Report on the field season autumn 2010 in Sodmein Cave (Eastern Desert, Egypt)

Although Sodmein Cave was discovered about 30 years ago by M. Prickett (Prickett 1979), systematic research started during the 1990’s by the Belgian Middle Egypt Prehistoric Project (BMEPP) of the Leuven University (e.g. Moeyersons et al. 2002, Vermeersch 1994, Van Peer et al. 1996). With this archaeological field season in 2010 the research in Sodmein Cave was resumed as a joint project of the universities Leuven and Cologne. After the resolution of some administrative problems with regard to the military...

Towards modelling of loess-paleosol sequence formation.

A simple modelling approach of loess-paleosol sequences combining both local insolation (as represented by a combination of precession and obliquity; p-0.5t) and a global climate signal (represented by the LR04 benthic oxygen isotope stack) is presented. Aim is the combination of these signals and the setting of threshold values to mimic loess-paleosol formation in the Pannonian Basin. As a good fit dies not necessarily imply a causal link, results require critical discussion.

Environmental change indicated by a site-specific grain size ratio - the example of the Semlac loess-paleosol sequence (Romania)

Loess sequences provide important and at least a partial continuous record of Quaternary palaeoenvironmental change. In addition, loess-palaeosol sequences provide valuable information concerning environmental change and climate evolution. It is customary to reconstruct such changes by means of grain sizes ratios. In this study, we calculated an site-specific grain size (GS) ratio (Schulte et al. in review) and compare this ratio with the common U-ratio (Vandenberghe et al.1985) and, in addition, with...

Climatological and environmental change as derived from physical and geochemical loess sediment properties: Examples of last glacial loess sites from the Pannonian Basin doi

The Project B1 within the CRC 806 “Our way to Europe” is focused on the "Eastern Trajectory" of modern human migration from Africa into Europe. The Middle East, Anatolia, Balkans and Southeastern Europe constitute the principal areas to be investigated. Within these larger regions key areas were selected for combined archaeological and geoarchaeological research, fieldwork having delivered case studies for initial Modern Human adaptational systems, yet to be fully...

Environmental Conditions on the corridor of human migration between 40,000 and 14,000 a BP in Balkan region. A multi-proxy approach on loess-paleosol profiles doi

This contribution focuses on two PhD projects, which are integrated within the collaborative research centre 806 “Our way to Europe” at the University of Cologne and the RWTH Aachen University (Germany). The main research focus is the migration of anatomical modern human (AMH) to Europe. We concentrate on the paleoenvironmental conditions on the route through southeastern Europe. This links the region with the earliest fossils of Homo sapiens sapiens (so far known) in the Middle East, Anatolia, the...

Data integration for paleoenvironmental and archaeological GIS based analysis

A spatio-temporal data base integrating paleo environmental and archaeological data is presented in this contribution. The data base is developed applying a collaborative prototyping approach based on Semantic Mediawiki (SMW, Krötzsch et al. 2006) and OGC standards based Spatial Data Infrastructure technology. Time and space are the main integrating factors of the presented data base. The data is spatially integrated by its spatial extent. For GIS datasets this extent is present intrinsically. For data,...
