DE EPIPALEOLITHISCHE HOEFDIEREN VAN KSAR 'AKIL, LIBANON
This paper presents some results of a reanalysis of the Epipalaeolithic vertebrate remains from Ksar 'Akil in the Lebanon. The excavated Epipalaeolithic faunal sample consists at most exclusively of ungulate remains. Fallow deer predominated throughout the sequence from levels V to I. In order of economic importance, this species was followed by wild goat, roe deer, wild boar and gazelle. The change from a pre-Kebaran to an early Kebaran lithic industry was accompanied by an economic shift, characterized by a relative increase of fallow deer. This shift probably reflects an increase in arboreal vegetation.
