This volume presents thirteen papers from three symposia held at the XIVth UISPP Congress held at the University of Liège in 2001. These symposia focused on `Landscape use during the final Palaeolithic and Mesolithic in north west Europe: the formation of extensive sites and site-complexes'; `Late foragers and early farmers of the Lepenski Vir-Schela Cladovei Culture in the Iron Gates Gorge'; `Intrusive farmers or indigeneous foragers: the new debate about the ethnolinguistic origins of Europe'. A further twelve papers, from a general session, discuss Palaeolithic and Mesolithic evidence from across Europe. These include reports on an Epipalaeolithic rabbit-skinning cave, Mesolithic skeletons and the cultures of France, southern Ukraine, north-eastern Europe and the Mediterranean. Two posters conclude the proceedings. Six contributions in French, the rest in English.
