Shifting Diversities: Examples for Changes in Crop Use from the Chalcolithic to the Bronze Age in West­
ern and Central Europe
Hans-Peter Stika {University of Hohenheim, Stuttgart), Andreas G. Heiss {University of Vienna, Vienna)
Environmental archaeology has been efficiently demonstrating that land-use management strategies of prehistoric agrari­
an societies do often differ considerably between regions and periods, and so do their impacts on the landscapes. However,
especially when it comes to supra-regional comparative studies involving modelling, or general questions on the bigger
scope (such as on the importance of certain domesticated crops in larger areas, and their temporal shifts), the available
data qualities are often unpleasantly low. Nevertheless we want to ask for the possible reasons behind narrower and wider
spectra in cultivated crops: is it the varying ecological conditions, the respective agrarian systems, the availability of certain
taxa, cultural preferences in crop-processing and crop use, or rather the societal organisation of subsistence economies?
Presenting new data from the Chalcolithic sites of Zambujal and Alcalar in Portugal as well as the Bronze Age sites of La
Bastida, Tira del Lienzo and San Cayetano in south-eastern Spain, we try to use extant archaeobotanical data in order to
detect supra-regional differences and temporal shifts in subsistence strategies, and explore the possible multi-causal vari­
ations in the respective applied agrarian strategies.
