Bioarchaeological Analyses of the Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Age Population of Bolores, Portugal
Our project is involved in analyzing the impact of social change on the health and lives of ancient people. Excavations have been carried out at Bolores - a 4500 year burial site in Portugal - by a UI team, under the direction of Dr. Katina Lillios. The remains from Bolores are being analyzed at the University of Iowa before their eventual return to Portugal. This research will contribute to a better understanding of the history of complex societies, including their collapse.
