Out of Africa, Into Asia
This research network is investigating the adaptations and archaeological signature of anatomically modern humans that left Africa and arrived in India, from where their descendents moved on to East and South East Asia. In terms of archaeological fieldwork, this has involved new excavations and sampling programmes on the Late Pleistocene of Southern India (especially Kurnool District) and central India (especially the Son Valley of Madhya Pradesh). Sampling has included some palaeoecological work, especially on phytoliths on which Dorian Fuller has acted as an adviser to the primary Indian laboratory. He has played a key part in inferring vegetation patterns in India and adjacent regions from the available direct evidence (pollen cores and palaeoclimatic proxies) and indirect evidence (species disjunctions), with important implications for how hunter-gatherers would have been able to subsist, or not, in these vegetation zones.
