Adaptation and transformation of human setting from Middle Holocene to Early Bronze Agein south-eastern Arabian Peninsula
This paper is a tribute to the forerunners scholars that devoted their research to the prehistory of Arabia. In particular, Serge Cleuziou and Maurizio Tosi, who staked on the investigation of the most extreme point of eastern Arabia and enlightened the way to carry out the research to many others (Tosi 1989; Cleuziou, Tosi 2007). Their main effort was made to introduce this region as a wide history of land, people and culture with several concepts and directions of the research of an outermost place among ancient civilizations of Near and Middle East. The aim of this paper is to illustrate the framework of the evolutionary path from the sixth to second millennium BC keeping on mind some keywords: adaptation to local (arid) environment; resource exploitation; social and economic options; interactions; trade and exchange; sharing technology.
