POLLEN, PHYTOLITH, AND STARCH GRAIN ANALYSIS OF DENTAL CALCULUS FROM NEMRIK 9, A PRE-POTTERY NEOLITHIC SITE IN NORTHERN IRAQ (2011)
Human teeth with visible dental calculus were submitted for pollen, phytolith and starch grain analysis from the Nemrik 9 site, located in Northern Iraq. The samples comprise single and multiple teeth from 11 different contexts. Nemrik 9 is a pre-pottery neolithic site on the eastern edge of the Fertile Crescent. The goal of this analysis is to provide subsistence information and data useful for better understanding the origins of agriculture in this region.
