CRC 1266 - Scales of Transformation

Cluster B: “Complex Foragers”

Cluster Chronology
Late Pleistocene and Early Holocene developments in Northern Europe. A: archaeological CRC projects working on this time period and area; B: general archaeological classification; C: presence of archaeological groups in the southwestern Baltic region; D: approximate position of transformation phases; E: general climate development in the North Atlantic region based on oxygen isotope curve from NorthGRIP in the GICC05 chronology (cf. Grimm, in press, Fig. 29); F: general environmental development in the southwestern Baltic region; G: chronological position of the local study areas (yellow: 14C-dated periods; orange: stratigraphic and archaeological attribution).

Cluster B is divided in projects two sub-projects (B1, B2). Providing research about transformation in Late Pleistocene and Early Holocene populations, it is part of research focus 2, “Transformations of socio-economic formations”.
