Materiality and depositional practices in the later Prehistory in Europe: an interdisciplinary approach using central Iberia (Spain) record as a case study
A research project of the Department of Archaeology.
This European Commission-funded IEF Marie Curie post-doctoral research project has been designed to provide a complete training program in the ceramic re-fitting methodology and the cultural biography of material culture with Prof. John Chapman. Those approaches are allowing for the ‘deliberate fragmentation premise’ to be tested in the Iberian archaeological record from a coherent and comprehensive long-term research programme for the first time. The project is achieving a more nuanced understanding of the prehistoric material record and the actual 'otherness' of later prehistoric people, focusing on different and complementary depositional contexts, from the early Neolithic to the Bell Beaker and till the Later Bronze Age.
