Neolithic

In the early post-glacial period, plant and animal domestication developed in several widely separated regions of the Old World including the Near East, South and East Asia, and parts of Africa (as well as the Americas). This was often in populations which had become partially sedentarised and were living in formative village-based communities. These major economic and demographic developments were often associated with significant changes in social organisation as well as ritual and ideological practices and were accompanied by a wide range of other technological innovations. In time, components of the Neolithisation process spread into adjacent regions either as a result of direct colonisation or selective adoption of its various features by indigenous communities. Staff are involved in research on this period in several areas of the world.
