Vortragende: Faysal Bibi (Museum für Naturkunde Berlin) und Sumiko Tsukamoto (LIAG)
The Atbara River in eastern Sudan is one of the major tributaries of the Nile, and is a possible route of modern humans out of Africa. Yet this area has attracted little attention compared to the neighbouring East African Rift Valley to the south. Up to 50 m thick Pleistocene fluvial sediments in the Middle Atbara Valley contain abundant vertebrate fossils and stone artefacts. In this seminar presentation, Faysal Bibi will introduce our projects (DFG, ERC) and Tsukamoto will talk about luminescence dating of the fluvial sediment sequence. (English)
