Adam Allentuck

My postdoctoral research is concerned with shifting wildlife hunting practices and mobility in the context of climate change in the eastern Jordanian steppe during the Epipalaeolithic period. The site of Kharaneh IV offers the opportunity to study the seasonal timing of site occupation, animal procurement strategies and animal consumption practices through zooarchaeological methods. My earlier work as a graduate student focused on issues of livestock exploitation in southeastern Turkey and Israel during the Early Bronze Age.
