Research Interests: prehistory of the Middle East, Epipaleolithic, Natufian, Mesolithic, Neolithization process, Epigravettian of Italy, Neolithization of Europe, ground-stone tools, grinding implements, use-wear studies, experimental archaeology, technology, design theory
Laure Dubreuil joined the department in September 2010. She received her B.Sc. and M.Sc. at the University of Aix-Marseille, and her DEA, Ph.D. in Prehistory at the University of Bordeaux. Her geographic focus of archaeological research is Southwest Asia and Europe. She is particularly interested in material culture analysis, especially ground stone tool technology of the Paleolithic, Mesolithic, and Neolithic periods. Her work also focused on use-wear studies, and experimental archaeology. She is currently involved in several research projects in Israel (SSHRC), Jordania, Greece, Portugal and Italy.
