Research

The project is a team effort, being fully inter/cross-disciplinary from its inception, also reflecting the position of modern prehistoric archaeology as an intermediary discipline between humanities and sciences, incorporating methods, techniques and results from bio, geo and environmental sciences. Besides the core funeral archaeology, material culture studies, and landscape approaches, our bio-sciences are covering genetics/ancient DNA, bio-anthropology and isotope biogeochemistry analyses. Geo- and environmental sciences are contributing with palaeoclimatology, climate change research, soil formation processes and environmental chemistry.
