Archaeology of Social Dynamics (ASD)

Archaeology of Social Dynamics is a research group of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), hosted in the Mila y Fontanals Institute on Humanities research (IMF), devoted to the study of the social relations of the past human communities from an archaeological perspective. These relationships affect both intra-community (relationships between individuals) and inter-community behaviour (relationships established between different communities).

In all cases the synchronic variability of these relations as well as their diachronic dynamics are emphasized. This way, our attention is especially focused on the dynamics of social change, that is, on the great transitions that took place throughout Prehistory and pre-medieval periods.

In particular, we investigate the human-environment interactions, mobility and land-use, dynamics of intensification of resource exploitation, technical innovations, the origins of agriculture, as well as changes in livestock practices and the integration of these processes in the set of socioeconomic dynamics.

ASD constitutes a research unit of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) which is recognised and funded by the Agency for Management of University and Research Grants of the Government of Catalonia (AGAUR; 2017 SGR 995).

Hallan un tipo inédito de figuras humanas neolíticas hechas de sílex y usadas para ritos funerarios. Tienen entre 9000 y 10000 años, y podrían arrojar luz sobre la revolución artística y cultural del Neolítico.
