Middle to Upper Palaeolithic Transition at Cuevas de Los Casares?

The last week of September 2014, three members of the C1-Project flew to Madrid to support a Spanish team of archaeologists in Los Casares Cave. The cavity lies in the Alto Tajo Natural Park, in Guadalajara Province, ca. 1.5 hours away from Madrid and is well-known throughout the country, not only for its beautiful Upper Palaeolithic engravings of horses, deers and anthropomorphic figures, but also because it contains one of the scarce evidences ...

International Luminescence and Electron Spin Resonance Dating conference (LED 2014)

During the second week of July, the Cologne Luminescence Laboratory (CLL) head sent personnel to Montreal to participate in the 14th International Luminescence and Electron Spin Resonance Dating conference (LED 2014 (http://www.led2014.uqam.ca/)). Six posters were presented including three of the CRC 806 context. Melanie Bartz presented her work on "Luminescence dating of fluvial sediments – Landscape dynamics around the Palaeolithic site If...

Fieldworks in Abrigo del Molino (Segovia, Central Spain)

Abrigo del Molino is a new Mousterian site in Central Spain discovered in 2012 in the frame of the research project "Primeros Pobladores de Segovia" (First settlers of Segovia) conducted by David Álvarez-Alonso, María de Andrés-Herrero, Andrés Díez-Herrero and Julio Rojo since 2012. The interior of the Iberian Peninsula was occupied by Neanderthals as documented by several well-known Mousterian sites including Ermita, Valdegoba, Prado V...

My dear Paleosol

My dear Paleosol

On 18th June 2014, three brave PhD students from the RWTH Aachen University, part of the CRC 806 B1 and D1 projects, left Aachen for five days. Their destination: Wurzburg, Bavaria, or to be political correct, Franconia. Their goal: explore the secrets of paleosols. Their method: the International Course on Paleosols and Paleoenvironment hold by Alexander Makeev (Moscow State University), Birgit Terhorst (University of Wurzburg), Elizabeth Sollei...

Where the witches are, there is also loess!

Where the witches are, there is also loess!

Just to let you know ahead, we haven't seen one, I think. No yeah, I am positive, no witches passed our way. The reason why I started talking about witches? Wait, I'll explain. Right in the centre of Germany is a fault-block mountain range, the Harz, which separates the flat northern Germany from the hills further south. Due to tectonic processes the northern part of the so-called horst was strongly uplifted compared to the south, which can be ob...

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 ...
