The department of Physical Geography and Geoecology of the RWTH Aachen University and the Department of Prehistoric Archaeology of the University of Cologne invite scientists from the fields of Paleolithic archeology, paleoclimatology and paleo modelling on 28th and 29th November 2019 to Aachen to participate in our International Workshop on Loess and Archeology. The Workshop is organized in the frame of the CRC806 “Our Way to Europe”-project) and will be held at the guesthouse ‘Königshügel’.

Numerous archeological sites are embedded in Eurasian loess sequences which calls for a combined investigation of archeological and paleogeographical findings. During the two-day workshop newest scientific results in the fields of archeology, geoarcheology, paleogeography and paleoclimatology are shared and discussed. We also strongly invite participants from the modelling community to strengthen collaborations between the various disciplines. This meeting follows up on a successful workshop about ‘Last glacial paleogeography and archeology in the Eastern Mediterranean and Eastern European loess belt’ held in 2012.

The registration is now open until the registration and abstract submission deadline on 30th September 2019. Workshop fees are 80€ (plus 30€ for the conference dinner). We are happy to announce that there are scholarships available for early career scientists! Abstracts must not exceed a word count of 300 words and can be send together with the registration form to Further information on
