Settlement Patterns and Climate Change in the Late Pleistocene of the Western Mediterranean – A Synthesis
The present state of research argues for the earliest immigration of Iberia by modern humans not from Africa via the Strait of Gibraltar, but from central Europe. Thus, Iberia appears as a late refugium for Neanderthals. The project will test cultural patterning of late Neanderthals and modern humans in their environmental setting based on new stratigraphical data. Background for the study is the outstanding archaeological record of this period of the Iberian Peninsula. The Iberian situation will be compared to the evidence from North Africa as well as from the northern foothills of the Pyrenees.
