Peter Ditchfield mostly deals with Paleontology, Lithic technology, Archaeology, Pleistocene and Oldowan. His study on Paleontology is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Fauna. His work carried out in the field of Lithic technology brings together such families of science as Glacial period and Period.
His research in the fields of Assemblage and Radiocarbon dating overlaps with other disciplines such as Pretreatment method. Peter Ditchfield interconnects Population growth, Ethnology, Cave and Subsistence agriculture in the investigation of issues within Pleistocene. Peter Ditchfield combines subjects such as Biostratigraphy, Artifact and Archaeological evidence with his study of Oldowan.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Archaeology, Paleontology, Pleistocene, Cave and Ecology. As a part of the same scientific study, Peter Ditchfield usually deals with the Archaeology, concentrating on Tephra and frequently concerns with Vulcanian eruption. His work on Paleontology deals in particular with Cretaceous, Acheulean, Early Pleistocene, Biostratigraphy and Structural basin.
His studies deal with areas such as Fauna, Stone tool, Quaternary and Holocene as well as Pleistocene. Peter Ditchfield has included themes like Later Stone Age and Chronology in his Cave study. The concepts of his Oldowan study are interwoven with issues in Assemblage, Lithic technology, Archaeological record and Human evolution.
Peter Ditchfield focuses on Archaeology, Paleontology, Ecology, Cave and Pleistocene. His study in Archaeology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Livestock and Fauna. Peter Ditchfield has researched Paleontology in several fields, including Arboreal locomotion and Tree canopy.
In general Ecology study, his work on Mammal and Taphonomy often relates to the realm of Shellfish, Hum and Phytolith, thereby connecting several areas of interest. In his study, Thermoluminescence dating, Iberomaurusian, Tephra and Tephrochronology is strongly linked to Chronology, which falls under the umbrella field of Cave. His Pleistocene course of study focuses on Range and Biochronology, Quaternary and Rift valley.
Peter Ditchfield mainly investigates Archaeology, Archaeological science, Mesolithic, Radiocarbon dating and Geochemistry. Archaeology is frequently linked to Loss on ignition in his study. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Oldowan, Lithic technology, Texture, Use-wear analysis and Human evolution.
Peter Ditchfield has included themes like Alluvium, Archaeological record, Context, Geochronology and Sedimentary depositional environment in his Oldowan study. His studies in Pleistocene integrate themes in fields like Range, Sediment, Arid, Desert climate and Physical geography. Iberomaurusian is a primary field of his research addressed under Paleontology.
