The first Human settlements out Africa into Europe: a chronological perspective

Abstract : A reliable chronology for the oldest settlements of Europe from the Early to the beginning of the Middle Pleistocene is an important requirement for understanding human evolution and especially the routes used to reach Western Europe from Africa. The paucity of sites, plus the limited number of available samples for dating, and the many contexts which do not favor the use of particular dating methods, further complicate the picture. This contribution addresses several questions: Which dating methods are relevant for establishing the chronology of the main sites? Are the first settlements older than the Jaramillo event? Which routes were used to enter Europe? Were the earliest human occupations intermittent or continuous?
