Préhistoires méditerranéennes is a journal published on a number of supports, with a peer-review committee based at the Université d’Aix-en-Provence. In 2009, the journal took over from the Préhistoire Anthropologie Méditerranéennes (PAM), which was founded in 1982. It is open to all original contributions focussing on the prehistory of Mediterranean territories. Its ambition is to reflect the multiplicity of the discipline’s activities—from taphonomy to cave art—across the Mediterranean, and covering the full diversity of its geographical, cultural and social contexts. The journal publishes a constant stream of contributions in French and English, which are collated each year in a paper edition. It also offers theme issues as supplements.

    This workshop rose up after two years of research conducted on the dietary practices during the Neolithic and Bronze Age thanks to anthropological and isotopic analyses. After this research we have thought really necessary to join our results to other archaeological and environmental disciplines working on foodstuff economy as well as to develop an exchange network in the European areas on this topic. Papers presented in this workshop reflect all the different approaches used in archaeological Sciences and the importance of multidisciplinary studies to improve our knowledge on past population behaviours.

    We are very grateful to the Fondation Nestlé France for supporting our work on dietary patterns during these last years as well as the organization and publication of this Workshop. We are indebted to INRAP and to our collaborators. We also thank the UMR 7269 LAMPEA and all the laboratory members as well as the Maison Méditerranéenne des Sciences de l’Homme - Aix-en-Provence.
