Analysis of Migration Processes due to Environmental Conditions between 40,000 and 14,000 a BP in the Rhine Catchment and Adjacent Areas
The investigation of the Rhineland as the geographic sink of migration movements by modern Homo sapiens will provide new insights on the relationship between environmental change and human behaviour. As part of the investigation, the existing data will be gathered and extended by new data form archaeological and geomorphological fieldwork. Relative and absolute dating methods will allow building up the chronological frame within the time slices under investigation. The results generated within project D1 concerning subsistence strategies, technological adaptations and land use patterns due to environmental conditions will be inserted into large-scale models of population dynamics and mobility.
