Neolithic’s migrations are useful tools to understand the human influence on the environment in all continents of the planet. During this period, especially in Asia, man began to cultivate the land and to raise animals, and this may have had a pre-industrial impact on Earth's climate. Traces left by humans in the environment do not consist only in historical and archaeological finds but also in biological and chemical indicators that accumulated in soils and sediments over the past millennia. Collecting and radiodating these environmental matrices and analyzing samples in the labs, the partial reconstruction of past human activities in the studied area is possible.

Abstract

Neolithic’s migrations are useful tools to understand the human influence on the environment in all continents of the planet. During this period, especially in Asia, man began to cultivate the land and to raise animals, and this may have had a pre-industrial impact on Earth's climate. Traces left by humans in the environment do not consist only in historical and archaeological finds but also in biological and chemical indicators that accumulated in soils and sediments over the past millennia. Collecting and radiodating these environmental matrices and analyzing samples in the labs, the partial reconstruction of past human activities in the studied area is possible. Then, the comparison with historical and archeological data is needed, and with this multidisciplinary approach we aim to have a global view of the matter.
