About

What does the so-called "third scientific revolution in archaeology" mean?

You will get insight into how specialized natural methods - such as ancient DNA and strontium isotope analysis - are changing our ability to interpret and understand the past. We look at societal changes in prehistoric Europe from the time around the introduction of agriculture to the end of the Bronze Age. The aspects that we place great emphasis on are social complexity, production methods, interaction and diffusion, consumption and distribution patterns, but also political economy and warfare.
