Unterrichtsmaterialien zur Unterrichtseinheit ‚Migration früher und heute – Wo liegen die Unterschiede in den Migrationen?‘ mit dem Fokus auf der Bearbeitung der Frage ‚Warum kam der moderne Mensch nach Europa?‘ SFB806 doi

The materials to the teaching unit „‚Migration in the past and today – Where are the differences in the migrations?’ with the focus on handling the question ‚Why did modern humans came to Europe?’” are developed in the frame of the dissertation „Argumentation as a method to solve problems: A class study to the oral argumentation of pupils in cooperative settings in geography lessons” (Sabrina Dittrich). This dissertation was written in the Collaborative Research Center 806 – ‚Our Way to Europe’. The...

Towards multi-proxy based millennial time scales in Late Pleistocene Danubian Loess-Palaeosol Sequences. Spatial

Late Pleistocene palaeoclimatic records for south-eastern Europe rely largely on loesspalaeosol equences (LPSS). The general spatial scarcity and often limited temporal range of other sedimentary archives assign the LPSS of the region a key role even in millennial scale temporal reconstructions of the Late Pleistocene terrestrial environmental dynamics. In Eurasia, aeolian dust sediments (loess) are widespread in continental mid-latitudes. The Eurasian loess-belt has its western end in the Middle Danube...

Landscapes and Paleolandscapes in south-eastern Europe during Late Quaternary and their relevance for human habitats and dispersal Spatial

Pleistocene landscape dynamics affect climatic and environmental conditions, and may have had a major impact on modern human habitats. In this contribution, reconstructions of modern and late Pleistocene environments based on landscape evolution models are presented and discussed following a series of transects from the Pannonian Basin to the Black Sea. These transects include geomorphological features and landscapes like loess plateaus, dune fields, alluvial plains, the Carpathian Mountains, and their...

Erosion or age overestimation? – the Urluia loess-palaeosol sequence

Aeolian deposits, such as loess, are considered the ideal material for luminescence dating. However, recent studies have revealed problematic discrepancies between different grain size fractions of quartz (e.g., Timar-Gabor, 2015). Nevertheless, the emergence of the pIRIR protocol (e.g., Thiel et al. 2011) gives us another useful tool for the investigation of loess-paleosol sequences, especially in higher dose ranges. This poster presents the luminescence investigation of 13 fine grain samples from the...

Paleoenvironmental analysis of two loess profiles at the Ságvár Lyukas Hill in western Hungary

Paleoenvironmental investigations are undertaken for two loess profiles at the Ságvár Lyukas Hill in western Hungary. The site is known for its Upper Paleolithic findings. It is located ca. 12 km south-east of Siofok at Lake Balaton within a loess landscape, which exhibits dominantly northwest-southeast striking valleys. Granulometric, geochemical, rock magnetic and luminescence analyses were carried out.

Lössverbreitung im Pannonischen Becken - Problematik grenzüberschreitender Geodaten und Lösungsansätze mit GIS für eine Beispielregion (Grenzregion Ungarn-Rumänien) Spatial

To create a map showing the distribution of loess sediments in the Pannonian Basin in the border region of Hungary and Romania several different cross-border spatial data had to be used. Particularly there were problems because of the thematically content of the underlying international geodata, but also because of geodetical basics like projections and lingual barriers, respectively. To solve these identified problems some solutions were made e.g. by using the EU-INSPIRE-directive. However, the most...

Late Pleistocene Rockshelter Stratigraphies and Palaeoenvironments in Northeastern Africa - Case Study Mochena Borago (Ethiopia)

Multiskalige Untersuchungen zur Rekonstruktion geomorphologischer Prozesse im Abri Mochena Borago (Äthiopien) und seinem Einzugsgebiet Spatial Temporal

In prehistoric times the rock shelter Mochena Borago served as a retreat for anatomically modern humans in the southwestern Ethiopian Highlands. During the last decade archaeo-logical analyses helped to gain insight into the history of settlement of the rock shelter in the last 50 ka. Element and micromorphological analyses as well as computer-supported large scale investigations for sediment sources and transport into the rock shelter itself were carried out to understand the depositional history of...

Die Prospektion des steinzeitlichen Fundplatzes auf der Flur Ginsterfeld in Overath

Resümee. Bei Prospektionen auf der Flur Overath-Ginsterfeld im Frühjahr 2014 wurden fast fünfhundert Funde eingemessen. Etwa ein Drittel davon gehört in die Steinzeit. Die mittelsteinzeitlichen Funde können wahrscheinlich der Rhein-Maas-Schelde-Kultur des älteren Mittelmesolithikums, Phase A, zugeordnet werden (7600–6500 v. Chr.), die jungsteinzeitlichen entstammen dem Jung- bis Spätneolithikum (3800–2800 v. Chr.). Unter den mehr als einhundert Felsgesteingeräten sind viele Schleifwerkzeuge und...

Living at the lakeshore. Early Nubian Complex site associated with a lacustrine environment SFB806 doi

By analysing satellite images of the area around Sodmein Cave numerous well-preserved surface remnants (terraces) could be documented. Surveys on these old terraces, showing mainly a dark desert pavement, yielded preferentially Pleistocene artefact concentrations. Hence, it became clear that these terraces represent parts of the former Pleistocene surface of the area. During surveying activities on such terraces a new archaeological site – preliminary named as “Sodmein Playa” 14/01 – was discovered around 3...
