Radiocarbon-dating adhesive and wooden residues from stone tools by Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS): challenges and insights encountered in a case study doi Spatial

In this study we present and assess a process to enhance archaeological residue AMS dating by focusing on contaminant confinement. The sequence of methods applied consists of: 1) optical residue and usewear analyses, 2) experimental designs addressing cleaning treatments to mitigate impact of contaminants, 3) preparation and extraction of residues from (mostly) previously dated stone artefacts, and 4) establishing the elemental characteristics of residues by using SEM/EDX as a final step to avoid sample...

Quaternary climate change and Heinrich events in the southern Balkans: Lake Prespa diatom palaeolimnology from the last interglacial to present doi Spatial

Lake Prespa, in the Balkans, contains an important palaeo-archive in a key location for understanding Quaternary climate variability in the transition between Mediterranean and central European climate zones. Previous palaeoenvironmental research on sediment cores indicates that the lake is highly sensitive to climate change and that diatoms are likely to be strong palaeohydrological proxies. Here, we present new results from diatom analysis of a ca. 91 ka sequence, core Co1215, which spans the time from...

The Central European Magdalenian – Regional diversity and internal variability Spatial

The general objective of this thesis has been to better understand the regional diversity of Central European Magdalenian (CEM) hunter-gatherer groups and thereby to gain a more profound comprehension of Late Upper Palaeolithic interaction networks and of the spatio-temporal processes during the recolonisation of Central Europe after the Last Glacial Maximum. In addition, this study aimed at a comprehensive overview of the current state of knowledge about the CEM and the provision of a detailed compilation...

Paleolimnology of Lake Iznik (NW Turkey) during the past ~ 31 ka cal BP Spatial

Lake Iznik, situated in the Marmara region (NW Turkey), is an alkaline lake with about 300 km2 surface area, inserted in an area of typical Mediterranean climate. During the dry summer season, carbonates are precipitating from the water column. The endogen carbonate accumulation, e.g. aragonite, is expected to hold past climate information. A detailed understanding of the limnological system is required to differentiate site specific signals and responses to climatic forcing. Geochemical and mineralogical...

Late Quaternary landscape evolution in the Wadi Sabra (Jordan) based on sedimentological and geochemical investigations Spatial

This Ph.D.-thesis focuses on the Levant as a potential main corridor of human dispersal from Africa to Europe during the Upper Pleistocene. For the related palaeoenvironmental research in the Eastern Mediterranean region, significant and reliable climate proxies as well as Palaeolithic in-situ sites are scarce. Consequently, the investigation of environmental interactions and migration pathways of ancient human cultures requires advances in the prospection of archaeological sites and associated...

Demographie der Jäger und Sammler im späten Jungpaläolithikum Spatial Temporal

This PhD-thesis investigated the demography of Late Upper Palaeolithic hunter-gatherer populations, when Europe was repopulated after the Last Glacial Maximum. The study deals with estimations of regional differentiated population densities and associated settlement patterns. A method based on GIS techniques is used to upscale archaeological data from key sites and regions to culturally homogenous contextual areas in Europe. Based on the spatial density of Late Upper Palaeolithic sites, GIS-calculated...

Nutrient status in prehistoric agricultural soils – indications from geochemical analyses of archaeological topsoil relicts Spatial

At the beginning of agriculture in Central Europe during the Neolithic (at about 5,500 BC) first farmers started to utilise the fertile loess areas. However, archaeologists have shown that the location shifted between settlement areas and, therefore, also between agricultural fields. Besides cultural and other environmental variables, it has been assumed that decreasing soil fertility was one key factor leading to human mobility. To test this hypothesis, the soil nutrient status and organic matter origin in...

Technological and Typological Change at the Middle to Upper Palaeolithic Boundary in Lebanon Spatial

The dissertation is based on the study of lithics in order to explore cultural-historic connections across the Middle to Upper Palaeolithic boundary in Lebanon between 50-35,000 years ago on one hand, and between different regions in the Levant on the other. Besides the study of some 10 assemblages from Lebanon, additional data was acquired through published literature. For the first time, it could be testified that so called transitional industries in Lebanon are not connected to the preceding Middle...
