Human Palaeoecology

About this Group

From late Palaeolithic hunter-gatherers to the first farming communities in the Old World, we study the impacts of environmental and climate change on human societies, the evolution of human foodways, plant and animal domestication, the transition from foraging to farming, and the prehistory of disease, with a distinctive geographical focus on the late Palaeolithic and Neolithic societies of Southwest Asia and the Mediterranean basin. Fields of specialisation include archaeobotany and anthracology, archaeozoology, human osteoarchaeology, stable isotope analysis, lithic and ceramic analysis, material culture and settlement studies, geometric morphometrics and quantitative methods
