FERNANDEZ-CRESPO Teresa — Post-Doctorante

Marie Curie Post-Doctoral fellowship
At LAMPEA from September 2019 to August 2021

Contact : Teresa Fernadez-Crespo

Topic of Marie Curie Fellowship

WEAPON - "Warrior Elites : Assessing their presence and organisational identity in Neolithic Europe " (H2020 MSCA IF-EF-ST- 2017, supervisor : Gwenaëlle Goude)

The project proposes a multi-isotope approach that aims to explore the identity and life-histories of those populations involved in the violence observed in Neolithic Europe, particularly in the Mid-Upper Ebro and Mid-Upper Rhine valleys (northern Spain and northeastern France, respectively), where a number of skeletons with skeletal trauma and/or arrowhead injuries have been documented.
