Höhlenlager des Gravettien - Muster jungpaläo­lithischer Höhlennutzung am Beispiel des Gravettien Nordspaniens

Für die Erforschung der Altsteinzeit bieten Höhlen aufgrund ihrer räumlichen Fokussierung menschlicher Aktivitäten optimale Möglichkeiten und bilden deshalb in vielen Untersuchungsgebieten die wichtigste Fundplatzgattung. Mit der vorliegenden Publikation wurde der Versuch unternommen, unterschiedliche Aspekte menschlicher Aufenthalte anhand konkreter Fallbeispiele herauszuarbeiten und sinnstiftend miteinander in Beziehung zu setzen. Hierbei steht zeitlich der Kulturkomplex des Gravettien und räumlich...

Holocene environmental change in NE Morocco: Archaeological and Palaeobotanical evidences from Ifri Oudadane doi

The littoral site of Ifri Oudadane is one of the most important recently excavated sites in the Mediterranean Maghreb. The shelter presents Epipalaeolithic and Neolithic layers and therefore offers the possibility to investigate the Neolithic transition in the region. Besides introducing the archaeological context, this paper focuses on palaeobotanical data in order to reconstruct Holocene environmental change and human use of plant resources for the period c. 11 to 5.7 ka cal. BP. Results show intense...

Upper Paleolithic of Middle Dniester: Doroshivtsi III site Spatial

As a result of excavations of the Doroshivtsi III open-air site in the Middle Dniester region, seven Upper Paleolithic cultural levels were discovered in the 12 m thick loess profile. With the exception of level 1 with very few artifacts, all other cultural levels could be determined as Gravettian. The richest collections belong to level 3 and 6. Level 6 is dated to 22,330 ± 100 BP, and represents an original UP industry with shouldered points, a small amount of burins, and numerous backed tools made mainly...

Culture-environment interaction and human mobility in the Late Quaternary: The Western Mediterranean – Bridge or barrier?


Sima de las Palomas de Teba (Málaga). Resultados de las investigaciones 2011-2014.

La Sima de las Palomas de Teba es uno de los cuatro yacimientos prehistóricos pertenecientes al mismo complejo kárstico situado en el Tajo del Molino de Teba (Málaga), conocidos por la investigación desde finales de los años setenta del siglo pasado. Las características morfológicas de esta pequeña sima, de poco más de siete metros de profundidad, han permitido acceder a una estratigrafía paleolítica con numerosos hallazgos que demuestran ocupaciones neandertales en su interior. Las campañas...

Cueva de Ardales. Intervenciones Arqueológicas 2011-2014.

La Cueva de Ardales es un conocido yacimiento prehistórico malagueño que fue incluido por el Consejo de Europa en el Itinerario Cultural “Caminos del Arte Rupestre”. Sus manifestaciones artísticas paleolíticas son, a todas luces, de gran importancia para entender el inicio de la cultura gráfica europea. De la misma forma, el hecho de que en su interior se depositasen numerosos restos humanos, convirtiendo la gran cueva en un lugar funerario, nos han permitido conocer, a través de la antropología de...

Late Neanderthals at Jarama VI (Central Iberia)? doi

Previous geochronological and archaeological studies on the rock shelter Jarama VI suggested a late survival of Neanderthals in central Iberia and the presence of lithic assemblages of Early Upper Paleolithic affinity. New data on granulometry, mineralogical composition, geochemical fingerprints and micromorphology of the sequence corroborate the previous notion that the archaeological units JVI.2.1 to JVI.2.3 are slackwater deposits of superfloods, which did not experience significant post-depositional...

Sediment sequence and site formation processes at the Arbreda Cave, NE Iberian Peninsula, and implications on human occupation and climate change during the Last Glacial doi

The Arbreda Cave provides a detailed archaeological record of the Middle to Upper Palaeolithic and is a key site for studying human occupation and cultural transitions in NE Iberia. Recently, studies of lake archives and archaeological sites presented new evidence on climate changes in NE Iberia correlating with Heinrich events. It, therefore, needs to be determined whether climate signals can be identified in the cave sequence of Arbreda, and if so, whether these signals can be correlated with...
