School of Mathematics, University of Manchester

The workshop

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;
(iii) assessing the importance of environmental factors in the emergence of regional peculiarities of socio-cultural behavious, formation of socio-cultural entities, and their possible impact on the subsequent Europe's socio-cultural distinctions;
(iv) establishing working contacts among participants of FEPRE project.

Preliminary programme is now available
