Antonio Rodríguez-Hidalgo


I finished my PhD dissertation recently (2015) at the Universitat Rovira i Virgili of Tarragona(Spain). My research focuses on archeological taphonomy or zooarcheology, with emphasis on subsistence strategies during the Paleolithic, hunting, butchering process, modifications generated by carnivores, and the formation fossil accumulations. In parallel I have developed experimental works on taphonomy and other research focusing on human cannibalism and archeo-malacology. I am member of several professional bodies, including the Catalan Association of Bio-archeology (ACBA) and the European Society for the Study of Human Evolution (ESHE), and I am a key team member of Atapuerca Research Team.

Catalan Institute of Human Palaeoecology and Social Evolution (IPHES)
January 2010
Subsistence, Technology and Human Evolution Research Group
The Catalan Institute of Human Paleoecology and Social Evolution (IPHES) is a transdisciplinary institution that promotes advanced research, education and knowledge transfer, and social engagement with science. Therefore, we cross and combine different fields of science, humanities and social sciences, but also geosciences and biosciences to apply them to the study of human and social evolution. Our aim is to promote knowledge both about ancient human species of the past and about human beings today. The IPHES was created in December 2004 as a non-profit foundation through an initiative of the Catalan Government, Rovira i Virgili University (URV) and the City of Tarragona.
