GS Human Development in Landscapes


The institute for Pre- and Protohistory as an interdisciplinary institution is heavily involved in the graduate school HDL, which is funded by the excellence initiative.

The environment in which humans reside influences every aspect of their societies. The Graduate School Human Development in Landscapes is working on uncovering all aspects of the relationship of humans and their environments over the past thousands of years . The concept lies somewhere between cultural and natural sciences and involves molecular biology and archaeology, as well as geoinformatics and art history, geophysics and isotope research, antiquity studies and paeleo-environmental research. New junior professorships for environmental archaeology and environmental history complement the range of courses offered by the graduate school.
