Northern Bosnia is a key location in which to investigate human-environment interactions in the Late Pleistocene /Middle-Upper Palaeolithic. Our research aims to evaluate hominan resource networks and investigate palaeoenvironmental conditions during this period, and address the following:

  • Catalogue and review the known Middle-Upper Palaeolithic archaeological record and research in this region, concentrating on the upper Vrbas valley
  • Conduct reconnaissance investigations of site and possible lithic resource locations using interdisciplinary geoarchaeological approaches including remote sensing and terrain mapping, geological and soil/sediment deposit modelling and selected site sampling for physical, geo-chemical and micromorphological analyses
  • Establish the potential of this area for further interdisciplinary geoarchaeological research along with appropriate colleagues in Bosnia and Serbia.
