ITALIE : Iceman museum marks 15th birthday with plans to expand

ITALIE : Iceman museum marks 15th birthday with plans to expand | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

 The museum housing Italy's famous Iceman mummy marked its 15th birthday Thursday amid expansion plans to cope with the ever-increasing flow of visitors eager to see the prehistoric man in his northern Italian hometown of Bolzano. Officials at the South Tyrol Archaeological Museum, where the 5,300-year-old Copper Age hunter is kept in a refrigerated cell, said the venue might be merged with the nearby civic museum in the capital of the Alto Adige (South Tyrol) region. Since the archaeological museum was inaugurated on March 28, 1998, the Iceman, also known as Oetzi, from the Alpine valley where he was found in 1991, has attracted more than 3.5 million visitors.

FRANCE : Fouille archéologique de la Grande Rivoire 2013 (14ème campagne)

FRANCE :  Fouille archéologique de la Grande Rivoire 2013 (14ème campagne) | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

Le site de la Grande Rivoire est un abri-sous-roche localisé dans le massif du Vercors, à 580 m d’altitude. Son remplissage sédimentaire, stratifié sur plus de cinq mètres d’épaisseur, comprend des occupations humaines du Mésolithique, du Néolithique, de l’âge du Bronze et de l’âge du Fer. Durant la campagne 2013, nous fouillerons d’une part des dépôts de bergerie du Néolithique ancien (4500-5000 av. J.-C.) et d’autre part des niveaux d’occupation de chasseurs du Néolithique ancien et du Mésolithique récent (5000-6000 av. J.-C.). Les deux dernières semaines (du 15 au 30 septembre) seront consacrées à des travaux d’intérieur : traitement du mobilier, enregistrement informatique, préparation du rapport de fouille.

Travaux Des fouilles préventives ont mis au jour des vestiges néolithiques

Le passé refait surface à la Cavalade. Les fouilles archéologiques préventives, entamées le 10 décembre sur les chantiers du contournement ferroviaire deNîmes et Montpellier et le déplacement de l'autoroute A9, révèlent leurs secrets. Une vingtaine de chercheurs de l'Inrap (l'institut national de recherches archéologiques préventives) a mis au jour un village du Néolithique, de 2 900 à 2 700 av. JC. La zone de 7 hectares, derrière le lycée Mendès-France, près d'Odysseum, a été choisie par l'État pour être passée au peigne fin, avant le début des travaux d'ici 2014.

GB : Snowy landscape reveals Wales' forgotten ancient remains

GB : Snowy landscape reveals Wales' forgotten ancient remains | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

Archaeologists have discovered ancient remains after they were "brought back to life" by the snow covering the landscape.

Settlements dating back 4,000 years were only found because just the right amount of snow fell on the countryside.

Experts were flying over the landscape in a light aircraft when they spotted the Bronze Age remains below.

A combination of the snow and the low sun in the sky at this time of year provided ideal conditions to plot the sites for the first time.

GRECE : Archaeologists Explore Early Bronze Age Settlement on Greek Island of Keros

GRECE : Archaeologists Explore Early Bronze Age Settlement on Greek Island of Keros | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

Keros Island.  It is known for the famous assemblage of fragmentary Cycladic marble figurines popularly known as the "Keros Hoard", a collection of artifacts purportedly found by looters at the site of Kavos on the west coast of this now uninhabited Greek island in the Cyclades, southeast of Naxos in the Mediterranean. Many of the figurines, traded on the antiquities market, ended up in the Erlenmeyer Collection in Basel, Switzerland, with the rest dispersed among various museums and private collections. The figurines were said to have inspired the work of Pablo Picasso and Henry Moore.

POLOGNE : Afterlife of Early Neolithic houses in the Polish lowlands

POLOGNE : Afterlife of Early Neolithic houses in the Polish lowlands | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

The transition to farming on the Polish Lowland, which is a part of the North European Plain, was a complex process lasting over a millennium. This is partly due to the diversity of the landscapes (Figure 1) from the Pomerania Lakeland to the north with its rolling glacial hills and the south with the flat monotonous Great Poland Lowland Plain. The largest area is covered by a light sandy soil, however, in some regions heavy, fertile mollic gleysols formed over a clay subsoil can be found; comparable to the fertile loess-based soils prevailing in the uplands of southern Poland.
