Short summary Students get experienced to carry out geoarchaeological and Holocene palaeoecological studies. They learn to collaborate in groups while analyzing, compiling, combining, discussing and interpreting different available data (in part gained from S 152) within the frame of projects. A major aspect is the comparison of palaeoenvironmental results with recent data. Whereas one focus is lead on the analysis another one is set on the presentation (talk) and publication of the results.
