Back to the lithics: technological comparison of early Upper Palaeolithic assemblages from Al-Ansab/ Jordan, Româneşti-Dumbrăviţa/ Romania and Fumane/ Italy database SFB806 doi Spatial Temporal

The dissertation addresses the technological variability in the European and Levantine early Upper Palaeolithic (eUP). The eUP is often linked to the major dispersal event of H. sapiens into Europe and the final affirmation of our species into the Eurasian continent over the 43–38 ka cal BP timespan. The main feature is the introduction of bladelets, elongated items less than 12 mm wide, whose production processes are the hallmark for technocomplexes. The principal difference is the disassociation of blades...

Dataset of Upper Palaeolithic site probability in Lower Austria SFB806 doi Spatial Temporal

This dataset includes all geodata of the Upper Palaeolithic predictive modelling in lower Austria by Boemke et al. (accepted). This study analyses the geospatial behaviour of 23 Upper Palaeolithic sites in Lower Austria. A new approach is applied, combining the advantages of a classical deductive method with the capabilities of machine learning, implemented via the MaxEnt software. The result is a predictive model for an area of 7850 km², exploring the potential for the presence of Upper Palaeolithic sites....

Geodata of continuous and discontinuous permafrost during the last glacial maximum in Europe SFB806 doi Spatial Temporal

This geodata contains shapefiles of continous and discontinous permafrost during the last glacial maximum in Europe as published in Lehmkuhl et al. (accepted). The data is based on published maps (Andrieux et al., 2016; Ruszkiczay-Rüdiger and Kern, 2016; Vandenberghe et al., 2014). Further methodological information can be found in Lehmkuhl et al. (in press). A layer package file is included that can be used to obtain the same visual appearance as published. References Andrieux, E., Bertran, P.,...

Geodata of paleochannels on dry continental shelves in Europe during the last glacial maximum SFB806 doi Spatial Temporal

To investigate potential source areas of loess during the last glacial maximum, dry continental shelfs and their paleochannels were mapped for Europe (Lehmkuhl et al., accepted). The shapefile of dry continental shelf after Willmes (2015) was modified, as it did not include areas covered by ice. The shapefile was expanded using the LGM glaciation (Ehlers et al., 2011). Additionally, it was aligned to fit the used country shapefile (www.naturalearthdata.com) of the loess map. A layer package file can be used...

Geodata of northern timberline in Europe during the last glacial maximum SFB806 doi Spatial Temporal

This geodataset includes the northern timberline in Europe during the last glacial maximum as published in Lehmkuhl et al. (in press). It is based on Grichuk, 1992, but was modified. A layer package file can be used to obtain the same visual appearance as published. See further details in the publication. References Grichuk, V.P., 1992. Main types of vegetation (ecosystems) for the maximum cooling of the last glaciation., in: In: Frenzel, B., Pecsi, B. Velichko, A.A. (Eds.): Atlas of Palaeoclimates and...

Geodata of European loess domains SFB806 doi Spatial Temporal

We present a new map of the distribution of aeolian sediments (mainly loess) and major potential source areas for Europe in Lehmkuhl et al. (in press). The map was compiled combining geodata of different mapping approaches. Most of the used geodata stems from accurate national maps of 27 different countries. Problematic aspects such as different nomenclatures across administrative borders were carefully investigated and revised. The result is a seamless map, which comprises pedological, geological, and...

Geodata of alluvial fill and fluvial deposits in Europe during the last glacial maximum SFB806 doi Spatial Temporal

For the investigation of potential source areas of loess in Europe, alluvial fill and fluvial deposits were mapped. The mapping is based on different national and pan-European datasets. The methodological approach is reported in Lehmkuhl et al. (in press). This geodataset contains a shapefiles of "alluvial fill and fluvial deposits" according to the European loess map published by Lehmkuhl et al. (in press). A layer package file can be used to obtain the same visual appearance as published. ...

Geodata of European loess, sandy loess and aeolian sand SFB806 doi Spatial Temporal

We present a new map of the distribution of aeolian sediments (mainly loess) and major potential source areas for Europe. The map was compiled combining geodata of different mapping approaches. Most of the used geodata stems from accurate national maps of 27 different countries. Problematic aspects such as different nomenclatures across administrative borders were carefully investigated and revised. The result is a seamless map, which comprises pedological, geological, and geomorphological data and can be...

OSL data of the Balta Alba Kurgan loess-paleosol sequence, Romania SFB806 doi Spatial Temporal

This is the DRAC file (cf. Durcan et al., 2015) used for age calculation of the optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dating data from the Balta Alba Kurgan loess-paleosol sequence in Romania. This dataset corresponds to the luminescence age data published in Scheidt et al. (2020). The sample names in the first column are encoded as follows: Profile-number_sample-number_protocol. So for example sample BAK1_1_IR50 gives the results of conventional IRSL at 50°C measurements for sample no. 1 in profile BAK1....

A preliminary model of Upper Pleistocene landscape evolution in the Wadi Sabra (Jordan) based on geoarchaeological investigations. Spatial Temporal

While there is almost no doubt about the African origin of modern humans,1 the path of dispersal and final immigration into Europe is still under debate.2 Our project focuses on the Levant as a potential main corridor for human migrations from Africa to Europe during the Middle and Upper Palaeolithic. It is embedded in the multi-disciplinary CRC 806 “Our Way to Europe,” also investigating other regions including the source areas in North-East Africa, the North-African/Southern-European-Corridor, the...
