A preliminary model of Upper Pleistocene landscape evolution in the Wadi Sabra (Jordan) based on geoarchaeological investigations. Spatial Temporal

While there is almost no doubt about the African origin of modern humans,1 the path of dispersal and final immigration into Europe is still under debate.2 Our project focuses on the Levant as a potential main corridor for human migrations from Africa to Europe during the Middle and Upper Palaeolithic. It is embedded in the multi-disciplinary CRC 806 “Our Way to Europe,” also investigating other regions including the source areas in North-East Africa, the North-African/Southern-European-Corridor, the...

Multiple environmental change at the time of the Modern Human passage through the Middle East - First results from geoarchaeological investigations on Upper Pleistocene sediments in the Wadi Sabra (Jordan). doi Spatial

Upper Pleistocene sediments at Wadi Sabra (Ma’an District, Jordan) were geoarcheologically investigated from 2008–2010. The Wadi Sabra valley system, situated east of the Dead Sea Rift and south of the ancient Nabataean capital of Petra, has preserved sedimentary deposits which are connected with several Upper Paleolithic sites. First results from sedimentological and geochemical analysis supported by archeological and radiometric dating provide evidence of fluvial and fluvio-eolian sedimentation during...

Facilitating integrated spatio-temporal visualization and analysis of heterogeneous archaelogical and palaeonvironmental research data doi

In the context of the Collaborative Research Centre 806 "Our way to Europe&quot" (CRC806), a research database is developed for integrating data from the disciplines of archaeology, the geosciences and the cultural sciences to facilitate integrated access to heterogeneous data sources. A practice-oriented data integration concept and its implementation is presented in this contribution. The data integration approach is based on the application of Semantic Web Technology and is...

A data integration concept for an interdisciplinary research database

This paper presents an overview of the current state of development of an archaeological and a palaeoenvironmental data model for an interdisciplinary research database. The models are constructed iteratively by integrating heterogeneous data and adjusting the model where necessary. The integration concept is an iterative approach which combines several techniques for data model development, including semantic and syntactic integration and alignment, as well as semantic data linkage with external...
