Welcome!

The Interdisciplinary Center for Archaeology and Evolution of Human Behaviour is a research center based at the University of Algarve (Southern Portugal), bringing together a group of foreigner and national researchers with a main goal: developing research and contribute to a better understanding of the evolution of human behavior from an archaeological and anthropological perspective. Research is organized in three groups - Prehistoric coastal adaptations, African archaeology and Human Evolution, Development of complex societies - focusing mostly on the emergence of Anatomically Modern Humans, hunter-gatherer coastal adaptations, the development of complex societies, and african archaeology using different disciplines and methodological approaches, such as geoarchaeology, use-wear analysis, zooarchaeology, paleobotany and GIS. Currently, ICArEHB members are actively participating in a large number of projects taking place across Europe and Africa.
