The prehistory of SE Asia is very different from the rest of the Old World. The stone tool kit is rudimentary and production techniques lasted unchanged for millennia. Currently, the dominant hypothesis to explain it is the “Bamboo Hypothesis”: prehistoric hunter-gatherers would have adapted to their environment, the tropical forest and manufactured more complex implements in bamboo. The objective of this project is to explore the potential adaptation of Late Pleistocene hunter gatherers to the forest in Palawan, Philippines and its modalities: have stone tools really been used mostly to make bamboo tools? We know, thanks to plant remains discovered in the archaeological record, that several species were known and used. Therefore, we can hypothesise that the simplification of lithic technology could be due to a technological investment focusing on a large spectrum of plants and not only on bamboo. As objects made of plants do not preserve well, I will gather data by an indirect mean: studying use-wear and micro plant residues on stone tools. To increase the possibilities of diagnosis, I will move from classic qualitative use-wear analyses to a quantitative methodology using confocal microscopy. This method proved efficient to distinguish use-wear resulting from processing different plants in the Levant. This research will be conducted at the Institut Mila y Fontanals (CSCI), in Barcelona, where I will receive high level training in quantitative use-wear and at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History (Jena, Germany) (secondment) where I will be trained in micro plant residue analyses. This project will contribute to our understanding of environmental influence on human development and the adaptability of our species to the rainforest. It will also question the assumption that simple technology is the reflection of simple society as lithic functional analyses may reveal a hidden complexity in plant related practices that may be unique to SE Asia.
Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "BEBAMB" project.
For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.
Send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.
Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
