OFFER DESCRIPTION

The last phase of the Palaeolithic represents a moment of important changes in the life of the of hunters-gatherers groups living in the Mediterranean at the end of the Pleistocene. Both demographic and socio-economic transformations were stimulated by the sudden climatic improvement which after the Last Glacial Maximum (from 18-16 thousand BP ca.) produced significant changes in the environment and in the availability and distribution of natural resources. In this scenario, it is important to understand how human groups adapted to new environments and how settlement strategies and socio-economic structures changed.
As part of a broader interdisciplinary research program, the study of strategies for the exploitation and management of natural resources, and in particular of the animal one, assumes a central role. This research grant is aimed at studying faunal reamains from some key-sites of the Late Epigravettian in Calabria, Puglia and Sicily
