Landscapes of prehistoric settlement in the Anthemous Valley (Central Macedonia, Greece) in terms of archaeological and palaeogeographical data

Jakub Adam Niebieszczański

Abstract

Dissertation concerns the settlement changes in the Anthemous Valley in Northern Greece, since the Neolithic to the beggining of the Early Iron Age. It presents the results of fieldworks and laboratory investigations which were undertaken to reconstruct the diversity of sedimentary environment in the discussed study area. Due to this it was possible to obtain an insight into the dynamic of the natural processes in relation to prehistoric habitation. Various methods, such as the vibracoring, palynological, diatom and malacological analysis provided a view of natural environment in the past. In result of the investigations a dynamic developing landscape was revealed, in which creation the most prevailing processes were the fluvial (aggradation and progradation) and tectonic ones. This view was furthermore confronted with the archaeological record, providing the detection of possible links between the prehistoric human activity and natural environment. Following work has an interdisciplinary character, combining the archaeological settlement studies with geomorphological survey and investigations as well as with the laboratory methods derived from various environmental sciences.
