Mark Nesbitt - Research Interests

Since starting work at Kew I no longer have time for archaeological fieldwork, but continue to participate in conferences and other aspects of academic life, including advising students and researchers. I act as a referee for research boards including the Arts and Humanities Research Council, NERC and NSF, and for journals including Current Anthropology, Economic Botany,  Journal of Archaeological Science and Vegetation History and Archaeology, as well as various botanical and ethnobotanical journals. My main interests in archaeobotany continue to be:

Hunter-gatherer diet and agricultural origins in the Near East

Long-term agricultural change in Turkey

Wheat domestication

Ethnobotany of wild foods and crops in the Near East

Seed identification and reference collections

Flotation and other aspects of excavation methodology
