New scientific drillings at Lake Fimon (Venetian Alpine foothills, north-eastern Italy)

This area is well-known as it provides both a Late Pleistocene palaeoecological record (Pini et al., 2010) and several Middle to Late Palaeolithic sites yielding evidence of Neandertal and AMH occupation (Grotta Fumane and Riparo Broion shelter). High-resolution palynostratigraphic researches are currently in progress on the Lake Fimon cores to answer specific questions relevant to the ERC Project, i.e. the effects of climate variability on the environments of last Neandertals – early AMH, the role of fire, etc.
