Course content

Archaeobotany analyses plant remains from archaeological sites to shed light on the environment and the socio-economic characteristics of past societies and comprises the study of plant macroremains (i.e., seeds, wood charcoal, parenchymatic tissue, plant impressions) and plant microremains (i.e., pollen, phytoliths, starch). This course focuses on plant macroremains and will be taught with an emphasis on practical exercises, from recovery techniques to interpretation. Students will acquire basic skills necessary to conduct archaeobotanical investigations and thus, be able to characterise the interaction between past societies and their environment at any of the regions/periods of interest.
