      Controlling for background demographic effects is important for accurately identifying loci that have recently undergone positive selection. To date, the effects of demography have not yet been explicitly considered when ...
    • Origins of pottery technology in the ancient Near East: an examination of the technological and socioeconomic factors that contributed to the innovation and widespread use of pottery 

      Holdridge, Genevieve (Bilkent University, 2004)
      The objective of this thesis is to research the invention and innovation of pottery technology in the Pre-Pottery Neolithic B, in particular the Late and Final PrePottery Neolithic B and Early Pottery Neolithic in the ...
