Advanced computer modelling of hominin dispersal from Africa: integrating archaeological and palaeoclimatic simulations

Type: Scientific datasets Publisher: Archaeology Data Service

The project aim was to develop process-based computer simulations of the dispersal of Homo erectus out of Africa. This involved developing realistic constraints on the patterns of vegetation and the effects of changes in global sea level. It was assumed that this migration out of Africa...

This High resolution sonar for the archaeological investigation of marine aggregate deposits project was undertaken by the University of Southampton and funded through the English Heritage disbursed Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund. The project investigated the potential of state-of-the...

A Re-examination of Sheep Bone Density and its Role in Assessing Taphonomic Histories of Zooarchaeological Assemblages: PhD Thesis, University College London (2002)

Type: Scientific datasets Publisher: Archaeology Data Service

A PhD Thesis submitted to University College London. Destructive taphonomic processes can preferentially remove certain bones from the archaeological record thereby introducing bias into element frequencies. Bone density is the major factor in destructive taphonomic processes hence a kno...

Soil erosion, agricultural terracing and site formation processes at Markiani, Amorgos, Greece

Type: Scientific datasets Publisher: Archaeology Data Service

Soil erosion, agricultural terracing and site formation is an archive resulting from the analyses undertaken on soils and sediments from a terraced slope at an Early Bronze Age site on the Aegean island of Amorgos. The archive contains text documents in html format and images illustrating...

Radiocarbon dating bone samples recovered from gravel sites

Type: Scientific datasets Publisher: Archaeology Data Service

The Radiocarbon dating bone samples recovered from gravel sites is an Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund project as rebursed by English Heritage. The project was undertaken by the Oxford Radiocarbon Accelerator Unit. Radiocarbon pre-treatment chemistry is costly and time-consuming and so...
