IntroductIon
How did early humans (hominins) rom Arica reach Europe in the Pleis-tocene? Were they conned to the Near Eastern land corridor, or did they cross the Mediterranean? When did seaaring in the orm o deliberate,direct transpelagic crossings begin? When did early humans rst reachCrete, an island or some 5,000,000 years that was until recently thought tohave been inhabited or the rst time only in the Neolithic period? Theseare a ew o the questions posed by recent discoveries in southwestern Crete, where the Plakias Survey project has conducted two seasons o archaeologi-cal reconnaissance, in 2008 and 2009.
