Abstract
Dental microwear analyses have shown to reflect important information of diet and feeding behaviour in ancient human groups. Quantitative works on molar tooth microwear in bioarchaeological populations have provided excellent data that explain the differences in subsistence economies among different ecological niches. In this study we examine preliminary buccal tooth microwear results in Bronze Age human groups from Spain. The microwear density and length by orientation recorded on micrographs using a scanning electron microscope (SEM) showed inter-group differences related to the amount of abrasives in the diet that could correspond to a different dependence on agricultural resources or food preparation technology.
