Subjects/methods: Archaeobotany

The University of Sheffield has a long-standing international reputation as a centre of excellence for the development and application of research methods in archaeobotany. By integrating the approaches of functional ecology, biomolecular and stable isotope analysis and radiocarbon dating our researchers have use plant remains to investigate major questions concerning the origins and spread of agriculture, the genetics of plant domestication and the interpretation of patterns of ancient land use.
