Abstract

The submarine prehistoric archaeological sites on Maditerranean coast were studied for the understanding of human migration in the last 2 million years. The tectonic changes in the coastal areas, the glacio-eustatic-isostatic factors determining the exposed shelf areas in the Mediterranean were studied. The regional climate changes, the nature of the exposed shelf, vegetation and water supply in the key crossing zones and trnsit areas were also investigated. It was found that the continental shelf was occupied by humans to a depth of least -40m.
