Leading research to understand human evolution from archaeological and anthropological perspectives

About ICArEHB Research


The Interdisciplinary Center for Archaeology and Evolution of Human Behaviour (ICArEHB) is an international research center within the University of Algarve in Faro, Portugal.

The mission of ICArEHB is to develop an integrative understanding of past human adaptations. We seek to establish interdisciplinary perspectives to address key aspects of the human journey by investigating the archaeological record and using present analogs, including extant primates, to model behavioral resilience, change, and innovation through time.

ICArEHB research is organized into 5 research themes. Click HERE to learn more about them and which ones may interest you.
