CRC 1266 - Scales of Transformation

Workgroup meeting at the Duvenseeer Moor
Workgroup meeting at the Duvenseeer Moor

This project will investigate the interplay of social and environmental transformations during the Early and Mid-Holocene period in Northern Germany with a focus on the increasing influence of humans on the environment. To this end, the available data of several well-investigated micro-regions are used together with additional archaeological and palaeo-ecological field-investigations with a multi-scalar, regional approach, which will explore the relationship of environmental changes, subsistence strategies, changes in social organisation and human impact on the environment.
