Visiting Research Fellow
Pascal Flohr is a researcher on the Endangered Archaeology in the Middle East and North Africa (EAMENA) project, based at the University of Oxford. In this project remote sensing is used to identify and document archaeological and cultural heritage sites, which are recorded in the Arches EAMENA database. Within the EAMENA project Pascal focuses mainly on Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Lebanon, and on prehistoric sites. Her own research is centred on human-environment interactions in the ancient Middle East, and has included studying past water availability using crop as well as speleothem stable isotopes and assessing the effects of the arid ‘8.2 ka event’ on early farming societies using archaeological, climatic, and radiocarbon evidence. She is currently studying the Late Neolithic on the Karak Plateau in Jordan. She also has extensive archaeological and experimental fieldwork as well as training experience in the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe.
