Spatial Archaeology

This line of research centers on studying spatial aspects of the archaeological record as a consequence of the activities of hominins at sites and in the landscape to understand, prioritize and integrate archaeological units into social and paleoenvironmental contexts and try to establish predictive models of territorial occupation.

The interpretation of Paleolithic archaeological sites, understood as occupation or activity units delimited both in space and time, is based on the identification of the archaeological record and its relationship structures. The characteristics of the mineral and organic remains integrated in each archaeological aggregate and their spatial analysis within a stratigraphic context can allow us to define the nature of the occupation, to recognize the activities carried out and to estimate the territory where the resources consumed were collected.
