$2.4 M SSHRC grant funds international team of experts led by University of Calgary archaeologist in Tanzania’s Olduvai Gorge<\/strong><\/p>\n

Earlier this summer University of Calgary archaeologist Julio Mercader began working with a multidisciplinary team of researchers to study ancient diets, stone tools and sociality in the face of environmental changes at several sites known to be some of the cradles of humanity, dating back 1.8 million years.<\/p>\n

The multi-ear excavations \u2013 made possible thanks to a SSHRC Partnership Grant for $2,461,839 over seven years \u2013 will mark the first time that a Canadian led team has ventured into the Olduvai Gorge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Conservation Area.<\/p>\n

\u00a0“There has never been a partnership this wide and far-reaching at the Olduvai Gorge, with so many experts from different labs, institutions and countries,” says Mercader, an associate professor in the Department of Anthropology and Archaeology at the University of Calgary. “The mix of research topics is truly compelling, because we’re covering the technology, the climate, the diet, the plant life, the human realities. That mix is important. This is the sort of effort that no single team of researchers could achieve on its own.”<\/p>\n

Indeed, the team Mercader brings together will include 20 scholars from 10 organizations and four countries, including universities in the U.S., Spain, Tanzania and Canada. The partnership extends across disciplines to include archaeologists, paleoanthropologists, museologists, social and environmental scientists, geoscientists, biologists and conservationists.<\/p>\n

The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS), with financial support from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, announces competitions for Dissertation-completion fellowships and Early-career postdoctoral fellowships. All applicants must be citizens of a sub-Saharan African country residing and working in Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, or Uganda.<\/p>\n

Proposed projects must be in the humanities, defined by the study of history, language, and culture, and by qualitative approaches in research. The list of humanities disciplines includes anthropology, archaeology, studies of the fine and performing arts, history, linguistics, literature studies, studies of religion, and philosophy.<\/p>\n

The CENIEH team, led by Manuel Santonja, starts this summer its seventh season of excavations at the Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania, with the aim of expanding the excavation area and start traceological analysis<\/span>.<\/p>\n

In the so-called Bed II (1.7 to 1.3 million years), the team has focused on the site Thiongo Korongo (TK) with an age of 1.4 million years. There two stratigraphical levels of Acheulean technology are being excavated. Even though these levels are very closely situated they show very different activity, especially for the large tools.<\/span><\/p>\n

\"Olduvai_TK_Campaign_2016_CENIEH\"<\/p>\n

The excavation area will be expanded to work with a more representative area of the two different levels.<\/span> Excavations will start at the newly discovered DJK site, dated 1.7 to 1.6 million years. Oldowan lithics were found there, associated to hippopotamus remains.<\/span> Finally several surveys are to be conducted at FK, where a large concentration of small bifaces were found, \u00a0<\/span>relatively standardized.<\/p>\n

This excavation campaign forms part of The Olduvai Paleonthropology and Paleoecology Project (TOPPP).<\/span><\/span><\/span><\/h4>\n<\/div>\r\n <\/div>\r\n\t\t
