Abstract

the human/environment interactions are crucial to the understanding of cultural and social dynamics, particularly concerning the earliest farmers. this study allowed us to define the main human/environment dynamics between 6,200 and 3,700 bC in the neolithic of the apulia region, considering paleoclimatological, paleoenvironmental and paleoeconomic data at the regional and the mediterranean scale. Following a multidisciplinary approach, we compared the neolithic settlement patterns in the different sub-areas of apulia, as evidenced by archaeological researches, with paleoenvironmental and paleoclimatic information from natural off-shore and off-site archives. We then analysed archaeobotanical data (plant macroremains) gathered from 35 archaeological sites from vii and iv millennium bC. the interdisciplinary approach allowed us to define climate characters of the studied time span (mainly temperature and rainfall) and their influence on human adaptation strategies highlighted by settlement patterns and agricultural practices.
