Coastlines, Submerged Landscapes, and Human Evolution: The Red Sea Basin and the Farasan Islands
We examine some long-standing assumptions about the early use of coastlines and marine resources and their contribution to the pattern of early human dispersal, and focus on the southern Red Sea Basin and the proposed southern corridor of movement between Africa and Arabia across the Bab al-Mandab Straits.
