Sedimentation changes in a complete Holocene lacustrine record in the Sahara: Varve thickness, seasonality and event layers – Problems of identification, interpretation and chronology. Spatial

Lake Yoa (19.03°N, 20.31°E, 380 m a.s.l.) is a groundwater-fed lake in the hyperarid eastern Sahara halfway between the Tibesti Mountains and the Ennedi plateau. Kröpelin et al. (2008) revealed that the bottom sediments contain a unique archive of climatic and environmental change in the Earth´s major desert. The 7.5 m sediment record of OUNIK03/04 which covers 6,100 years has been extended to a maximum drill depth of 15.7 m during a 2010 coring campaign within the framework of the Collaborative...

Optical dating of sediments in Wadi Sabra (SW Jordan) doi Spatial

At Wadi Sabra (SW Jordan) human occupation dates back to the Palaeolithic and Epipalaeolithic. Although there is stratigraphic correlation based on archaeological finds of Ahmarian origin, numerical age estimates are lacking. We applied single-aliquot optical dating of coarse grained quartz of wadi deposits and investigated the luminescence properties in detail to achieve more accurate age information about the time of human occupation. Weak luminescence signals and scattered dose distributions characterise...

First chronometric dates (TL and OSL) for the Aurignacian open-air site of Româneşti-Dumbrăviţa I, Romania doi Spatial

Currently, absolute dates for the emergence of the Early Upper Paleolithic and the timing of the earliest dispersal of anatomically modern humans (AMH) into Europe are sparse. This is especially true for regions adjoining the Eastern Mediterranean and Central Europe with its dense clusters of sites along the Austrian and German Danube Valley. This article makes a first step toward filling this gap and, for the first time, presents absolute ages for the open-air site of Româneşti-Dumbrăviţa I (Banat, SW...

Etude de la sépulture ibéromaurusienne 1 d’Ifri n’Baroud (Rif oriental, MAROC) / Study of the burial ibéromaurusian 1 of Ifri n’Baroud (Eastern Rif, MOROCCO) Spatial

This article deals with the study of the first burial at the site of Ifri n Baroud (Eastern Rif, Morocco) . It is about an individual primary burial of a tall female adult subject found in a grave. The Iberomaurusian archaeological level to which belongs the burial would be at least 12 500 years old. The grave in question has an oblique bottom. The latter marrowness and the obliqueness of its bottom are evidences that the subject should have been put in a dorsal decubitus position much contracted...

GIS-based catchment analysis for prehistoric sites (Poster) Spatial

One of the main objectives of the Collaborative Research Centre 806 (CRC 806) is to capture the complex nature of chronology, regional structure, climatic, environmental and socio-cultural contexts in Europe during the last 190.000 years, by interdisciplinary research. This poster presents the first results of a collaboration between projects C1 and Z2 of the CRC 806 that aims to use SCA for sites from the Solutrean and Magdalenian on the Iberian Peninsula. Contribution to the overall research of the CRC...

Prospection of karstic caves using GIS and remote-sensing techniques for Geoarchaeological research, NE-Morocco Spatial

Caves and rock shelters are important archives for archaeological research. Prehistoric men not only sheltered in caves but also set up camps in open-air locations. Over the last 15 years a joint research group, comprising INSAP (Institut National des Sciences de l’Archéologie et du Patrimoine du Maroc), KAAK (Kommission für Archäologie Außereuropäischer Kulturen, German Archaeology Institute) and the University of Cologne, has been carrying out surveys and excavations in the area of the Eastern Rif...

Abiotic raw material supply in the Neolithic of the Eastern Rif, Morocco. A preliminary report Spatial

Since 1995 archaeological research has been undertaken in the Eastern Rif (Morocco) by a Moroccan-German research team with participation of the “Institut National des Sciences de l’Archéologie et du Patrimoine du Maroc” (INSAP), the “Kommission für die Archäologie Außereuropäischer Kulturen des Deutschen Archäologischen Instituts” (KAAK), and the Institute of Prehistoric Archaeology of the University of Cologne. In the course of these studies, several hundred sites have been discovered and a number of...

Neolithisation process within the Alboran territory: Models and possible African impact doi Spatial

The Neolithisation of the southern Iberian Peninsula and the Mediterranean Maghreb, here termed “Alboran territory”, must be considered as the same integrative process. By the mid-8th millennium calBP, both sides of the Western Mediterranean were inhabited by hunter-gatherer groups which probably maintained intercontinental contacts. However, from around 7.6 ka calBP, Neolithic groups from the Eastern Mediterranean arrived in the region along the littoral of what is today Andalusia. Neolithic innovations...
