  • Teaching PALETNOLOGIA (90512)

    Secondo anno di Lettere (L-10), Classico
    Credits (CFU): 6,00

    Program:
    This course examines some fundamental aspects of palaeoethnology (prehistoric archaeology) and of the development of the cultural processes from the Middle Pleistocene. It aims to relate the various cultural complexes with the adaptation models to the natural environment. Some of the topics include the presence of Neandertals in Eurasia, the migration of anatomically modern humans from Africa, the spread of Homo sapiens in Europe and the transition to the Mesolithic. Some methods of analysis and interpretation of the archaeological data are also considered, such as social organization, diet, economic exchanges and bioarcheology.
