It is often assumed that climatic and environmental developments influenced major behavioural and technological changes during the Late Pleistocene in Africa.  The seminar will explore the influence of the environment on human subsistence strategies at Blombos Cave (South Africa) ca. 75 - 70 ka and examines the changes in the representation of small (non-food) shellfish species, and large mammal and large shellfish prey to determine the local environment and climate and how its change influenced human subsistence strategies.

Event organitzat pel grup d'investigació CaSEs (Complexity & Socio-­‐Ecological Dynamics) Institució Milà i Fontanals (CSIC), dintre de la Línea d'Investigació Estabilidad i canvi social en les societats humanes: pasat, present i futur.
