Internal PLANTCULT workshop and Consortium meeting, 16-17 February 2018, University of Hohenheim, Germany.

Tania Valamoti joined partners Hans-Peter Stika and Andreas Heiss at the University of Hohenheim for their annual consortium meeting, together with Ferran Antolin who represented Basel.

On this occasion a workshop was organised on the 16th of February where postdoctoral researcher Marian Berihuete Azorin presented her fascinating research on the ethnography of Gruenkern and on her charring experiments which will facilitate the interpretation of the archaeological finds. Ferran Antolin presented his work on recording and classifying in a first attempt the bread/resin/dung finds from Swiss lake dwellings. Elena Marinova, invited external collaborator to the project presented us with some fascinating finds of processed cereals from Hierankopolis in Egypt. Everything was covered in beautiful snow during our meeting.
