Abstract

The Mesolithic of Western Central Asia has traditionally been considered as a discrete phenomenon, consisting of several unrelated stages. The genesis of the Early Mesolithic was thought to have been a result of population migrations from the Near East, while the genesis of the Late Mesolithic was explained in terms of migrations/diffusions from the Near and Middle East. The regional Upper Palaeolithic complexes were not considered as a possible source for the local Mesolithic because of their archaic appearance and the lack of technical and typological traits characteristic of the Mesolithic. The data obtained in 2005-2014 provide a different perspective on the cultural processes that took place in the Upper Palaeolithic and Mesolithic of Western Central Asia.
