My research focusses on earlier Holocene prehistory from ca. 10,calBC. Primarily I study human remains and wetlands, but all aspects of human-landscape interactions, wetlands and archaeology, from the earlier Mesolithic through to the Iron Age periods, the transition from food extraction to food producing societies, in situ preservation studies in wetlands, and many other areas .   However, cooking and food preparation, as specific acts that could reveal social information about life beyond the kitchen, only became a focus of archaeological inquiry more recently. A review of the literature on cooking and food preparation reveals a shift from previous studies on subsistence strategies, consumption, and by: 5.

During the excavation of the settlement, numerous fish remains were found. To gain an impression of the fish species caught, the largest assemblages, recovered in andfrom the Early Neolithic layers and one pit were analysed. The fish remains were quantified and total fish lengths estimated.

Stable isotope analysis of fish remains is more widely used and validated than trace element analysis within palaeoenvironmental studies (Disspain et al., ). Remains can be analysed for oxygen (δ 18 O) and carbon (δ 13 C) of the inorganic fraction (otolith aragonite and bone apatite) (Wang et al.,West et al.,Zazzo et al., ).Cited by: 4.

Palaeoenvironmental Analysis We offer a comprehensive suite of palaeoenvironmental services. These include the provision of advice and consultancy for a wide range of palaeoenvironmental requirements as well as assessments of charcoal, wood, other types of macrofossils and pollen to inform on the condition, range and potential of material.

This course provides an overview of the principle dating techniques used within archaeology and, more generally, the Quaternary. Starting with fundamental principles such as stratigraphy and relatively simple methods such as dendrochronology (tree-ring dating), the course will progress to examine some of the main scientifically based methods, such as radiocarbon, U-series, potassium/argon.

Fish Remains in Archaeology Fish remains have the same role to play in archaeological analysis as any other class of faunal remains; ie. as an aid in the reconstruction of palaeoeconomies and palaeoecology (see for example in Casteel () and Jones ()).

It is toward this end that the identification of fish remains should be undertaken. Water Civilization: From Yangtze to Khmer Civilizations comprises three major topics: 1) Discovery of the origin of rice agriculture and the Yangtze River civilization in southern China was mainly based on investigation of the Chengtoushan archaeological site, the earliest urban settlement in East Asia.

The origin of rice cultivation can be traced back to BC, with urban settlement. Environmental archaeology is a sub-field of archaeology which emerged in s and is the science of reconstructing the relationships between past societies and the environments they lived in.

The field represents an archaeological-palaeoecological approach to studying the palaeoenvironment through the methods of human palaeoecology.
