B. Horejs, B. Milić, F. Ostmann, U. Thanheiser, B. Weninger, A. Galik
2015 Journal of World Prehistory  
The potential existence of an additional Pre-Pottery Neolithic (PPN) obsidian network that operated between Cappadocia/ Cilicia and Cyprus further hints at the importance of maritime coastal trade.  ...  This Mesolithic/PPN maritime knowhow package appears to have been used by later groups, in the early 7th millennium calBC, exploring the centre of the Anatolian Aegean coast, and in time establishing some  ...  Ursula Thanheiser extends her sincere thanks to the flotation team for painstakingly processing vast amounts of matrix.  ...

2013 PLoS ONE  
A systematic study is made of how to combine sequence labels from these modules as well as the merits of various ontological resources.  ...  The results indicate that the identification of simple entity types such as chemicals and genes are robustly supported by single semantic resources, whereas phenotypes require combinations.  ...  We note though that so far we have used these ontologies as terminology resources and there will undoubtedly be potential to exploit the structures within their hierarchies in ways that can extend performance  ...

Micro-regions of the Lepenski Vir culture: Padina in the Upper Gorge and Hajdučka Vodenica in the Lower Gorge of the Danube

Borislav Jovanović
2008 Documenta Praehistorica  
We examine previous conclusions concerning the Lepenski Vir culture, or at the very least, try to put such discussions back in their archaeological context.  ...  We discuss the features that are essential for the organisation of the settlements, stratigraphy, and adaptability of architecture caused by geomorphology and climate, as well as the remarkable loss of  ...  The cultural development of communities was based on the exploitation of certain natural resources with a highly developed specialized technology, which resulted in unique cultural expressions.  ...

Land Snail Shell Beads in the Sub-Saharan Archaeological Record: When, Where, and Why?

Jennifer M. Miller, Elizabeth A. Sawchuk, Amy L. R. Reedman, Pamela R. Willoughby
2018 African Archaeological Review  
We consider possible explanations for the late adoption of land snails as a raw material for beadmaking within the larger context of environmental, economic, and social processes in Holocene Africa.  ...  Despite the long history of OES bead production on the continent and the abundance of land snails available throughout the Pleistocene, LSS beads appear only in the late Holocene and are almost exclusively  ...  Acknowledgements The authors wish to acknowledge the Tanzanian Commission on Science and Technology (COSTECH) for granting fieldwork permits and the Division of Antiquities, Ministry of Natural Resources  ...

Will the real specialist please stand up? Characterising early craft specialisation, a comparative approach for Neolithic Anatolia

Emma Baysal
2013 Documenta Praehistorica  
The Neolithic period saw changes in production practices and the roles of individuals that were important in the development of increasing social differentiation.  ...  It addresses the possibility of comparing the various forms taken by early non-institutionalised specialisations and argues the importance of considering this subject as a major element in emerging social  ...  In the very specific context of the Neolithic, it is also essential to have a framework within which to situate incipient specialisations.  ...

Origins of sedentism: possible roles of ideology and shamanism in the transition [article]

Ross Durward Wickham, University, The Australian National, University, The Australian National
Emergence of personal and group individualism during the transition, but particularly in the latter part, saw competition in both hierarchical and heterarchical contexts for social control.  ...  Recognising causal links between religious practices and socio-political structures, it is argued that the transition to settled life during the Neolithic was the product of social and political changes  ...  They lie at the boundary between a number of productive ecological zones which, from the Mesolithic, had offered the potential for the exploitation of varied wild, and subsequently domesticated, resources  ...
