SEArch first fieldtrip to collect seaweeds! Fomos ao sargaço!

EN_Field season has begun for the SEArch #h2020 project! Starting with seaweed collection in the rock pools near the prehistoric shell middens of the Cape St. Vincent region (Algarve, Portugal) to build a reference collection. The low tides and good weather helped our task! These seaweeds will integrate the reference materials to the study of archaeological samples for paleoenvironmental and use of marine plants reconstruction.

PT_Iniciam-se os trabalhos de campo no projeto #2020 SEArch! Começamos com uma recolha da algas nas poças de maré da costa rochosa onde se situam os concheiros pré-históricos da região do Cabe de São Vicente, no Algarve. A maré baixa e o bom tempo estiveram a nosso favor! Estas algas integrarão a coleção de referência no estudo de amostras arqueológicas para a reconstrução paleoambiental e dos usos de plantas marinhas.

Origins of Coastal Adaptations in dialogue online

The first ICArEHB Dialogues series in 2021 is about “Origins of…”. The upcoming session will be on the Origins of Coastal Adaptations.

Could there be a better post to start this blog? After the huge success of the first session on the Origins of Human Behaviour (here it is to watch again), in the upcoming session, Klervia, from the CNRS in Toulouse, and Erich, from the ICArEHB here in Faro, will share the lastest news and perspectives from their innovative research projects and chat with everyone interested in the role that coastal regions and resoucres played in our species evolution. Plus, Vera will be moderating the conversation. Really looking forward!
