Human-landscape interactions in Halkidiki (NC Greece) over the last 3.5 millennia

The sediment core from Tristinika coastal marsh in the northern part of Central Greece is the first complete record of vegetation transformation over the last 3.5 millennia. The palynological investigation of the above mentioned core reveals a very strong correlation between vegetation development and human settlement in Halkidiki. Considering the climate variability of this period and the correlation of the pollen data to the extended archaeolog...

Being a Hunter-Gatherer in Namibia – Blurring the Lines

Over the course of his PhD fieldwork, E3 project member Charlie Goodwin has been investigating two communities in the North-Central area of Namibia, both areas of settlement for !Xun and =Akhwe Hai||om people. Hunter-gatherers in Namibia are experiencing a period of rapid transition, many engaged in wagework and farming as well as practising traditionally hunter-gatherer forms of subsistence. The central objective of fieldwork, conducted over the...

La Janda – Coring in September 2016

In September 2016, during a joint drilling campaign of geoscientists from Aachen and Cologne (C-Cluster) and the Spanish Geological Survey (IGME), 170 m of sediment cores have been recovered from the La Janda basin (SW Spain). A commercial drilling team, supervised by Rosa Mediavilla (IGME), could manage to recover the longest sequence (30 m) from this archive ever. This long record has been drilled in a central position at the southern rim of th...

Excavation in Andalucia: Deep inside the cave

Excavation in Andalucia: Deep inside the cave

In C-Cluster, we cannot get enough of caves. This year, our excavation campaign in Ardales Cave (Málaga, Andalucia) was continued. For five weeks, we entered the dark and wet cave that lies on a hill next to the picturesque little village of Ardales with its cute little white houses to search for the smallest traces Palaeolithic men and women could have left there while painting and engraving horses and deers 16,000 to 20,000 years ago. Last year...
