The Archaeology of Agricultural Resilience in Eastern Africa (AAREA)

Start date: 01 Feb 2014, End date: 31 Jan 2018,

"The twin concepts of sustainability and conservation that are so pivotal within current debates regarding economic development and biodiversity protection both contain an inherent temporal dimension, since both refer to the need to balance short-term gains with long-term resource maintenance. Proponents of resilience theory and of development based on ‘indigenous knowledge’ have thus argued for t ...

LEGumes for the Agriculture of TOmorrow (LEGATO)

Start date: 01 Jan 2014, End date: 31 Dec 2017,

The project has been conceived to promote the culture of grain legumes in Europe by identifying priority issues currently limiting grain legume cultivation and devising solutions in term of novel varietal development, culture practices, and food uses. LEGATO will develop tools and resources to enable state of the art breeding methodology and to exploit fully the breadth of genetic resources avail ...

Climate change has always had a marked impact on human society. In the past it was far more extreme in amplitude if not in rate than that experienced today; unfortunately this experience provides few models for the present and future since the responses of past communities to these changes still remain largely unknown. Major developments in human society since the end of the Last Ice Age are assoc ...

After the Ice: Postglacial hunter-gatherer lifeways (POSTGLACIAL)

Start date: 01 Jan 2012, End date: 31 Dec 2016,

The period of rapid global warming that took place at the end of the last Ice Age in NW Europe must have posed dramatic challenges for hunter-gatherers. This project aims to integrate high-resolution records of palaeoclimatic and palaeoenvironmental change with the remarkable and newly emerging archaeological record of postglacial sites around palaeo-Lake Flixton, (Yorkshire, UK).Star Carr was fir ...

ADS3DV will focus on the development of a 3D real-time system (3D viewer) for the management and analysis of archaeological data. The aim of this interactive application is not just the visualization of 3D archaeological data, but also the creation of an effective tool for the analysis and interpretation of the archaeological record. Thanks to ADS3DV, in fact, multiple experts will share and analy ...

Although pottery is one of humanity’s most important and enduring innovations, understanding exactly how and why pottery first appeared, as well as how, when and where the innovation subsequently spread, remains a central problem in archaeological research. It is also unclear why pottery was innovated at this particular juncture and in East Asia, much earlier than other parts of the world. In 2013 ...

"We aim to understand the relationship between dynamic changes in physical landscapes and patterns of human dispersal and development in prehistory, paying particular attention to the impact of active tectonics and sea-level change. We will:• Introduce and develop concepts and techniques of tectonic geomorphology and mapping to analyse the relationship between geological instability, complex topog ...

It is apparent that soils/sediments immediately associated with buried archaeological human remains contain a valuable unexploited archive of archaeological information with physical and chemical signatures. Thus, excavation of human graves, for cultural reconstruction and to understand archaeological burial practices, aspects of human health and for forensic investigations would benefit significa ...
