Symposium om ældre jernalder: regionalitet i førromersk og romersk jernalder

Fredag d. 27. september 2019

Nordjyllands Historiske Museum viderefører traditionen og inviterer til symposium om ældre jernalder. Temaet for dette års symposium er regionalitet i førromersk og romersk jernalder. Vi ønsker at belyse regionalitet i perioden ud fra både teoretiske perspektiver og genstandsmateriale samt forskellige anlægstyper. Vi håber på, at fagfolk fra både museer og universiteter vil bidrage med viden og perspektivering fra udgravninger, forskningsprojekter, genstandsstudier eller lignende, som kan belyse strukturer på regionalt såvel som overregionalt niveau.
 
Et oplæg må vare 25 minutter efterfulgt af 5 minutters diskussion. Vi arbejder på efterfølgende at samle alle bidrag i en peer reviewed beretning for symposiet.
 
Prisen for deltagelse i symposiet er kr. 175,- inklusive frokost, kaffe og kage i pauserne.
Deadline for tilmelding af oplæg d. 14. august 2019 til niels.haue@aalborg.dk

Tid: fredag d. 27. september 2019 kl. 9.30-17.00
Sted: Portland Salen på Lindholm Høje Museet, Vendilavej 11, 9400 Nørresundby

Der vil være mulighed for afhentning i Aalborg Lufthavn.
Symposiet arrangeres af Lars Egholm Nielsen, Niels Haue, Thomas Rune Knudsen og Karin Johannesen fra Nordjyllands Historiske Museum.

ABSTRACT
Humans have curious dietary proclivities with regard to their evolutionary history. Humans are the only ape to cultivate and process their food post extraction, and it is thought that these activities enable humans to develop and maintain a large metabolically expenses brain. Anthropologists take great interest in the activity of human food production, which is often contrasted with that of modern great apes, in order to reconstruct the intervening 6 million years of evolution since the last common ancestor between humans and chimpanzees. Yet, observations of modern human hunter-gatherers demonstrates that extensive food processing is not essential for survival, and that although food processing technologies were developed thousands of years ago, these activities are not always incorporated into the food systems of various human societies. Notably, the Hadza hunter-gatherers of Tanzania subsist on a variety of wild foods including berries, tubers, baobab, honey, and wild game, and yet food processing in preparation for consumption is rare or situational, despite the high fiber- and resistant starch-content of their foods. The human digestive tract is not well suited to digesting refractory foods, and there is an open question as to how much nutrition groups like the Hadza can obtain from their challenging high-fiber diet. Selection for increased copy number of the salivary amylase gene as well as the function of gut microbiota may give insight about the behaviors relating to diet and nutritional acquisition in the course of human evolution. Investigations that model the activity or expression of genetic and microbial traits provide anthropologists with a new framework for thinking about how ancient human societies subsisted in the absence of extensive food processing technology, and to revisit assumptions about what dietary components may be optimal for human health. In this presentation I talk about the role of plant foods in the human diet and their evolutionary legacy. In doing so, I present some of my earlier research on wild plants the came about from working with the Hadza, and move on to demonstrate evidence for how the gut microbiome can be interrogated as to its role in nutritional provisioning as well as models I use for understanding the physiological relevance of the salivary amylase copy number increase. I end with more recent efforts to reconstruct the microbiome of ancient populations, the techniques used, and a discussion on the state of this research and what may be expected in the future.
