Preparation for publication of a technical and interpretive work on the Scaloria Cave, a Neolithic cult and burial site in the Puglia region of southern Italy. (16 months)

The Scaloria Cave Project is an interdisciplinary, international, collaborative project focused on the analysis and interpretation of unpublished data from a series of explorations of Grotta Scaloria, a double-chambered cave located on the edge of the Tavoliere Plain, Italy. The compilation, analysis, and interpretation of archaeological and archival data from the Scaloria project will contribute significantly to studies of Italian prehistory and also to a broader understanding of Neolithic settlement and social relations, specifically to the role of cult, ritual and burial among early farming and herding populations.
