Dr. Andrea Ricci and the Mil Plain, Azerbaijan

Dr. Andrea Ricci, a visiting scholar at the Cotsen Institute this past year, has returned to fieldwork in Azerbaijan.This project explores rhythms of mobility and everyday life at a single location among the Late Neolithic (6th mill. BCE) communities of the Mil Plain, SW Azerbaijan. The explorations at site MPS 18 challenge the concept of 'marginality' implicitly attached to both the steppe environmental conditions and the mobile way of life. It also unveils site formation processes and the nature of the anthropic sequence at this site.
