,000 yr B.P. Toba eruption. Hence, this tephra bed can be used as an effective tool in the correlation and dating of late Quaternary sedimentary sequences across India and it can no longer be used in support of a middle Pleistocene age for associated Acheulian artifacts
