In the framework of a collaborative project (2017-2021), an interdisciplinary team will be working in Zambia excavating in three key locations:
The Luangwa Valley
Previous excavations have found evidence in these places for the Early to Middle Stone Age transition. This transition pre-dates the evolution of Homo sapiens and is characterised by a radical change in the way tools were imagined and made, with multiple parts combined into a whole. This is known as hafting or combinatorial technology.
