Problems of the Genesis of Ancient Stone Age Industries in Central Asia

In the middle of the 20th century, H. Movius's theory of the diversity of early Paleolithic cultures in Eurasia was formed. According to him, the Early Paleolithic period was dominated by two major cultural areas: the South and Southeast Asian cultures, which, unlike in Europe, had only one-sided processed galkali weapons. The region from the Caspian Sea to the Hindu Kush is the boundary between these two cultures.

This article deals with the emergence of the Stone Age industry. Based on the aforementioned interpretations, general conclusions are drawn.
