Environmental Archaeologies of Neolithisation

[Congrès, colloques, réunions]

9 novembre - 12 novembre 2012
University of Reading

The origins and spread of Neolithic life-ways represent a pivotal change in human ecology and society. Communities transformed their relationships with the world around them, shifting away from reliance upon hunted and collected wild resources, to the management and domestication of plants and animals, alongside a pattern of increasing sedentism. These processes were played out at differing temporal and spatial scales ; from the life-cycle of a single organism of a population on the path to domestication, to the dissemination of ‘new’ farming economies around the world.
The conference aims to examine any aspect of Neolithisation at the varying scales of analysis that environmental archaeology can offer, from changes within a single site to those played out over continents.
