The Last Glacial Maximum and Heinrich event I on the Iberian Peninsula: A regional climate modelling study for understanding human settlement patterns doi

The spatial distribution and dating of archaeological sites suggest a poor occupation of southern Iberia by hunter-gatherers after the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) and during Heinrich event 1 (H1) compared to Northern Iberia. The H1 was a period of cold and arid climate conditions and is suspected to have played an important role in the population dynamics in Europe at the end of the Pleistocene. In this study, the potential influence of climate change on the human settlement patterns in Iberia is analysed...

The Holocene archaeological sequence and site formation processes at Ifri Oudadane, NE Morocco

The coastal site of Ifri Oudadane is one of the most important sites in the Mediterranean Maghreb. Recent excavations have provided a stratigraphy featuring the transition from Epipalaeolithic hunter-gatherers to Neolithic food producers. This transitional process could be defined by various features. The sedimentological field description revealed a change from homogenous sediment to more structured deposits, and similar to the so-called “fumiers” that are characteristic of animal husbandry in caves and...

Continuity vs. Discontinuity. Epipaleolithic and Early Neolithic in the Mediterranean Southeast of the Iberian Peninsula Spatial

This study deals with the Neolithization process on a regional scale in SE Spain. The narrow chronological and spatial focus on the Epipaleolithic-Early Neolithic transition in Murcia, Almería, Granada and Málaga is a unique characteristic of this study. 10 lithic inventories and vessel units of five pottery assemblages of Epipaleolithic and Early Neolithic origin were recorded systematically in a database that is available in associated with the DOI 10.12853/RESDB.NESPOS.0001. Attribute...

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...

Konsum von Landschnecken im Neolithikum: Neue Daten aus dem östlichen Rif (Marokko)

Landschnecken sind reich an Aminosäuren und Proteinen und stehen in vielen Ländern des Mittelmeerraumes auf dem Speiseplan (ARRÉBOLA BURGOS ÁLVAREZ HALCÓN 2001). Der Verzehr von Schnecken gehörte offenbar schon in prähistorischer Zeit in Nordafrika, Iberien (CAMPS MOREL 1982 LUBELL et al. 1976 LUBELL 2004a, b MOREL 1974) und in der vorderasiatischen Levante (BAR 1977) zur Esskultur. In Nordafrika hinterließen Kulturen des Iberomaurusien (20,000–10,000 BP FEHRENBACH 1985 NAMI 2007) entlang der...
