A geochemical approach on reconstructing Upper Pleistocene environmental conditions from wadi deposits - an example from the Wadi Sabra (Jordan) doi Spatial

Stratified Upper Pleistocene sediment sequences have been geochemically investigated in the arid environment of the Wadi Sabra (Southern Jordan). The wadi fills are associated to archaeological finds of Upper Palaeolithic to Epipalaeolithic age and intended for a reconstruction of palaeoenvironmental conditions during and after the time of the initial human occupation. As the mineralogical and sedimentological composition of the sediments is highly influenced by the nature of the local source rock, the...

Mapping the distribution of weathered Pleistocene wadi deposits in Southern Jordan using ASTER, SPOT-5 data and laboratory spectroscopic analysis doi Spatial

In the arid regions of the Levant, ancient wadi fills act as a terrestrial sedimentary archive with a high potential for preserving archaeological findings. This current study combines remote sensing with laboratory VIS-spectroscopy to investigate the spatial distribution of alluvial wadi fills in a small catchment in Southern Jordan. Due to its homogeneous sandstone geology, the composition of the alluvial sediments is highly influenced by the local bedrock whilst fluvial relocation and surface weathering...

Boni Island - Holozäne Landschaftsdynamik und Mensch-Umwelt-Beziehung am Vierten Nil-Katarakt (Nord-Sudan) Spatial

Der Vierte Nil-Katarakt im Nord-Sudan ist im Jahr 2008 im Hamdab-Stausee untergegangen. Geowissenschaftlich und archäologisch bislang kaum erforscht, stellte er eine einzigartige landschaftliche Versuchsanordnung dar. Am Beispiel der Insel Boni, die für die vorliegende Studie vor der Flutung im Rahmen des Sonderforschungsbereichs 389 untersucht wurde, wird gezeigt, dass die tektonisch angelegte Kleinkammerung des Reliefs und die nachfolgende, periodisch und saisonal stark wechselnde fluviale und äolische...

Kultur- und Landschaftswandel im ariden Afrika (Exkurs O. Bubenzer: Wüstenränder - sensitive ökologische, ökonomische und soziale Räume) Spatial

In vielen Trockengebieten der Erde haben der Klimawandel, ein überdurchschnittlich hoher Bevölkerungsdruck und eine zunehmende Ressourcen-, Nahrungsmittel- und Energienachfrage zu Landnutzungsänderungen, Migration, Ausweitung von Bewässerungsflächen oder zunehmender Verstädterung und damit einhergehenden Prozessen der Bodendegradation oder gar Desertifikation sowie zu physischem oder ökonomischem Wassermangel geführt. Während in prähistorischer Zeit das menschliche Handeln von den naturräumlichen...

Towards a Reconstruction of Land Use Potential - Case Studies from the Western Desert of Egypt doi Spatial

This chapter is situated in the field among archaeology, geomorphology, and ecology. Two case studies from different east-Saharan landscape units classify and analyse archaeological, geoscientific, and remote-sensing data of Early and Mid-Holocene archaeological sites. The section combines the approaches of landscape ecology and landscape archaeology. The aim is a parameterisation of the research areas with respect to structural and ecological features. The data were used within a Geographical...

Geoarchaeological site documentation and analysis of 3D data derived by terrestrial laser scanning doi

Terrestrial laser scanning was conducted to document and analyse sites of geoarchaeological interest in Jordan, Egypt and Spain. In those cases, the terrestrial laser scanner LMS-Z420i from Riegl was used in combination with an accurate RTK-GPS for georeferencing of the point clouds. Additionally, local surveying networks were integrated by established transformations and used for indirect registration purposes. All data were integrated in a workflow that involves different software and according...

Archaeological database containing Iberian sites with Middle and/ or Upper Palaeolithic assemblages Spatial Temporal

All sites of the Iberian Peninsula incorporated into the study (n = 152) published in 2012 (Schmidt et al. 2012). The presence or absence (-) of archaeological complexes (SOL = Solutrean&=& GRA = Gravettian&=& EUP = early Upper Palaeolithic&=& LMP = late Middle Palaeolithic, as defined in the text) is listed for each site. The presence of single (s), multiple (m) or a priori unknown (x) stratigraphical subunits is noted for each complex. The ID number...
