HaGMA Hunter and Gatherers Micro-Archaeology

28th June 2013

'HaGMA Hunter and Gatherers Micro-Archaeology', a seminar to be delivered by David E. Friesem (Weizmann Institute of Science) at 11h on 28th June 2013 in the seminar rooms on the 1st floor at IMF-CSIC, c/ Egipcíaques 15, 08001 - Barcelona (Spain).

The seminar will discuss HaGMA, an interdisciplinary project aiming to study the spatial deposition of the microscopic archaeological record for transitions in hunter-gatherers societies.

An ethnoarchaeological approach is suggested, by which 'state of the art' analytical instruments study microscopic remains in contemporary dwellings of hunter-gatherers in South India.

Special attention will be given to spatial sampling and mapping on the field and to analyses in the laboratories, incorporating techniques from the field of geochemistry, geology and geography.

This seminar is organized by the CaSES research group in the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology at Institución Milá y Fontanals of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC)
