Oldest sediments from the source region of 'Homo sapiens sapiens'

A 40 m long sediment core from Chew Bahir/southern Ethiopia was already recovered in April 2014 funded exclusively by the CRC 806. Since the core opening the material is processed in the lab facilities of the Institute of Geology and Mineralogy at the University of Cologne.Preliminary results of sedimentological and palaeobiological proxies are already internally discussed and we work currently on a first age model to put the palaeolimnological p...

Coring campaign in Laguna de Medina and Laguna Salada, Cádiz, Southern Spain

From the 5th till the 22th of September, the C3 project went to the province of Cádiz in Spain. The C3 project consists of Tabea Schröder (RWTH Aachen) and Jasmijn van ´t Hoff (University of Cologne), leaded by Prof. Martin Melles. The cluster interfingered with Franz Hartung (F2 (index.php/projects/cluster-f/F2)) and Janna Just (F6 (index.php/projects/cluster-f/F6)), both part of the CRC from the University of Cologne (UoC). We also had help fro...

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...
