combining palaeoclimate data with archaeological culture.  ...  Using this approach, our focus shifts from climate proxies to prehistoric cultures themselves.  ...  On the other hand, socio-economic adaptations to long-term (prolonged) natural hazard events will probably prove especially difficult to detect in the cultural (archaeological) record.  ...

On the Emerging Supremacy of Structured Digital Data in Archaeology: A Preliminary Assessment of Information, Knowledge and Wisdom Left Behind

Piraye Hacıgüzeller, James Stuart Taylor, Sara Perry
2021 Open Archaeology  
We ground our argument in a case study of a range of texts produced by practitioners working on the Çatalhöyük Research Project.  ...  Ultimately, we argue that the push to create more and more structured and structurable data needs to be tempered by a more inclusive digital practice in archaeology that protects difference, incommensurability  ...  PH authored Section 2: Structured Digital Data (and Texts as Unstructured Data) in Archaeology and Section 3: Mapping Çatalhöyük Texts to CRM with major contributions from JST and minor contributions from  ...

To these now the Dutch Universities OIKOS network can also be added, and if this was not enough the Guardian has recently launched a series "Guardian Cities" in the UK media.  ...  when can we say that a nucleated settlement has become a city?

Towards a Socio-Economic Model for Southwest Asian Cereal Domestication

Alexander Weide
2021 Agronomy  
In this sense, selection rates and the slow domestication process can be understood as a function of limited food sharing networks and increased labour-inputs into early arable environments—socio-economic  ...  I argue that these factors only partially explain the observed patterns and develop a model that contextualises the archaeobotanical data in their socio-economic settings.  ...  Socio-Economic Despite limitations in detecting food storage in archaeological contexts [49, 60] , the available evidence for PPNA food storage supports the general view that subsistence practices, including  ...

2 Theory and Practice for Trypillia Megasites [chapter]
