Speleothems – further terrestrial records of climate variability in the Western Mediterranean

In order to reconstruct palaeoclimate in the Western Mediterranean, the variety of terrestrial archives investigated by the C-Cluster will be extended by speleothems. In collaboration with the working group of Prof. Dr. Denis Scholz (Johannes-Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany) these sensitive recorders will be analysed. Further data including precipitation, temperature and vegetation changes will be correlated with other off-site and on-site ar...

Drilling campaign in the Mohoş peat bog in the Eastern Romanian Carpathians

In June/July 2014, our team (Maria Papadopoulou, Marc Bormann, Daniel Veres, Enikö Magyari and Frank Schäbitz) retrieved several metres of glacial sediments from two drilling locations within the Mohoş peat bog with the help of Richard Niederreiter and his equipment. Additionally, the Holocene bog sediments were recovered using a Russian Corer. In order to bring the coring machinery and the platform to the coring site, our team, with the help of...

Excursion to Tablas de Daimiel National Park in March 2014 (Ciudad Real, Central Spain) with our new collaboration partners in C3

An initial meeting in Madrid was undertaken in February 2014, where Jasmijn and Tabea got an introductory course in Spanish, and Tabea an additional one on Quaternary pollen by our colleague Jose Antonio López Saez of the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) in Madrid. In spring 2014, we then joined for a field reconnaissance trip to the wetlands of Tablas de Daimiel (coordinates of the Tablas de Daimiel National Park: 39° 7′ 47...

Vegetation mapping and sampling of moss polsters and soils in the Mohoş region, Romania

In June 2014, a group of environmental- and geoscientists of the CRC 806 at the University of Cologne completed successfully the first phase of the fieldwork in the central eastern Carpathians (Romania). In order to examine the pollen–vegetation relationship in the study area, 18 moss samples from different vegetation patches within the Mohoş crater as well as in its surroundings were recovered. Additionally, the vegetation was mapped in detail ...

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...
