The analysis of socio-economic process which has made possible the origins of production economy, has been one of the main research areas in Archaeology during this century. Previous archaeological fieldwork made by the Tell Halula Spanish Archaeological Mission (Eufrates Valley, Syria) has discovered a site settled without interruption between 9500BP-7000BP. The relevance of archaeological evidence discovered during that excavation allows new ideas about the neolitization process in the Near East, especially some of the most debating problems; the rythm, shape and domestication areas for sheep, goat and cattle, the adoption of new techniques for making lithic tools, the characteristics of the first pottery, the exchange of goods at that time, etc. The main goal of this project is to developed a set of analysis able to obtain the more information, the better from archaeological evidence.
