A multidisciplinary project investigating the interrelations between crop plants, insect pollinators, and human management in prehistory.
Researching how and where broomcorn millet was first domesticated and why it appears on opposite sides of Asia at a similar time, 8,000 years ago.
This project will challenge the extant model on the beginning and spread of Islamic glazes, which asserts that they were all derived from the Middle East and spread with Arab expansion, and that new technologies were adopted passively by conquered societies. It will include a variety of glazed ware types dating to the 9th to 13th centuries CE from different regions of Central Asia.
