What the excavations in Schöningen tell us about Middle Pleistocene lifeways in Northern Europe

Il seminario si terrà nell’ Aula 1A del Dipartimento di Studi Umanistici - C.so Ercole I d’Este 32

 

La lezione sarà tenuta in INGLESE

The seminar presents the results of excavations and investigations at Scheoningen, an exceptional context with unique finds in Germany. The 1995 discovery of numerous wooden artifacts, most notably at least 10 carefully made spears together with the skeletons of at least 20 to 25 butchered horses, brought the debate about hunting versus scavenging among late archaic hominins and analogous arguments about the purportedly primitive behavior of Homo heidelbergensis and Neanderthals to an end.
