Abstract

Marine faunal remains from Grotta d’Oriente (Favignana Island, NW Sicily) offer invaluable snapshots of humancoastalenvironment interaction in the central Mediterranean from the Late Pleistocene to the Middle Holocene.The long-term shellfish and fish records reflect human exploitation of coastal environments undergoing considerablereorganizations during the postglacial sea level rise and the progressive isolation of Favignana frommainland Sicily. We detected an intensification of marine resource exploitation between ∼9.6 ka and ∼7.8 kaBP, which corresponds with the isolation of Favignana Island and, later on, with the introduction of early agropastoraleconomy in this region. We suggest that a higher investment in marine resource exploitation by lateforagers and early farmers in NW Sicily was also supported by an increase in marine productivity in the southTyrrhenian Sea in the Middle Holocene.
