Late Glacial and Earliest Postglacial Database Project

PD Dr. Berit V. Eriksen, Dr. Sonja Grimm, Dr. Mara-Julia Weber

This project seeks to establish a reliable and searchable GIS database encompassing all data relevant to the archaeology and paleo-ecology of the Late Glacial and Earliest Postglacial. This database will facilitate the organization of future large-scale projects. Initial focus will be on the archives of archaeological sites in Schleswig-Holstein maintained by Ingo Clausen and the Archaeological State Agency Schleswig-Holstein, combining spatial and artifact data to allow researchers to investigate sites based on all known previous collection and fieldwork activities. Following this initial phase, the database will be expanded thematically to include information about the past environment with respect to topography, geology, hydrology, climate, flora, and fauna through close collaboration with colleagues working in archaeozoology, palynology, palaeobotany and geology. Finally, the database will be expanded chronologically and geographically to include information for several phases of the stone age for Northwest Europe.
