Clemence PagnouxMy PhD research focused on fruit tree cultivation in Greece from Neolithic to Roman period. I studied written evidence and archaeobotanical remains (seeds and fruits), and I conducted morphometric analyses on grape and olive remains. My research aimed to study the processes of cultivation and domestication of fruit trees.

My research interests include vegetation history, food history, ancient agriculture and fruit tree cultivation.

In the framework of the PLANTCULT project, I will focus on grape an olive remains. Using geometric morphometry, I attempt to give more details about the first domesticated olive and grapevines in Greece, and about the evolution of cultivated varieties from the Neolithic to the Iron Age.
