Storage is crucial to the sequence of food management. It is nonetheless at times difficult to recognize in the archaeological record due to problems of preservation of ancient food remains. Archaeoentomology in this sense can be of great value as it sheds light on past storage techniques. This study presents the findings of the archaeoentomologica...

Este trabajo presenta los resultados del estudio pluridisciplinar de un asentamiento temporal preeuropeo situado en la Reserva Natural Especial de las Dunas de Maspalomas (Gran Canaria). Carece de estructuras estables de habitación, pero conserva de manera excepcional una estructura de combustión sobre la arena dunar. El sitio se ocupó en el cambio...
Article
The island of Gran Canaria (Canary Islands, Spain) shows great potential for studying the wooden raw materials used by the indigenous population during the Prehispanic period based on xylological analyses from domestic and funerary contexts. This paper includes archaeobotanical data from wooden funerary artefacts recovered from several archaeologic...
Article
Recovery and analyses of perishable non-charred archaeological wood is extremely rare. Traceological analyses in general are still scarce and mainly focused on waterlogged remains. Ancient desiccated wood from the Canary Islands offers an exceptional opportunity to identify the processes and techniques of the indigenous populations prior to the arr...
Article
The site of Ifri El Baroud has one of the longest sequences excavated in recent times in NE Morocco, covering a chronology of ca. 23-13 ka cal BP. The sequence includes Early and Late Iberomaurusian levels and offers the possibility of investigating the economic, social and environmental processes that took place during this period. In this paper w...
Article
There is little direct archaeological evidence as to the agriculture and plant gathering of the Guanches, the indigenous population of the Island of Tenerife (3rd–15th century CE). The current study presents the findings of the first systematic samplings and analyses of macro-botanical remains (wood charcoals and seeds) from Guanche contexts in Ten...

This article outlines the results of the archaeobotanical analysis of desiccated woods and wood charcoal fragments from La Fortaleza granary (Santa Lucía de Tirajana, Gran Canaria). These results constitute the first xylological and anthracological data from such storage spaces, suggesting wood-gathering activities local to the granary. The most ab...

This contribution aims at understanding the storage techniques used in the past by means of studying the entomological and plant remains present in the pre-hispanic granary of Risco Pintado, dated between the IX and XV centuries cal AD. This type of granary groups together a large number of silos excavated in the volcanic tuff, situated on steep es...

Ifri El Baroud (34°45´N, 3°18´W), located at 535 m. a. s. l. on the northern slope of the Ich Chaboun massif in Northeast Morocco, constitutes one of the few sites in the whole Maghreb –together with Ifri n’Ammar – that yield a complete Later Stone Age sequence (late Upper Palaeolithic), including the transition from Late Pleistocene to Holocene, r...

Communal granaries are a widespread and very significant feature of northwest Africa. Here the first systematic archaeobotanical study of such a granary is presented, with desiccated plant macro-remains retrieved from the pre-Hispanic site of El Álamo-Acusa, Gran Canaria, Spain (cal. ad 1000–1500). While modern contamination caused by animals was e...
