Dafna Langgut
Tel Aviv University

Dr. Dafna Langgut is the Head of the Laboratory of Archaeobotany and Ancient Environments and a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Archaeology and Ancient Near Eastern Cultures at Tel Aviv University. She holds a Ph.D. in archaeology from Haifa University. Langgut specializes in the study of past vegetation and climate based on the identification of botanical remains, which allows her to consider the past relationship between humans and the environment, e.g. human dispersal out of Africa and the beginning of cultivation. Her research also involves the identification of micro-botanical remains (mainly pollen) and macro-botanical remains (wood-charcaol remains) from archaeological contexts, which allows her to address questions related to agricultural practices, diet, plant usage, social stratification,  plant migration, ancient gardens and wooden implements. Langgut is also the curator of pollen and archaeobotanical collections at the Steinhardt Museum of Natural History, Tel Aviv University.
