Meet Frido!

Frido is a member of the PaleoMIX team at the University of Copenhagen. His research group is interested in using innovative biomolecular methods, particularly the study of ancient proteins, to study human evolution across the last one million years, from phyloproteomic analysis to the integration of palaeoproteomics into zooarchaeological research practices. He is currently leading…

Parallel worlds and mixed economies: multi-proxy analysis reveals complex subsistence systems at the dawn of early farming in the northeast Baltic

We’re thrilled to announce the publication of a recent scientific study titled “Parallel worlds and mixed economies: multi-proxy analysis reveals complex subsistence systems at the dawn of early farming in the northeast Baltic.” Farming arrived in the NE Baltic with migrating Corded Ware cultures in the early 3rd millennium cal BCE, but here this new…
