“Reconstructions of paleo-environmental changes and human activity in the Lone and Ammer Valley of the past 50,000 years”

Southwestern Germany hosts a number of cave and a few open air sites, which have been repeatedly occupied by groups of hominins since at least the last interglacial. The current understanding, however, of the relationship between human occupation and landscape evolution in southwestern Germany relies on data coming almost exclusively from cave sites and rock shelters. Paleo- environmental data, in particular paleo-vegetation, paleo-lake shores and hydro-balance studies useful for paleoclimate reconstruction are not available for such an archaeologically well-known region whose models of hominin occupation, depopulation, extinction and the emergence of new cultures rely mostly on paleo-climatic assumptions. New drill cores close to excavation sites now provide the highly necessary paleo-environmental frame work to help evaluating the relationship between climate and human occupation, depopulation and resettlements since the last 50,000 years.
