Upper Paleolithic of Middle Dniester: Doroshivtsi III site Spatial

As a result of excavations of the Doroshivtsi III open-air site in the Middle Dniester region, seven Upper Paleolithic cultural levels were discovered in the 12 m thick loess profile. With the exception of level 1 with very few artifacts, all other cultural levels could be determined as Gravettian. The richest collections belong to level 3 and 6. Level 6 is dated to 22,330 ± 100 BP, and represents an original UP industry with shouldered points, a small amount of burins, and numerous backed tools made mainly...

A semantic wiki as repository to review published palaeo-data in East Africa SFB806 doi Spatial

Our research interests in palaeo-studies in East Africa remain high, partly because of the Out-of-Africa hypotheses predicting Homo sapiens origin to be situated in East Africa. Since several decades archaeologists and geoscientists explore suitable sites to answer related questions. Simultaneously, analytical methods applied to the archives improved in their sensibility or resolution over the given time. The amount of published scientific data is enormous, but has to be carefully checked on their...

GIS-basierte Distanzanalysen für die Modellierung von Einzugsgebieten prähistorischer Fundstätten SFB806 doi Spatial

Die Bewohner einer archäologischen Fundstätte müssen sich regelmäßig mit Ressourcen versorgen, dabei geht man davon aus, dass die Fläche die er dazu nutzen kann, durch seine fußläufige Mobilität begrenzt ist. Die Geschwindigkeit mit der der Mensch sich durch seine Umwelt bewegen kann, ist dabei, neben seiner physiologie, maßgeblich durch topographische Faktoren beeinflusst. Die Arbeit untersucht die Möglichkeit mit Hilfe von Berechnung der hangneigungsabhängigen Gehgeschwindigkeit Einzugsgebiete (Site...

Environmental dynamics and luminescence chronology from the Orlovat loess-paleosol sequence (Vojvodina, northern Serbia) doi Spatial

The Carpathian Basin contains some of the best preserved loess deposits in Europe, including some of the continent's longest and best resolved climate records. Large areas of the basin have been intensively investigated in recent years, although deposits in the east remain largely unstudied, despite considerable regional variation in climate records. Here we discuss the sedimentary record exposed in the Orlovat brickyard using detailed litho- and pedo-stratigraphic, enviromagnetic parameters and...

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...

Les carnivores des gisements néolithiques et protohistoriques du nord du Maroc / The neolithic and protohistoric camivorafrom northern Morocco. doi Spatial

The north Morocco neolithic and protohistoncal archaeological levels yielded a dozen species of Carnivora. The Canidae are represented by Lycaon sp , Vulpes vulpes, Cams famiharis, Cams aureus and perhaps an other species of Cams For the Fehdae, besides Panthera leo, Panthera pardus and Fehs silvestns we note the presence of medium size felines like Fehs serval and Fehs caracal. The measurements indicate in fact that the bear (Ursus arctos) was small and thickset a high intraspecific variability of dog and...

Genesis of loess-like sediments and soils at the foothills of the Banat Mountains, Romania - Examples from the Paleolithic sites Romanesti and Cosava doi Spatial

The Paleolithic sites Romanesti and Cosava, situated at the foothills of the Banat Mountains in Romania, provide an important testament of life of the first European modern humans (Homo sapiens sapiens) during the Middle Pleniglacial. Even though these sites have been extensively excavated, little is known about the site formation of related loess-like sediments and soils. First luminescence data at the two investigated sections confirm sediments from the penultimate glacial period to the Holocene. ...

The Late Pleistocene Belotinac section (southern Serbia) at the southern limit of the European loess belt: Environmental and climate reconstruction using grain size and stable C and N isotopes doi Spatial

The Belontinac loess section is one of the southernmost loess-paleosol environmental archives for the Late Quaternary in Serbia. The climate at this site is intermediate between the continental and the Mediterranean realms, which makes this loess archive potentially highly sensitive to past climatic changes. This paper presents new insights into the paleoenvironmental history during the last glacial period in southern Serbia using grain size and isotope proxy data. The grain size parameters from the...

Late Quaternary ecosystem and climate interactions in SW Balkans inferred from Lake Prespa sediments Spatial

The transboundary Lake Prespa and its watershed enclose a remarkable biodiversity that is protected by several national and international treaties. Situated at 849 m a.s.l., the area is characterized by a transitional climate and the closed nature of the basin controls Lake Prespa’s modern hydrology. An 18 m-long sediment sequence was retrieved from a distal location, away from stream inflow, where preliminary hydroacoustic investigations suggested undisturbed sedimentation. Consequently, the sediments were...
