Description :
Human activities have affected the paleoenvironmental system in the South Bavarian loess rolling hills and adjacent areas since neolithic times. Here, the AA. investigate colluvial deposits, soils, floodplain sediments and sediment sequences at archaeological sites. As important geoarchives, colluvial deposits document the beginning of the human-caused landscape changes, but they cannot record climatic signals. On the other hand, floodplain sediments alone cannot be used to represent the age, nature and extent of prehistoric erosion.
