Keynote Address:

Sediments and Stratigraphy in Rockshelters and Caves from Spain to the
Near East: Principles and Pragmatics.  

Professor W.R. Farrand
Department of Geological Sciences,
University of Michigan

CALL FOR PAPERS

Much of what we know about the Middle and Upper Palaeolithic is
derived from artefacts and faunal remains excavated from cave and
rockshelter environments in southern Europe and the wider
Mediterranean region. Rockshelter and cave sediment records can
provide both stratigraphic control and environmental context for these
materials. They also constitute a vital linkage between the cultural
record on-site and off-site sources of palaeoenvironmental data. The
study of rockshelter sediment records is now an important part of
Palaeolithic archaeology, Geoarchaeology and Quaternary Science more
generally. Various approaches and methodologies for the scientific
analysis and dating of rockshelter sediments have developed over the
last four decades. This meeting will focus on sites in and around the
Mediterranean region and intends to stimulate debate on the following
themes:

1) The utility of rockshelter and cave sediment sequences as records
of environmental change. 2) Local versus regional controls on
sedimentation style. What can these sequences tell us about local,
regional and global patterns of environmental change? 3) Is it
possible to differentiate between "natural" and anthropogenic
signatures in rockshelter sediment records? Approaches and
methodological issues and the role of  micromorphology. 4) Dating
rockshelter and cave sediment sequences and rates of sedimentation.
Issues of resolution, preservation, gaps in the record etc. 5)
Sediment sources and depositional environments. On-site and off-site
correlations. Rockshelter sediments as an interface (link) between the
archaeological record and the climatic changes recorded in the wider
Pleistocene and Holocene sedimentary record. 6) Comparisons between
rockshelter sediment records and other proxy records of environmental
change (e.g. faunal, pollen and lake level data, alluvial sequences
etc.)

Titles and brief abstracts should be emailed to the convenors as soon
as possible.
