'Bar-Yosef O, 1999: Lower paleolithic sites in south-western Asia - evidence for [out of Africa] movements. Anthropologie (Brno) 37, 1: 51-69'.
This paper discusses the paleoanthropological and archaeological data on the lower Pleistocene hominid presence from Africa and Western Eurasia - especially the Levant and nearby Caucasus. Evidence from the dated sites, fossils, and artifactual assemblages in this region strongly suggests that the evolution of Homo erectus in Eurasia included numerous migration, colonization, and extinction events, which resulted in various regional discontinuities of the paleoanthopological record.
