Dr. Waterman (Associate Professor of Biology, Mt. Mercy University) is the 2020 recipient of the AIA Archaeology of Portugal Fellowship and is excited to present her research to our society. Please join us as she enlightens us about the Portuguese Estremadura’s Late Neolithic through Early Bronze Age (c.3500-1500 BCE) periods. Large fortified coastal and interior settlements from the area demonstrate the emergence and later collapse of socially-complex non-state societies. While these habitations were economically and socially integrated, direct evidence of this integration is lacking. In this presentation stable and radiogenic isotopic data from human and animal samples recovered from the Late Prehistoric settlement sites of Vila Nova de São Pedro (VNSP) Zambujal, and Leceia are compared in order to discern patterns of human and domestic animal mobility between the sites.
