Geomorphological investigations at Mochena Borago rock shelter, Ethiopia

During the last decade archaeological analyses helped to gain insight into the history of settlement of the rock shelter in the last 50 ka. Element and micromorphological analyses as well as computer-supported large scale investigations for sediment sources and transport into the rock shelter itself were carried out to understand the depositional history of Mochena Borago. The arrangement of excavation sites gives a rough overview of the stratigr...

Six weeks looking for dust in Hungary, Serbia and Romania

This spring from 5th April – 17th May geoscientists from the RWTH Aachen University and archaeologists from the University of Cologne, both of the CRC 806 B1 project, undertook fieldwork in Hungary, Serbia and Romania. Geoscientific efforts mainly focused on exploration and sampling of loess-palaeosol deposits. The first part of the trip was spent in Hungary in the area around Miskolc and Tokaj, before the trip continued to Vrsac in Serbia. Whil...

Last excavation campaign at the Epipalaeolithic–Neolithic site of Ifri n’Etsedda, Morocco

Between February and April 2014, the archaeological team of the C2 project carried out the third and last excavation campaign at the archaeological site of Ifri n'Etsedda (Ouled Daoud, Morocco).The spring campaign was mainly oriented at the achievement of the burial, which was partially excavated in the Epipalaeolithic layers already during the latter stages of the 2013 field season. The excavation was then organized in such a way to extensively ...

BeO-dosimeters successfully estimate the heterogeneity of the dose rate distribution

As shown in previous investigations within the CRC 806, the BeOmax dosimetry system is able to measure in situ dose rates with low uncertainties in sediment contexts. These small dosimeters are used in a dosimeter study, which is a part of the Ph. D. thesis of Franz Hartung. The aim of this research is to estimate the order of magnitude of spatially heterogeneously distributed dose rates. The research design consists of a raster of 64 dosimeters...

Between trash and trove.  Archaeological research in northeast Serbia

This spring the archaeologists of the University of Cologne and geoscientist from the RWTH Aachen University of the CRC 806 B1 project travelled to the town of Vršac in Northeastern Serbia. The aim was to relocate and examine previously known early Upper Palaeolithic (UP) open-air sites. During sand mining activities in the 1970s, workers found Aurignacian stone artefacts and local scholars documented the majority of these findings. Yet, despite...

Micromorphology at Sodmein Cave – looking at the lowest level of site formation processes

First micromorphological investigations at Sodmein Cave were started and four pilot thin sections from the sequence are in process. Sodmein is located in the Eastern Desert of Egypt and contains artefacts dating from the Middle Palaeolithic to the Neolithic. It will expand the previous first sedimentological analysis of the stratigraphy and will deliver more insights into the formation processes of this important site.

Settlement dynamics at the edge of the Pleistocene in the Near East: Revisiting the site of Taybeh, southern Jordan

During this year's short field campaign, one day was dedicated to revisiting the site of Taybeh 3 near the small village of Taybet Zaman in the greater Petra region. The site was excavated in 2010 and underwent extensive analysis in a recently completed master thesis at the University of Cologne, describing the lithic material and the technological organisation of the unearthed assemblage in detail. Our short visit aimed at evaluating the site's...

Geo-archaeological research on the Late Pleistocene of the Egyptian Eastern Desert: recent threats to the Sodmein Cave

The amount of stratigraphic and secure dating evidence from Late Pleistocene archaeological sites of north-eastern Africa is limited and well-dated Middle Stone Age (MSA) sites remain a desideratum. One of the rare sites in this time range is the Sodmein Cave in Egypt.

Oase Rock-Shelter (Romania): First evidence for human occupation during the Pleistocene

In its second year of archaeological research around the Oase Cave complex (Caraş-Severin, Romania), the German-Romanian excavation team at last discovered traces of human occupation during the Late Pleistocene. Currently, two sites are under excavation: Hoţu Cave, a small cavity which yields evidence for human presence in the Epipalaeolithic and later periods, and a large rock-shelter in the vicinity of Oase Cave. Fossils detected inside this c...
