The Epipalaeolithic Near East designates the Epipalaeolithic ("Final Old Stone Age", also known as Mesolithic) in the prehistory of the Near is the period after the Upper Palaeolithic and before the Neolithic, between approximat years Before Present (BP).

The people of the Epipalaeolithic were nomadic hunter-gatherers that generally lived in small, seasonal camps.
