The authors of this quantity target at (1) reading the effect of this glacial-interglacial- glacial cycle on human team sizes, activities and distributions all through Africa; (2) investigating the macro- and micro-evolutionary approaches underpinning our species’ anatomical and behavioral evolution; and (3) surroundings an time table wherein Africa can make the most of, and finally give a contribution to, the more and more subtle theoretical and methodological palaeodemographic frameworks built on different continents.
