Marcos Garcia is Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Archaeology, University of York. He is BA in History (U. of Granada, 2011), MSc in Environmental Archaeology and Palaeoeconomy (U. of Sheffield, 2012), Master in Teachers from Compulsory Secondary Education (U. of Granada, 2019) and International PhD cum laude in History and Arts (U. de Granada, 2019).
His research is focused on the fields of medieval history and archaeology, specializing in the zooarchaeological analysis with the aim of exploring the systems of production, supply, consumption and preparation of animal products in the past. He is particularly interested in the analysis of food systems as a way to contribute to the examination of social processes during the Late Antiquity, medieval and early modern periods. In addition, he is interested in the use of history in current identity discourses, the learning and educational practices of social sciences and the role played by the transference –particularly to youngsters– of the knowledge about the past in the formation of collective memory.
