Short description



We are organizing this panel and invite scholars to offer papers on appropriate aspects of their research taking into account the overall conference theme that will be “crossing borders”. Within these broad guidelines we would like participants to look at subjects such as the timing and processes of plant and animal domestication, the nature and spread of field agriculture and its associated material culture, bioanthropological relationships, settlement patterns and structures across one or more of the modern nation states and/or traditional early linguistic, ethnic and cultural boundaries.
