Early Holocene Contact between Africa and Europe and its Environmental Context

Since 2009 this project has investigated intercontinental contact between North Africa and the Iberian Peninsula during the Holocene. In the early Holocene and the beginning of the Neolithic, a phase of increased mobility in the western Mediterranean has been documented. The changing environment during this period had an important influence on human mobility. The field research in Morocco is concentrated in the east of the Rif region. Work is being carried out in cooperation with the KAAK, Bonn and the INSAP, Rabat.
