Ginevra Coradeschi, PhD, integrated member of the HERCULES Laboratory at the University of Évora. I am an archaeologist with a strong background in Archaeobotany. main research focuses on exploring how humans’ communities used plants in the past e.g., for food, fuel, building, ritual purposes. I have experience in the analysis of macroremains with a different conservation status, such as charcoals, waterlogged woods, both charred and mineralised seeds and fruits. My scientific curiosity combined with the strong capacity to work in team and with the possibility to apply different analytical technique allowed me to be involved, in the last few years, in works dealing with different questions and research topics.
