Early Forms of Social Differentiation. Archeological Evidence in the Levantine Neolithic
(Frühe Formen sozialer Differenzierung. Der archäologische Nachweis im levantinischen Neolithikum)
Dörte Rokitta-Krumnow received her Master’s degree and PhD from Freie Universität Berlin. In her research, she examines the causes and consequences of early social differentiation in the Neolithic of the Levant, by analyzing material findings such as architecture, stone tools, and burial grounds. The project is particularly original in its approach, combining methodological aspects from both archeology and the social sciences.
