Description :
Pedological and geophysical field methods in combination with laboratory analyses were used in close proximity to the archaeological excavation site at Mintraching (near Regensburg, Bavaria). Studies about the terrace stratigraphy of the river Danube and associated soil profiles provided data to determine the altitude of the ancient surface. Furthermore, the accumulation history of black sediments distributed nearby is described. Erosion and deposition of the black material give an indication of anthropogenic activities like clearing and farming in the close vicinity of the former settlement area which was located next to an old water filled channel.
