Mobility and Migration as Ecological Processes in Ancient Eurasia

Author(s): Michael Frachetti

Year: 2018


New research in the field of aDNA has re-invigorated debates about migrations across Eurasia in prehistory. Emerging data in this field demands that we interrogate how mobility and migration from an ecological and demographic perspective, since these factors influence our interpretation of the still emerging genetic data. In this paper I present the archaeological conditions of the Eurasian steppe ca. 3000-2000 BCE applied to a spatial model with the goal of generating a more complex ecological picture of mobility, migration, and demographics in Early Bronze Age Eurasia.
