Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Kaufman examines some of the social reasons for the Natufian shift to sedentary villages and an economy based on intensive collecting. He shows that one can document a gradual change from small, mobile bands with simple foraging to intensive collecting as one looks at the Kebarans through the Geometric Kebarans to the Natufians. He sees Natufian art work, burial practices, and other rituals as a way of maintaining group identity.
