This Symposium will be held at the University of Bradford, UK, on 12-14 April 2011.
The symposium will provide an opportunity to review critically the contribution of scientific approaches to the transition from foraging to farming in northern Europe. One focus in particular is on new developments in molecular and isotopic applications, including DNA. However, we welcome contributions from any aspect of scientific study, including animals and plants, material culture and landscape studies.
Speakers include Harald Lübke of the Schleswig-Holstein State Museum Foundation at Schloss Gottorf, Germany; Andrew Millard from Durham University; Rich Schulting from the School of Archaeology at Oxford University; Alison Sheridan, Head of Early Prehistory at the National Museum of Scotland; and Mark Thomas, Professor of Evolutionary Genetics at University College London.
