Description

Mochena Borago Rockshelter in southwest Ethiopia provides one of the most important archaeological sites for investigations on human adaptions and environmental changes during MIS3 and MIS1 in East Africa. Excavations started in 1996 by a French team led by R. Joussaume, pursued by S. Brandt and E. Hildebrand in the framework of the Southwest Ethiopia Archaeological Project (SWEAP). Since 2009, joint research between SWEAP and the CRC 806 focuses on Late Pleistocene cultural processes and environmental contexts of modern human dispersal from Africa to Europe.
