Welcome to our Lab!

1/4

Main research areas:

 

  • Near Eastern Paleoclimate

  • Archaeobotany of the Southern Levant

  • Palynological-Archaeology

 

 

Our lab conducts studies based on the identification of 

micro-botanical remains (such as pollen grains, spores and

parasite remains), as well as macro-botanical remains –

principally wood and charcoal.

 

 

 

This multidisciplinary laboratory tries to address the following research

questions:

  • Paleo-environment: The reconstruction of past vegetation and

climate conditions, and tracing evidence of ancient human-environment

relationships, e.g., human migration out of Africa and the beginning of

plant domestication. 

 

  • Archaeobotany: The identification of botanical remains from

archeological contexts: agricultural practices, diet, plant usage,

ancient gardens, deforestation, plant migration, and wooden implements. 

 

The challenge is to ID all these and thousands more like them!
