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"...

The “German Albanian Palaeolithic” Programme (GAP): A status report Temporal

Since 2009 the German Albanian Palaeolithic project (GAP) examines two open-air and three cave sites in different parts of Albania. The data obtained allow a first assessment of the potentials as well as challenges posed by these archives. While evidence for human occupation in the postglacial period and subsequent Holocene is plentiful, older traces are still scanty. Multiple factors are responsible for this bias of which to mention above all is climatic impact and postglacial landscape modification. Two...

The Aurignacian way of life: Contextualizing early modern human adaptation in the Carpathian Basin doi Temporal

The culture and dispersal of early modern humans are top priorities of many research agendas. While the debate primarily centers on genetics, dispersal trajectories and points of earliest presence, the context (climate, landscape, demography, culture) of the colonizing process is usually considered in a coarse-grained manner or even ignored. To understand the context of human dispersal and to decipher relevant push and pull factors requires the consideration of multiple environmental proxies and the...

Archaeology across the Pleistocene-Holocene boundary in western Germany: Human responses to rapid environmental change

In recent years, new insights into the Mesolithic in the Rhineland and in Westphalia have been gained. The Early Mesolithic human remains of the Blätterhöhle in Hagen should especially be mentioned as they even attracted international attention. Additionally, a first stratigraphic sequence containing hearth remains and lithic assemblages of the Early to Late Mesolithic age has been excavated there. Further new sites and radiometric investigations on single finds suggest varying influences from...

Conference report: The 26th Annual Meeting of the German Mesolithic Workgroup

organised and hosted by Annabell Zander (University of York) and Birgit Gehlen (CRC 806, University of Cologne). In sum, more than 70 academics, students and amateur archaeologists from 8 different countries attended this conference. The international programme consisted of 24 talks and 10 poster presentations which were held in English and German. The presentations ranged from international to regional themes concerning the Final Palaeolithic, Mesolithic and Early Neolithic.

Blazi Cave - an in situ Epigravettian site in Albania SFB806 doi

The Epigravettian site of Blazi cave represents so far the only undisturbed and securly dated Epigravettian site in Albania. The new data fill a research gap for the time of the Late Upper Palaeolithic in the Eastern Adriatic. During the GAP (German-Albanian Palaeolithic research project) campaign in 2015, a large sample of stone artefacts and animal bones was excavated. Their spatial distribution and good preservation indicate an in situ position of the archaeological layer. The tool spectrum contains a...

Carpatian Basin 30ky bp GIS data set SFB806 doi Spatial PaleoMaps

To provide paleoenvironmental data for a GIS and geostatistic based Species Distribution Modelling (SDM) application, this comprehensive GIS data set was created. The data set consists of DEM based topography, and of paleoclimate layers, that were used as environmental predictor variables for SDM application.
