Introduction
I am a freelance geoarchaeologist specializing in geoarchaeological field surveys. I use soil outcrops, boreholes, as well as historical and geological maps to reconstruct the stratigraphic structure of landscapes.

Middle Neolithic circular enclosures, known as Kreisgrabenanlage (KGA), are the oldest known monumental sites in Central Europe, dating roughly to 4850-4600/4500 BC. These large prehistoric monuments are mainly discovered by aerial archaeology and have been investigated by geophysical prospection and archaeological excavations since the 1960s. The...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
A geophysical survey done by ground penetrating radar (GPR) of a middle-Neolithic triple ditch circular enclosure (German: "Kreisgrabenanlage") and its environs showed high reflections at 1.3 to 1 .7-meter depth, which could not be explained by geophysical methods alone. These reflections especially occur at the locations of the posts belonging to...

Excavations at the early Byzantine hillfort-settlement Caričin Grad hint at a relatively short time of active settlement of only 90 years. The cause for abandonment is still unknown, though it is widely assumed that ecological and environmental factors played a pivotal role. This study aims to evaluate, if soils and sediments in the vicinity of the...

In dieser Arbeit wird der Frage nachgegangen, ob im Umfeld der frühbyzantinische Stadt Caričin Grad mittels bodenkundlichen und sedimentologischen Untersuchungen Informationen zur Landnutzungsgeschichte gewonnen werden können und ob sich daraus weitere Hinweise zu den Ursachen für die Aufgabe der Siedlung ableiten lassen.

The results from a 1.3-hectare GPR survey in 2012 were confirmed during the 2013 excavation of a limited area (200 m2). Three phases of occupation were partly exposed. The most recent phase, Stratum 1, contained living and working facilities, e.g. for spinning, weaving and purple dyeing. Textile production also took place in the older Stratum 2, wh...

Archived project
Prospection of a Middle-Neolithic "Kreisgrabenanlage" and it's environment via vibration core samples. The goal is to supplement data previously retrieved by ground penetrating radar as well as to gather information about the paleoenvironment and the sedimentation processes that occured inside the main ditches of the structure.
