POPSabor – The first populations in the Baixo-Sabor valley: technology, settlement and social-ecological systems

 

The project POPSabor – The first populations in the Baixo-Sabor valley: technology, settlement and social-ecological systems (As primeiras populações do Baixo Sabor: tecnologia, povoamento e sistemas socio—ecológicos) is a follow up of previous archaeological works (2010-2015) in prehistoric sites in the Sabor valley. The POPSabor is a PIPA (Projectos de Investigação Plurianual de Arqueologia) approved by the DGPC in 2015.


The main objectives of POPSabor are:
- Characterize anatomically and genetically the first populations that inhabited the Sabor valley;
- Understand past strategies for the exploitation of biotic and abiotic resources;
- Characterize the environmental context in which prehistoric human communities subsisted and understand how environment and human societies evolved together.


This project gathers investigators from different institutions and different fields of expertise. Together they will approach some of the most relevant sites recently discovered in the Iberian Peninsula. In a long-term perspective, covering all the Palaeolithic and the Late Prehistory, settlement strategies, population movements, migrations, social-ecological systems, dietary habits, productive systems and technological evolution will be studied in an integrative and interdisciplinary way.
