School of Mathematics, University of Manchester
This workshop focuses on:
(i) development of a mathematical model of Neolithisation that includes both population migration and cultural diffusion involving several coexisting popultaion types and variable environment;
(ii) assessing the role of human migration and the impact of incoming versus indigenous populations in the process of Neolithisation, as suggested by archaeological and radiometric evidence;

(iv) establishing working contacts among participants of FEPRE project.
