The first farmers in Cantabrian Spain: contribution of numerical chronology to understand an historical process

Fano, Miguel Ángel; Cubas, Miriam; Wood, Rachel


The aim of this paper is to review the current state of research for the Early Neolithic (c.5000–c.4300 cal BC) in Cantabrian Spain. Bayesian chronological models have been constructed to examine the neolithisation process and assess the role radiocarbon dates may play in understanding this period. The models suggest that the disappearance of hunter-gatherer societies took place after the first Neolithic groups were active in the region. These results agree with the archaeological record for...[Show more]
