The poster present an enlarged approach of scales for geoarchaeology-archaeogeomorphology, based on different sizes of relief forms, as (semi-) quantitative differentiation of various scales. With this classification, small-scale features related to “on-site” investigations can be integrated to the existing considerations of scale in geoarchaeology, but are expanded by characteristics of the landscape beyond the influence of a site.
We apply this concept to the Eastern Desert of Egypt, as it is a key region in the understanding of the migration of AMH from Africa to Europe and simultaneously serves as an example of a today´s hyper arid environment.
