    The Aegean as a possible population dispersal route into Europe-L. Paleolithic

    Fascinating stuff...especially about the submerged areas of the Aegean.

    "The Balkan Peninsula lies on a key geographical location between Africa and Eurasia. The southern part of the Balkan Peninsula, referred to as the Aegean region, was a passageway for faunal migrations throughout the Pleistocene. Recent advances in the Lower Palaeolithic archaeology of Greece and in the research of the submerged landscapes of the Aegean region prompt a reconsideration of the biogeographical role of this area in Middle Pleistocene hominin settlement and expansion. In this paper, we articulate and elaborate on a working hypothesis, namely that the Aegean region was not a barrier during the Middle Pleistocene but instead it offered attractive lands for occupation and viable pathways for dispersal. Several methodological challenges emerge associated with the dynamic nature of the Aegean context. We propose an interdisciplinary approach to address the challenges. Using available archaeological and palaeogeographical evidence within a GIS-based framework, we seek to explore the ‘hominin factor’ in relation to the changing Aegean landscapes and geographical affordances. Shifting away from the ‘terrestrial Eurocentric’ point of view in the discussion of the patterns of early colonisation of Europe and the dispersal routes followed by hominins, we propose a revised understanding of early European settlement and its eastern gateways."

    Bacho Kiro is further north on the Balka Peninsula.
    The paleolithic DNA from Bacho Kiro is a dead end.

    I hardly think that's the end of the matter.
