The Ennedi Massif: Natural and cultural landscape – Chad’s second World Heritage site

18 years after an initiative taken by Stefan Kröpelin in 1999, UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee has unanimously inscribed the Ennedi plateau in the northeast of Chad as one of the rare mixed natural and cultural sites at its 40th session in Istanbul. The sandstone plateau in the size of Switzerland has been called the “Garden Eden of the Sahara”. It has been sculpted by water and wind erosion into a spectacular landscape featuring canyons, cliff...

B2 Project and European Pollen Database (EPD) Meeting in Aix en Provence, France

Around 200 scientists with main interest in pollen analysis from all over Europe came together in the June of 2016 in Aix en Provence, France. Their aim was to present and discuss their results related to modern and fossil pollen assemblages, through an extended poster session, during the EPD Meeting. In this meeting, Maria Papadopoulou, a member of the B2 Project of CRC 806, had the chance to present her first results on the vegetation history o...

Science Night (Wissenschaftsnacht) 2016 in Bonn

The 10th science night in Bonn attracted people of all ages with this year’s motto “WaterWorlds”. About 18,000 visitors came to see various presentations and events until midnight. One highlight was certainly the geo show: Scientists – also from CRC 806 – explained how rocks and sediments enable them to look into the past. The audience enjoyed a live connection to one of the largest drilling core repositories worldwide, an interactive quiz, and a...

Interlinking the cultural with the natural environment – an example from the Djebel Duwi area (Eastern Desert, Egypt)

Developments in landscape studies in the past decades have allowed scholars to successfully bridge the cultural and natural sciences and to also better understand how humans and the environment are interlinked. For the prehistory of Egypt’s Eastern Desert such links are relatively unexplored, due to the low density of archaeological sites and the limited knowledge of the environmental evolution. A. Saadallah has attempted to rectify this deficien...

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...
