During the foreign research internship (BEPE), with the specialized orientation of Prof. Dr. Marco Madella, we will perform the processing of the sediments collected at the archaeological site Lapa do Santo and the analysis of the identified botanic micro remains. This is necessary to verify if the identified micro remains retained in the lithic ones reflect their use in the past or if they come from contamination by the site environment (sediment). (AU)
