Biweekly Colloquium: “Uncovering the Archaeological Landscape of the Veluwe; Central Netherlands, through Remote Sensing, Data Science and Citizen Science”

Nov 09, 2020 from 04:15 PM to 05:45 PM

Virtual meeting

Karsten Lambers Leiden University

Uncovering the Archaeological Landscape of the Veluwe; Central Netherlands, through Remote Sensing, Data Science and Citizen Science

This talk will provide an update on ongoing archaeological research on the Veluwe, one of the few densely forested areas in the Netherlands. While many archaeological traces are well preserved under the forest cover, they are also well hidden. In spite of decades of archaeological fieldwork by Leiden University and others, our image of the rich archaeological heritage of the Veluwe is still sketchy.

Two recently launched, interlinked research projects are currently expanding our knowledge considerably. Both approach the Veluwe from a regional perspective. In a data science project, called WODAN (Workflow for Object Detection of Archaeology in the Netherlands) we are developing a multi-class detector of archaeological objects in LiDAR data, the core of which is a Faster R-CNN (region-based convolutional neural network). This project has more than doubled the amount of known prehistoric burial mounds in the region, and has also allowed substantial progress in the study of Celtic fields and charcoal kilns. In a citizen science project, called Heritage Quest, hundreds of citizen researchers have been mapping the same three object categories in LiDAR data, and some of them are currently helping us to verify them in the field, which again expands the number of known archaeological objects considerably.

Both projects inform each other through the mutual proposal and cross-validation of potential archaeological objects. They also generate data that allow us to assess and compare the performance of experts, volunteers, and neural networks in the detection and mapping of archaeological objects.

Biweekly Colloquium: “Dispersal 2.0: Population History and the Spread of Early Farming in Europe”

Dec 07, 2020 from 04:15 PM to 05:45 PM

Virtual meeting

Marc Vander Linden University of Cambridge

Dispersal 2.0: Population History and the Spread of Early Farming in Europe

Despite extensive coverage in academic and popular media, the reports of the solution to the spread of farming have been greatly exaggerated. Namely, whilst recent aDNA research has indeed demonstrated the long-suggested link between population movement and the introduction of plant and animal domesticates across Europe, our understanding of how this process actually happened remains surprisingly limited. What factors were shaping the demographic expansion of this population? How much ecological and environmental parameters did influence this expansion and the known spatio-temporal in agricultural practices? To what extent local foraging communities were involved? This lecture will tackle some of these questions by focusing on the early Holocene sequence in the western Balkans and Adriatic basin, by discussing results gained from fieldwork, synthetic appraisal of museum collections and literature, and computational approaches undertaken as part of a recently completed ERC project.

Biweekly Colloquium: “The Lesser Grains. Millet Consumption in Prehistoric Italy”

Virtual meeting

Mary Anne Tafuri Sapienza University of Rome

The Lesser Grains. Millet Consumption in Prehistoric Italy

The application of biomolecular techniques for the study of food practices in prehistoric Europe has revealed an interesting complexity. This is particularly true for the Bronze Age, where the use of ‘alternative’ grains, such as millets, has been assessed isotopically through the measurement of stable carbon (δ13C) and nitrogen (δ15N) isotope ratios in human and animal bone collagen. Earliest evidence of C4 plants consumption comes from northern Italy, with the Po plain acting as a hotspot for the development of the farming of new crops. Isotopic data from Early, Middle and Late Bronze Age sites from western Veneto and Friuli will be discussed in the light of a recent reassessment of our understanding of prehistoric food practices in Italy. Data obtained contribute to the understanding of mode and tempo of the spread of new crops in the Peninsula, which might further call for a reconsideration of food production and consumption among Bronze Age groups of southern and central Europe.

Biweekly Colloquium: “Domestication in Action – On the Archaeology of Human- Reindeer Interaction”

Jan 25, 2021 from 04:15 PM to 05:45 PM

Virtual meeting

Anna-Kaisa Salmi University of Oulu

Domestication in Action – On the Archaeology of Human-Reindeer Interaction

The domestication of animals has traditionally been understood in terms of human control over the animal’s lives and the subsequent morphological, genetic and population structure change. However, this approach is not sufficient for understanding the domestication of the reindeer, or in fact, the early domestication processes of many other animal species. The commonly used domestication markers, such as morphological, genetic and population structure changes are not likely to reflect domestication in the reindeer as clearly as in many other species because of the limited and varying human influence on the reindeer’s life cycle in past reindeer pastoralism.

This presentation explores alternative ways to identify and understand reindeer domestication. Specifically, I will explore possibilities for tracing human-reindeer interactions such as draught reindeer use and reindeer feeding in the archaeological record as markers of domestication. Understanding domestication in the context on human-animal interaction is in line with current definition of animal domestication as a wide range of mutualistic relationship between human and animals. Furthermore, it allows a range of new archaeological techniques to be used as domestication markers. This lecture will present some the first archaeological results on past reindeer feeding and draught reindeer use, and their implications for human-reindeer relationships.
