You’re welcome to dip your toes in the Paleolithic

To better understand the complexities of Pleistocene cultural processes in eastern Eurasia, we study the Paleolithic archaeology of the Russian Altai region, Mongolia, North China, Xinjiang, Qinghai, and ethnic Tibet…the broad region referred to by geographers as Central and Inner Asia.

Situated on the eastern periphery of Central Asia, Mongolia was an important pathway for the migration of ancient human populations from the west to the east (and/or vice versa). Possible scenarios for the dispersal of ancient human populations in Mongolia are much more complicated than initially supposed due to the limited number of corridors penetrating natural barriers like the mountains of southern Siberia in the north and the arid mountain systems of the Mongolian and Gobi Altai ranges in the south.

Here you will find resources about the Paleolithic of Mongolia, including the history of archaeological investigations there, recent finds, links to publications in peer-reviewed journals, and descriptions of current projects.
