Honors among Thieves: A Zooarchaeological study of Neandertal Ecology
By Stiner, Mary C.
Pp. xxii, 447; numerous black-and-white photos, line-drawings, and graphs. Publisher’s original wine red cloth, lettered in black and gilt on the spine, red and black dust jacket lettered in white and in black, sm 4to. The author uses ecological niche theory to analyze and interpret several Middle Paleolithic archaeological and paleontological sites in southern Europe. Her concern is with how the hunting, scavenging, and foraging behavior of Neandertals compared and contrasted with the subsistence behavior of large predators living in the region at the time – lions, hyenas and wolves. She concludes that Neandertals out-competed the large predators but were no match for the advanced hunting techniques of Homo sapiens who entered Europe about 40,000 years ago (from the jacket flap).
