10th Central European Diatom Meeting in Budapest

10th Central European Diatom Meeting in Budapest

Around 70 scientists with interest in diatom research from all over Europe, the United States and Mexico came together to present and discuss their results related to diatoms in talks and posters during the 10th Central European Diatom Meeting held in beautiful Budapest, Hungary. The meeting was hosted by the Research Centre for Natural Sciences of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Hannah Vossel from the Project B3 was presenting final results o...

The estimation of geochemical provenance areas for the early Upper Palaeolithic of the Banat (SW-Romania)

Far too often does country- or language-specific nomenclature impede the estimation of the past lithic raw material economy. Sadly, the early Upper Palaeolithic raw material record of the open-air localities of the Banat in Southwest Romania is no exception. It is dominated by a rock in literature referred to as Silexul de tip bănăţean. Silexul means “[...] a wide range of hard rocks with sharp edges, from which Palaeolithic tools are forged” (F....

International Science Meeting “Inside – Outside” in Cologne

The scientific challenge of integrating cave and open-air archives was the subject of the International Science Meeting “Inside – Outside” held from 6th to 9th of April 2016 (organized by the projects A1, B1 and C1). The Collaborative Research Centre 806 “Our Way to Europe” welcomed about 90 scientists from 10 countries at the University of Cologne. A main objective was to bring experts from different fields of research (i.e. geology, geography,...

Trips to South and East Europe

Trips to South and East Europe

From November 24th to December 2nd in 2015, part of the C1-team carried out a second campaign in the Palaeolithic cave Ardales in Malaga (Spain). The objective for this short campaign was to document a very well preserved cave profile in another part of the cave and, hopefully, find conclusive material for the chronology of archaeological layers. End of this March, the conference of the Hugo Obermaier Society took place at the Eötvös Loránd Unive...

Visiting Radiation Physics Experts at the TU Dresden

From early February to late March, Franz Hartung, PhD student in Project F2 of the CRC 806, had a research stay at the TU Dresden. In the lovely atmosphere of the baroque city he benefited from the expert knowledge of the Radiation Physics Group led by PD Dr. Jürgen Henniger, and learned how to use radiation transport simulation programmes. They can support to constrain the impact of environmental radiation processes to Beryllium Oxide dosimeters...

Back from another mission in the Tibesti (Central Sahara)

A2 members just returned from another equally demanding as rewarding four-week expedition in the Tibesti mountains. The team comprised Quaternary geologist Stefan Kröpelin, archaeologist Jan Kuper, botanist Frank Darius, volcanologist Clive Oppenheimer (U Cambridge, UK), documentary filmmaker Srdan Keca (U Stanford, Palo Alto) and seven Chadians. Once more, the mission was fully supported by Baba Mallaye, president of the World Heritage Technical...

Dr. Mohamed Youssef – A guest researcher from Egypt helps in deciphering palaeohydrology

As part of the ongoing research in the Egyptian Eastern Desert, Project A1 has welcomed Dr. Mohamed Youssef for a two-month guest research stay in November and December 2015. Dr. Youssef is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Desert Research Centre in Egypt, with specific focus on hydrogeology and water resources.The palaeohydrology of the Eastern Desert is crucial for the understanding of human behaviour, especially in the area of Gebel Duwi, where...

CRC 806 at AGU Fall Meeting 2015

During the 48th AGU (American Geophysical Union) Fall Meeting, the major Earth and space science meeting in the world held in San Francisco 14–18 December 2015 with nearly 24,000 participants, we presented our CRC 806 at the DFG stand during one day with flyers, a presentation and a clip on the Tibesti fieldwork. Much attractive were our gimmicks: compasses and key chains with CRC 806 “Our Way to Europe” engravings. We had interesting discussions...
