EA Lab alumna Forste and Marston publish article

Environmental Archaeology Lab alumna Kathleen M. Forste (GRS ’21) and John M. Marston are co-authors on a new article, “Cultivating the Hills and the Sands: A Comparative Archaeobotanical Investigation of Early Islamic Agriculture in Palestine”, in Environmental Archaeology. In this article, Forste et al. integrate archaeobotanical assemblages from a range of settlements across Early Islamic (c. 636–1099 CE) Palestine to argue that the production and consumption of plant resources were affected more by a settlement’s socioeconomic function than by its environmental setting.
