Human Adaptations to the Last Glacial Maximum: The Solutrean and its Neighbors Temporal

The book assembles new insights into humanity’s social, cultural and economic developments during the Last Glacial Maximum in Western Europe and adjacent regions. It gathers original, up-to-date research results on the Solutrean techno-complex, reflecting four major fields of research: data from current excavations; analysis of lithic assemblages; new results from studies on climatic conditions and human-environmental interactions; and insights into artistic expressions. New methodological and analytical...

Palaeoenvironmental variabilities: A multi-proxy study of lacustrine sediments from salt lakes in the Antequera region (Andalusia), Southern Spain

Within the framework of the work of the Collaborative Research Centre 806 which investigates the history of the humankind, a multi-proxy analysis was applied on lacustrine sediments of Andalusia, Southern Spain. In this study different methods were applied on the sediments of the Laguna Dulce, Laguna Salada, Laguna de la Ratosa and the Laguna del Gosque to gain valuable information about past climate and environment, like the magnetic susceptibility, the X-ray fluorescence method and pollen analysis. Salt...

Lakustrine Sedimente der Laguna de Fuente de Piedra: Ein Vergleich von zwei RFA-Messgeräten mittels statistischer Parameter

The geochemical element analysis is an important part of the examination of lacustrine sediments for paleoclimatic reconstructions. X-ray fluorescence analysis is thereby one of the most important methods. Generally, stationary measuring devices are used, but nowadays cost-effective, portable instruments are used more and more. Subject of this work is the comparison of the high-resolution stationary ITRAX core scanner with the portable, allterrain Niton XLt 700 series environmental analyzer. Lake sediments...

Laguna Hondilla und Laguna de la Paja (Südspanien): Eine Paläoklimatische Betrachtung mittels multi-proxy Untersuchung

The Collaborative Research Centre 806 established by the universities of Cologne, Bonn and Aachen reconstructs climatic conditions on the Iberian Peninsula in the quaternary. Lake sediments are especially useful for these reconstructions because of their high-resolution, interruption-free record of the palaeoenvironment. This thesis therefore examines the lithological and geochemical composition of lake sediments from Laguna Hondilla and Laguna de la Paja, including sedimentological analysis as well as...

Endorheische Becken in SW-Spanien: eine GIS-Vorerkundung zu weiterführenden Paläoumwelt-Studien Spatial

To understand paleoenvironment and its evolution, paleoenvironmental reconstruction is indispensable. Various climate archives containing data of several thousands of years allow conclusions about environmental conditions in prehistoric times. On the Iberian Peninsula such significant data can be found in lacustrine depositions in endorheic salt lakes. The Collaborative Research Centre 806 (CRC 806) established by the universities of Cologne, Bonn and Aachen examines the history and migration of humanity...

Sedimentologische und geochemische Studie an Ablagerungen im Einzugsgebiet der „Laguna de Medina“; Südspanien

The Laguna de Medina is a semi-permanent shallow inland lake in Andalucía, South Spain. It is an ideal climate record so it is under paleolimnical investigation by the Collaborative Research Centre 806, which is investigating the way of mankind from Africa to Europe. Therefore, it was necessary to check the official geological map of the region in order to adjust it if it is necessary. Therefor were taken soil samples around the lake. Following that, the samples were examined in view of sedimentological und...

Umweltgeschichte der Laguna de Medina, Südspanien – ein geochemischer Ansatz

Diese Arbeit behandelt einen 26 m langen Sedimentkern aus der Laguna de Medina, ein See in Cádiz, der südlichsten Provinz Spaniens. Die Bohrkampagne fand im Rahmen des SFB 806 „Our way to Europe“ im März 2015 statt. Zielsetzung der Arbeit ist die Identifikation und Interpretation von Veränderungen in der Umweltgeschichte des Sees mit Hilfe geochemischer Methoden. So wurden Kohlenstoff-, Stickstoff- und Schwefel-Gehalte (C, N, S) mit dem „vario microtube“ der Firma Elementar bestimmt, während der „Dimatoc...

Korngrößenverteilung in der Sedimentabfolge der Laguna de Medina, Südspanien

Bei der Untersuchung von Proben des Sedimentbohrkerns CO1313 (N 36°37’04,380; W 06°03’12,720) aus der Laguna de Medina im Südwesten Spaniens wurde die Korngrößenverteilung ermittelt, um Aussagen über den klimatisch gesteuerten Eintrag der Sedimente zu treffen. Die Sedimentsequenz liefert eine kontinuierliche Abfolge von siltigen Tonen. Die enthaltenen feinen Sande wurden vermutlich durch äolische Einträge aus der Sahara geliefert und traten während kalter und arider Bedingungen mit verstärkten Winden aus...

Mikropaläontologische Untersuchung an den Sedimenten der Laguna Salada (Spanien)

Nowadays it is taken as demonstrated, that Modern Man developed in Africa and then spread throughout western Eurasia. But what induced the humans to leave their homeland and which routes they used to get to Eurasia is nowhere near to be sufficiently investigated. There is a good case to believe that the humans were forced to resettle by extraneous circumstances, such as drastic climatic changes. To answer the question of their motives and their migratory route in a satisfactory manner, "climatic archives"...

Towards a revised stratigraphy for the Middle to Upper Palaeolithic Transition at La Güelga (Narciandi, Asturias, Spain) - Micromorphological investigations and new radiocarbon data

The archaeological sequence of the Palaeolithic site of La Güelga apparently shows an interstratification of Aurignacian between Mousterian and Châtelperronian layers, a sequence which disagrees with the stratigraphic model for the Middle to Upper Palaeolithic transition in SW-Europe. We analyzed the witness section of the interior sector in archaeological zone D using micromorphology and collected new radiocarbon dates for the Aurignacian and presumably Châtelperronian levels in order to provide...

GIS-Based Automated Landform Classification for Analysis of Archaeological Sites

This poster presents the first results of an attempt to classify archaeological sites by landform analysis of the landscape. To make further use of modelled DEM-derived site catchments, it is possible to classify the relief to be able to compare the sites environment quantitatively. To achieve that goal, we implemented the TPI-based landform classification approach from Weiss (2001) in ArcGIS and applied it to a study area in Andalusia (Spain) to compare the results for various Solutrean sites. The applied...
