The Geoarchaeology of Crvena Stijena: Site formation processes, palaeoenvironments and hominin activity

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Geoarchaeological investigations of archaeological stratigraphy are important for a number of reasons. First, they allow for the assessment of the completeness of the stratigraphy and the archaeological patterns contained therein (Schiffer, 1987; Goldberg & Berna, 2010). Second, such studies can serve as important, stand-alone records of environmental change, which can be directly compared to changes in the cultural and paleontological record stored in the cave as well as independent off-site records of environmental change (e.g., lacustrine and fluvial archives).
