GlobalKites : Studying the “Desert Kites” at a Global Scale

[Site web]

The GLOBALKITES research project is financed by the French Research Agency (ANR) (2013-2017). It has several important collaborations with international institutions and academics. It proposes to define the variability, dating, distribution and functionality of major archaeological stone-made structures called “desert kites”. Often considered as hunting traps, the kites could have been also used for animal domestication. In a broader archaeological context, where kites seem to have been used from the Neolithic to sub-contemporaneous times, we propose an interdisciplinary approach at the crossings of anthropology (archeology and ethnology), geomatics and geoarchaeological and bioarchaeological sciences.
