Today we talk about the murky and difficult to define Mesolithic period in European history. We cover how the Paleolithic cultures became Mesolithic ones in adapting to the new weather patterns brought on by the end of the Pleistocene and the emergence of the Holocene. We cover the Mesolithic rather quickly so that we can get to the Neolithic when things really start to get cooking.
