Dafna Langgut [+-]
Tel Aviv University
Dafna Langgut is a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Archaeology and Ancient Near Eastern Cultures at Tel Aviv University, Israel. In 2013 Langgut established the Laboratory of Archaeobotany and Ancient Environments. She specializes in the study of past vegetation and climate in the Near East, based on the identification of botanical remains. Through this discipline, she reconstructs climate changes and considers the past relationship between humans and the environment, e.g. human dispersal out of Africa and the beginning of domestication. Langgut's research also involves the identification of micro-botanical remains (mainly pollen) and macro-botanical remains (wood-charcaol remains) from archaeological contexts. Langgut is also the curator of pollen and archaeobotanical collections at the Steinhardt Museum of Natural History, Tel Aviv University.

The final results of the botanical and faunal studies are presented here, in four separate sub-sections (as below). If needed, some of the larger charts, which comprise a reference archive of macrobotanical finds, will be relegated to the online supplement for the sake of space. 7.1: Evidence from Pollen – Dafna Langgut – analysis of pollen record from samples taken in the terraces 7.2: Evidence from Phytoliths - Sofia Laparidou – phytoliths from site and terraces 7.3: The Macrobotanical Record - Annette Hansen – macrobotanical analysis from site 7.4: The Zoorarchaeological Remains - Chiara Corbino – zooarchaeological analysis from site
