|OldStoneAge.Com - Paleolithic Research on the Web|
This website presents current and past projects regarding OldStoneAge (Paleolithic) Archaeology.
OldStoneAge.com is an umbrella organization that includes the research and support of a whole host of current archaeologists, specialists, students, volunteers, and sponsors.
Their research spans the Mediterranean ranging from caves in the Southwest of France to the High Desert in Egypt. The work done has contributed significantly to the study of OldStoneAge archaeology and this website allows for new and interactive ways to present research including searchable databases of finds, numerous pictures, interactive maps, and downloadable archaeological software in addition to basic site writeups and links to pdf files of their complete published research.
It has been designed to be a useful resource for both students and experts of the discipline alike.
|In 2010 we re-opened the site of La Ferrassie. Work is on-going at this site to re-locate in situ deposits, study the geology, obtain dates, and perhaps say something of the context of the La Ferrassie skeletons.|
|2010 was the second season of new test excavations at the late Middle Paleolithic French site of Abri Peyrony (also known as Haut de Combe-Capelle). There are no excavations planned for this site in 2011. We are currently analyzing the finds.|
|We excavated Roc de Marsal from 2004 to 2010. We are now finishing the analysis.|
The evidence at Roc de Marsal for Neandertal burials is discussed with Alan Alda on PBS's The Human Spark. Watch also the discussion on what makes us modern.
|We started working at the Moroccan site of Smuggler's Cave (also known as Contrebandier) in 2006. The last excavation season was late spring 2010. Study of the material is on-going.|
|Pech de l'Aze IV, a site we excavated from 2000-2003, is presented in a web site written expressly for non-archaeologists with video clips and background information on archaeological methods.|
| The data and information on this website are for educational and research purposes.
