Identification of Ancient Irrigation Practices based on the Carbon Isotope Discrimination of Plant Seeds: a Case Study from the South-East Iberian Peninsula
Abstract This study presents the analysis of carbon isotope discrimination (Δ) in cereal and faba bean seeds from archaeological sites as a rapid method of evaluating the occurrence or otherwise ofExpand
Changes in carbon isotope discrimination in grain cereals from different regions of the western Mediterranean Basin during the past seven millennia. Palaeoenvironmental evidence of a differential
Carbon isotope discrimination (Δ) was determined for kernels of six-row barley and durum wheat cultivated in the western Mediterranean basin during the last seven millennia. Samples came fromExpand
Stable carbon and nitrogen isotopes and quality traits of fossil cereal grains provide clues on sustainability at the beginnings of Mediterranean agriculture.
The results indicate a progressive loss of soil fertility, even when the amount of precipitation remained steady, thereby indicating the unsustainable nature of early agriculture at this site in the Western Mediterranean Basin. Expand
On the origin and domestication of Olea europaea L. (olive) in Andalucía, Spain, based on the biogeographical distribution of its finds
The remains of Olea europaea in archaeological contexts in the southern Iberian Peninsula have been found in the Epipalaeolithic levels of Cueva de Nerja (10860±160 b.p.). The abundant appearance ofExpand
Transposon activation is a major driver in the genome evolution of cultivated olive trees (Olea europaea L.)
A great genetic variability has been found in cultivated olive as a result of a significant activation of TEs during the domestication process, including an early possible genetic bottleneck. Expand
Long-term human impact and forest management in the Phoenician and Roman city of Utica (Tunisia) (900 BC−500 AD)
Human Colonization of new lands implied historically the diffusion of new plant species and the exploitation of local plant resources and forests by human communities. Phoenician colonization in theExpand
In this study, a sample of 16 burial chambers (rectangular, square and two circular shapes), situated in the Iberian necropolis of the ancient Tútugi has been characterized metrically andExpand

Use, management and spatial analysis of wood resources in the iberian oppidum of Puente Tablas (Jaén, Spain)
Abstract: The oppidum of Puente Tablas, under excavation since 1985 by a team from the University of Jaen, has revealed complex planning with different functional areas: Gate, Sanctuary, Palace, andExpand
