The Aarhus University network for Science and Technology in Archaeological Research (AU STAR) is an interdisciplinary research and talent development network that aims to catalyze and support natural science applications in archaeology. The objective of the network is to explore the complex interplay between humans and nature through time, as well as the long-term effects of such processes in the formation of landscapes and anthropic spatial organization.
