My PhD project explores political and socioeconomic developments along the Tyrrhenian coast from the end of the Bronze Age to the Archaic period (at the beginning of the 1st millennium BC) in relation with the climatic instability that was occurring during this period. I explore this period of change from the perspective of past-agricultural practices and human-environment interaction. More precisely, I analyse charred plant remains, seeds, fruits and woods coming from the archaeological sites of Gabii and Tarquinia which represent two of the most important proto-urban centres of the ancient regions of Latium vetus and Etruria respectively. It will permit to understand human exploitation of vegetal resources and patterns of consumption in order to detect possible mutual or different practices between the two proto-cities as well as changes across time. Stable isotope analysis will be undertaken on caryopses of both charred cereals and charcoals. Carbon stable isotope analysis will provide information on environmental water conditions and local irrigation systems while nitrogen stable isotopes signature will help to recognize local manuring activities. I have a Bachelor degree in Biology, Environment and Earth Science (BEST) and a Master Degree in Biodiversity, Ecology and Evolution (B2E), mention Chrono-environment and Palaeo-ecology (CEPAGE) from the University of Montpellier (France).
