The last weeks of September DEATHREVOL traveled to Germany. First to Tübingen, where the whole team participated in the ESHE Congress (European Society for the study of Human Evolution) that took place at the University of Tübingen. In the poster session, we presented our DEATHREVOL project. The congress ended with an excursion to the Swabian Jura sites, in particular to Höhle Fels and Geissenklosterle in the Ach valley.

Part of the team continued the trip in order to trace the evolution and diversity of mortuary practices in the European fossil record. They carried out taphonomic analyses of the Steinheim collection at “Staatliches Museum für Naturkunde Stuttgart” with the support of Reinard Ziegeler, Achin Lehmkuhl and Eli Amson.

Finally, they were also able to study the Ehrinsdorf and Bilzingsleben collections at the “Landesamt für Denkmalpflege und Archäologie” (Weimar) and even visit the Ehrinsdorf site accompanied by Tim Schhüler.
