Benjamin Schürch & Harald Floss:

Wippingen-Sonderbuch a new open-air site in the Swabian Jura

The working group directed by H. Floss, Institut für Ur- und Frühgeschichte und Archäologie des Mittelalters, University of Tübingen, Abteilung Ältere Urgeschichte und Quartärökologie, is currently working on several open-air sites in the Swabian Jura. Wippingen-Sonderbuch is one of those sites.

The stone artefacts of the site originate from two surface collections (collection Robert Bollow and Jörg Sauer). Due to this origin the artefacts are mixed. These stone artefacts can be classified to the Middle Palaeolithic, the Early Upper Palaeolithic and the Neolithic (Floss/Schürch 2015). In order to separate the mixed assemblages, technological and typological knowledge of the Neolithic and Palaeolithic stone industries had to be applied. The site Wippingen-Sonderbuch is located at the south central part of the Blaubeurer Alb. The valley deepening of the ancestral Danube led to the sedimentation of river gravels at the site. The site is situated at the edge of an uvala (Karstwanne) that is formed by three dolines. On the edges of this karst phenomenon erosion can be observed. These special geological events maybe led to extraordinary sedimentation conditions. In the surrounding of Wippingen-Sonderbuch there are several open air sites which contain Palaeolithic and Neolithic artefacts as well. They show that Wippingen-Sonderbuch is not an exceptional case in the region of the Blaubeurer Alb (Schürch 2015).
