We would like to invite you to the lecture entitled ‘The First Harvesters: early evolution of crop harvesting techniques in the Mediterranean’ by Niccolò Mazzuco (French National Centre for Scientific Research) and Juan Francisco Gibaja (Spanish National Research Council). The lecture will take place on 25 th January 2018, 14:00, at the Museum of the City of Skopje and will focus on technological evolution following the emergence of agriculture in the Neolithic. A special emphasis will be put on the Neolithic population which brought domesticated crops from the Middle East to Europe, but also technologies, tools and knowledge necessary for their cultivation, harvesting, preserving, processing and consuming. The lecture will encompass tools used in agriculture and the manner of their production and use. This event is organized by the Center for Prehistoric Research and the Museum of the City of Skopje and is realized as a result of the cooperation with the Spanish National Research Council, which analyzes the technologies implemented in the manufacture of agricultural tools used in the Neolithic settlements in Macedonia.
