The latest paper from the project, “Loess accumulation during the last glacial maximum: Evidence from Urluia, southeastern Romania”, is now in press in Quaternary International, and can be found here: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.quaint.2013.08.005. The paper shows that between 6-8 m (!!) of loess were deposited during the LGM in the Lower Danube steppe.


Our latest paper, published recently in PLoS One, shows new ash data from Romania, which suggest that the CI-eruption and its possible effect on human populations 40 kyrs ago in the region might have been grossly underestimated: http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0065839.

New paper on the survey project 2010-2012 out: Iovita, R., A. Dobos, K. E. Fitzsimmons, M. Probst, U. Hambach, M. Robu, M. Vlaicu, and A. Petculescu, (2013) “Geoarchaeological prospection in the loess steppe: preliminary results from the Lower Danube Survey for Paleolithic Sites (LoDanS)”. Quaternary International doi:10.1016/j.quaint.2013.05.018. Link

Our first paper on the late Middle Pleistocene site of Dealul Guran was published today in Antiquity. Link: http://antiquity.ac.uk/ant/086/ant0860973.htm

We’re currently taking volunteers for the 2012 Season.

Our project is the monthly featured field project of the Louis J. Kolb Society at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology! See more details here.

Teilnehmer bitte eure Emails lesen! Ich habe am 30. März allen Teilnehmern eine Beschreibung des Projekts und der Aufgaben, sowie der Lebensbedingungen per Email geschickt. Ab dem 15. April wird die Kommunikation schwieriger sein, und deswegen sollten sich alle Teilnehmer bei mir (iovita (at) rgzm (punkt) de) melden, die es nicht schon bisher getan haben.
