Description
While marine resources played a crucial role in Mesolithic societies, the role of coastal adaptations associated with the first Neolithic farmers is still poorly known. The present project aims to investigate Mesolithic and Neolithic shell midden formation using sedimentary microscopic signatures on anthropic deposits from Atlantic Iberia. SEArch will apply state-of-the-art developments on lipid biomarkers and stable isotopes analysis of organic molecular data stored in archaeological sediments. The main objective is to understand behavioural and environmental changes associated with the exploitation of aquatic resources. SEArch will achieve this goal with a thr...
