DFG-project "Der Beginn von Nahrungsmittelproduktion im semiariden Nordosten Brasiliens am Beispiel der Serra da Capivara, Piaui" (LI-1698/2-1)

South America is deemed to be the home of several domesticated plants such as pepper, pumpkin, maize, potatoes, manioc and sweet potatoes. Exact place and time of its domestication as well as distribution across the continent are subject of recent research. Animal domestication takes place at a later date, and includes only a few species such as camelids and guinea pigs. Therefore we assume that South America during the bigger part of the Holocene was occupied by foragers who step by step cultivated different crops. Different habitats and climatic conditions resulted in a variety of complex subsistence strategies. The Serra da Capivara in NE-Brazil is characterised by extraordinary archaeological sites frequently associated with rock art, which are recognised by the UNESCO as world heritage. Thanks to long term archaeological research done by researchers of the Universities of the Fundação Museu do Homem Americano, Sao Raimundo Nonato, Universidade Federal de Pernambuco and Universidade Federal do Vale do São Francisco under the direction of Prof. Niede Guidon. With the help of systematic sampling and excavations, including flotation, now the first appearance of domesticated plants and their role within the subsistence models of prehistoric groups will be studied.

DFG-project "Assessing the recent subsidence of the central coastal Delta of Bangladesh by dating submerged kilns" (HA 4317/5?1)

The delta of the Ganges?Brahmaputra slowly subsides by subduction?related tectonic subsidence (about 1 mm/a) and more rapidly due to compaction of the up to 60 m?thick Holocene muds (estimated as 1? 4 mm/a). Two submerged kiln sites, 35 km apart from each other, with four to six box?shaped kiln  constructions are exposed by erosion at the current coast of the delta and are accessible during ebb tides. Their present exact position below sea level will be measured and the timing of submergence will be determined by luminescence dating of the kiln brick walls. The results are used to determine the continuous or stepwise subsidence of the coast. Few pilot data suggest the deepest eastern kiln (about 2 m below high tide) has been flooded 250 years ago (pottery dated by thermoluminescence) and, thus, the sites will yield information, which is of direct relevance for the modern delta. Furthermore, the kiln which were either used for pottery or for salt production will be sampled, documented and archived before their complete submergence or destruction by tropical cyclones.

DFG-project CRC 806 “Our way to Europe” C2 “Early Holocene contacts between Africa and Europe and their Palaeoenvironmental Context”

The early Holocene of the Western Mediterranean is a period of dramatic cultural change. New patterns of subsistence emerge at the transition from the Epipalaeolithic to the Neolithic. The project focuses on the development of food-producing groups on both sides of the Mediterranean, their intercontinental connections, adaptation to different habitats as well as the effect of climate and environmental change on prehistoric land use.

In the Western Mediterranean, Epipalaeolithic groups played an important role in the transitional process. They are an element of continuity in our research area. Different models explain how these indigenous groups adopted technological innovations from Neolithic pioneers. Latter groups represent an element of discontinuity and are probably the source for most of the recorded cultural innovations. The appearance of different ceramic styles and subsistence strategies is the result of ethnic diversity and adaptations to different environments. The distribution of cardium (Franco-Iberian style) and noncardium impressed pottery excludes each other in the South of the Iberian Peninsula as well as in Northwest-Africa. A comparison of pottery distribution to bioclimatic zones displays a patterning of Cardial ceramics connected to subhumid and non-Cardial ceramics connected to semiarid conditions. Recent investigations in semiarid Morocco indicate that contacts within these bioclimatic zones were closer, even via the Mediterranean Sea, than to neighbouring areas of a different environmental setting. The patterning of these transcontinental networks seems crucial to us for the understanding of the neolithisation process in the Western Mediterranean as a whole. These new results cast a new light, and thus attention, on the African influences upon Southwest Europe.

At the same time, radiocarbon data of archaeological sites from Morocco show significant correlation with climate events like Bölling, Alleröd and Younger Dryas and the onset of the Holocene. The same is true to shifts in humidity, indicated by the variation of Saharan dust in Atlantic marine records. Oscillation of radiocarbon data may indicate fluctuations of human occupation. The project intends to analyse the pattern behind this process using archaeological data in combination with environmental data from archaeological sites, terrestrial archives (fluvial, limnic) and marine records. Furthermore, investigations of terrestrial archives will test the distribution of semiarid and subhumid zones at the time of Epipalaeolithic-Neolithic-transition.

VW Foundation-project "Spätquartärer Landschafts- und Nutzungswandel im semiariden Nordosten Marokkos – eine geoarchäologische Rekonstruktion" (Changes in landscape and land-use in the semiarid NE-Morocco during the Late Quaternary)

The reconstruction of prehistoric human-environment-relations requires archaeological and geo-scientific expertise. Geological archives document landscape changes, but seldom show the underlying causes (whether human or environmental) for these changes, so that corresponding causal factors often remain speculative. Archaeological archives supply the data necessary to understand development of human communities, but clear indicators of causal mechanisms (human or environmental) are notoriously difficult to detect. In our geoarchaeological case studies we address such questions by interdisciplinary field-work.

The project aims at reconstructing and contrasting land-use and landscape-change between 11ka calBP (beginning of the Epipalaeolithic culture) and present times in the morphodynamically sensitive regions of Northeast-Morocco. The alluvial sediments of the Lower Moulouya have a key function in our studies. The stratigraphic linkage of geomorphological archives and buried (well-preserved) archaeological open-air sites allows a precise chronological linking of changes in settlement and subsistence pattern with variations of regional environmental parameters.

On the base of sedimentological, soil genetical, and chronometrical records a high resolution chronostratigraphy of the stratified high-flood sediments of the Lower Moulouya in NE-Morocco will be established. The 15m deep exposed Moulouya river sediments provide excellent conditions for the development of chronostratigraphic sequences. The high-flood sediments document both variations of the fluvial dynamics and supply direct environmental data for reconstruction of the Late Quaternary landscape development.

Thanks to the cañon-like erosion, the buried open-air sites in the Moulouya river sediments are well exposed. The archaeological recording of the material culture, as well as flora and fauna, allows a detailed reconstruction of prehistoric land-use patterns during the last 11ka. The stratigraphic connection of the archaeological data with the alluvial archives will give us ample opportunities for the envisaged reconstruction of prehistoric man-environment-relations.

DAI/KAAK-INSAP project "The Coastal Neolithic of Northern Morocco" Surveys and excavations of caves and open air sites in NE-Morocco

Surveys and excavations at the east Moroccan Mediterranean coast line trace back to a “demarginalisation project” of the Moroccan government. The steep and rocky coasts of the region were for long time one of the most inaccessible areas of the country. Towns like Al Hoceima were approachable just by dead-end streets crossing the Rif-Mountains from the South. The new coastal road, called “Rocade” now connects the Peninsula of Melilla with Al Hoceima and the Tangier-Peninsula on a direct way.

Several archaeological sites were touched by the road works (e.g. Ifri Ouzabour, Ifri Armas, Ifri Oudadane). The workings of the KAAK-INSAP mission in cooperation with the University of Cologne were concentrated on the area west of the estuary mouth of the Oued Kert about 40 km west of the towns of Melilla and Nador. The preservation state of the sites found during survey activities in 2005 by Josef Eiwanger (KAAK, Bonn) and Abdesalam Mikdad (INSAP, Rabat) is very variable.

Landscape and prehistoric land use in the Gilf Kebir (Southwest Egypt)

The Gilf Kebir Plateau is situated in the far Southwest of Egypt, to the South of the Great Sand Sea and about 650 km to the west of the Nile valley. Although nowadays part of one of the earth’s most arid deserts, the valleys of the Gilf Kebir offered favourable conditions for prehistoric settlement during the so-called “Neolithic wet phase” from the middle of the 7th to the middle of the 4th millennium BC.

Human occupation was favoured by the fact that wadis were blocked by north-south trending dunes which resulted in the formation of temporary lakes (playas) upvalley. Since the early eighties numerous sites in the vicinity of the playa and the barrier dune in the Wadi Bakht were excavated. They were dated in the Middle Neolithic (6500-4350 calBC) and the Late Neolithic (4350-3500 calBC).

Since the Middle and the Late Neolithic are clearly distinguished by their material culture, one of the research subjects is to find out whether the various lithic inventories can be related to different mode of production in regard t different strategies of land use.
