Dr. Daniel Adler from the University of Connecticut's Department of Anthropology is working on a team of archaeologists and geologists, led by Dr Keith Wilkinson (University of Winchester), set to examine the history of early humans in Eurasia after being awarded funding to further its research.
The £387,792 grant for the Pleistocene Archaeology, Geochronology and Environments of the Southern Caucasus (PAGES) project comes from the Leverhulme Trust, which aims to support original research that advances world knowledge in the fields of the arts, humanities, sciences and social sciences.
The project team comprises scientists from Universities of Connecticut, Royal Holloway, University of London, Armenian Academy of Sciences, University of Glasgow, University of North Carolina (Greensboro), and the Senckenberg Research Institute.
The team will carry out fieldwork in the the Hrazdan and Debed river valleys of Armenia in 2016 and 2017, while collected samples will be studies in laboratories of the University of Winchester, Royal Holloway, and the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre at the University of Glasgow.
