Cultural Evolution of Neolithic Europe

The ERC-funded EUROEVOL Project will host a special seminar at the Institute on 30 April.

Presentations by project members Stephen Shennan, Adrian Timpson and Tim Kerig will outline the aims of this European Research Council-funded project on the cultural evolution of Neolithic Europe, the methods used for reconstructing the prehistoric demographies which are a main focus of the project, some of the results of the demographic analysis, and examples of how the demographic patterns relate to other evidence, including cultural distributions and stone axe production.

The seminar will be followed by a drinks reception in the Staff Common Room. All welcome.

Any enquiries about the research being undertaken as part of the EUROEVOL project may be directed to Stephen Shennan.
