CRC 806 at the research day of the Neanderthal Museum: presenting our science to the public

During this year’s „Day of Research“ (November 19th, 2017) in the Neanderthal Museum at Mettmann, scientists of the A- and C-Cluster presented insights into their current archaeological, geoscientific and geoarchaeological research to the wider public. Such occasions are unique for visitors and researcher alike; presenting research face-to-face with the public is challenging but also valuable. The question of human mobility was topic of the infor...

International Conference on the Solturean

International Conference on the Solturean

The Solutrean, a cultural phase of the Last Glacial Maximum in Europe, constitutes a focus of interdisciplinary research within several projects of the CRC 806. For example, impacts of the decisive climatic changes are modelled (project E6), demographic densities and dynamics estimated (project E1) and human cultural and economic responses to local and regional conditions investigated (project C1). The outstanding western European archaeological...

Pollen grains reveal the paleovegetation of the southern Levant

The southern Levant experienced strong environmental changes since the last glacial period. Enormous lake-level high stands characterized the landscape about 25,000 years ago. However, we do not know how the vegetation looked like. Did increased rainfalls lead to a spread of Mediterranean woodland as hypothesized before? An international team with members of the B3 project of the CRC 806 dedicated themselves to this question. By looking at fossil...

Prehistoric rock art and mobile art conference in Santander

Last year, Viviane Bolin attended the fifth ASP Conference (Art des Sociétées Préhistoriques) at the University of Santander (Cantabria, Spain) from 8th to 12th November 2016. Since 2008, this conference brings together PhD and postdoctoral students from different countries who conduct research in Palaeolithic and Post-Palaeolithic Art, especially in Spain and France. Viviane Bolin presented the results of different GIS-based spatial analyses tha...

CRC 806 at DFG’s “Research in Germany” Booth / AGU Fall Meeting 2016, San Francisco

With about 25,000 participants, the annual convention of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) in San Francisco is the world’s largest geoscientific conference. Once again, the DFG’s “Research in Germany” initiative was present at the accompanying exhibition with a prominent and generously sized booth, only second to NASA and Google, from 11–15/12/2016. It was shared by three German clusters of excellence – CliSAP, MARUM and The Future Ocean; two...

CliMathNet and PEN

CliMathNet and PEN

The network CliMathNet is a collaboration of climate scientists, mathematicians and statisticians aiming to answer related questions to climate modeling, e.g. dealing with uncertainties in predictions and observations. Closely connected to CliMathNet is PEN (Past Earth Network), whose goal is to improve future climate predictions by studying past climate. Therefore, PEN looks at the uncertainty quantification of models and observations, data-mode...

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...
