Nutritional potential of Lateglacial Landscapes

Sascha Krüger M.A.

In my research I aim for a better understanding of resource supply and exploitation strategies during the Lateglacial in the area of modern Schleswig-Holstein. Therefore, I will use different analytical methods (pollen analysis, loss on ignition, macrofossils, micro-charcoal analysis, GIS). An essential prerequisite for this research are reliable and preferably high-resolute archives. Geological surveys in the area of a former meltwater lake in Schleswig-Holstein (Germany) yielded undisturbed Lateglacial sediments near Palaeolithic hunting sites (Hamburgian and Ahrensburgian). Preliminary palynological investigations of these lake deposits by Hartmut Usinger († 2015) confirmed the existence of sediments reflecting the transition from Allerød to Younger Dryas. Furthermore, a laminated sequence could be identified in the lake stratigraphy that is the so far only known annually layered Lateglacial sequence in Schleswig-Holstein.


These deposits in combination with the archaeological record make possible detailed multidisciplinary analyses and an evaluation of Lateglacial human-environment-interactions. In the frame of the CRC 1266 “Scales of Transformation”, the evaluation and some of these analyses are performed as part of a PhD project.
