Bisare RiverOpen Air geoscience E 37.854, N 6.847
DescriptionInfluenced by natural conditions and anthropogenic impacts, periodical runoff and actively eroding river valleys lead to gully erosion and badland development within the southwest Ethiopian Highlands. Widespread degraded areas within Bisare River source area have exposed obsidian raw material outcrops and archaeological assemblages of Middle and Later Stone Age (M/LSA). Sedimentological and remote sensing techniques are conducted to understand actual and ancient morphodynamics and their effects on artifact preservation within the Ethiopian Highlands.
The Investigation of the site includes Geophysical Measurements (TEM, ERT).
