First Meeting of Palæoenvironment and Ethnobotany, UTAD 2013
Universidade de Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro
9–11 May 2013, Vila Real, Portugal

Since prehistoric times, the relationship between human groups and natural resources has had considerable importance for the social, economic and cultural development of societies.

In the current setting of recession and of re-evaluation of the use of natural resources, we have to necessarily consider, not only how the environment was in the past but also how it was lived in, used and enjoyed. Palæoenvironmental and ethnobotanical studies can in this sense contribute to the understanding of sustainable use systems that will, in view of the future, help the development of local and regional economies.

At this meeting researchers, students from various fields of research and the general public will have the opportunity to exchange ideas and findings, with the environment and in particular plants acting as the common link.

The meeting will have as guest of honour the renown British researcher, Lady Jane Renfrew of Kaimsthorn, formerly both President of the International Work Group for Palaeoethnobotany and Vice-President of the Prehistoric Society.

Proposed programme

Inauguration of the Palæobotanic Garden of UTAD
Thematic round-tables
Papers and posters

Talk by guest of honour, Lady Jane Renfrew
