  • Distribution maps of crop plants in Early to Middle Bronze Age northern Mesopotamia and the Levant show distinct changes with regard to relative plant presence in samples, proportions of various crops found and frequencies in the total number of finds, which may be interpreted as changes in agro-production reflecting human adaptation to increasing aridity from climate change after 4200 b.p. The hypothesis of a causal relationship between correlated proxy palaeoclimate and archaeobotanical data… CONTINUE READING
