CRC 1266 - Scales of Transformation

CRC 1266: "Scales of Transformation - Human-Environmental Interaction in Prehistoric and Archaic Societies"


The CRC 1266 takes a long-term perspective, from 15,000 BCE to 1 BCE, to investigate processes of transformation in a crucial period of human history, from late Pleistocene hunter-gatherers to early state societies.

Funded by the German Research Foundation, the CRC combines research of  around 60 scientists from eight institutions and the Johanna-Mestorf-Academy of the Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel as well as the Centre for Baltic and Scandinavian Archaeology (ZBSA) and the Archaeological State Museum Schloss Gottdorf.
