Climate Change and the Origins of Agriculture in Western Asia: A Story of Risk, Resilience, and Sustainable Foraging During Cycles of Wet and Dry Conditions
Oriental Institute, Chicago IL
Oriental Institute
Cold/dry climatic forcing is often cited as a direct cause of the origins of agriculture in western Asia. However, this does not fit with the lack of evidence for cultivation in the Natufian period. Microbotanical analyses suggest late Pleistocene foragers were resilient risk-adverse foragers during cold/dry episodes, allowing the continuity of forager lifeways. Foragers only took risks with collection and low-level cultivation of a smaller range of productive plant resources such as wild cereals during times of warm/wet, stable climates.
