This volume of Paléorient gathers several of the contributions presented to the session A25f, “North-south Connections and Disconnections in the Prehistory and Protohistory of the Levant”, in the XVIIth Congress of the International Union for Prehistoric and Protohistoric Sciences (Burgos, 2014). It aims to contribute to a better understanding of the cultural dynamics that prevailed in the Levantine region during Late Prehistory and Protohistory on connections and disconnections in the archaeological record. New data provided by recent works on lithic and ceramic assemblages, burial customs and iconographic themes highlight the interplay between the Northern and Southern Levant through time.
