Before Farming

Hunter-gatherers of the Last Ice Age in northern Eurasia

recent research and old problems

Before Farming (2003), 2003, (2), 1–25.

Abstract

The initial colonisation of northern Eurasia by anatomically modern humans occurred during the Last Ice Age, c 40,000 years before present (BP). The maximum influx of groups of hunter-gatherers stemming from the west coincided with the Last Glacial Maximum, 24,000–18,000 BP. The eastbound migration was caused by environmental stress and inbreeding avoidance.
