Plaquette 130 from Gönnersdorf. The slider enhances the visibility of a horse’s head, facing towards the left. The nostril part of the face is partially visible. The white engraved lines are digitally enhanced, but is representative of a fresh engraving, leaving behind white residual marks in the surface of the plaquette.
We are archaeologists and psychologists based in both Germany and the UK. Our interdisciplinary project combines methods from archaeology with those from the psychology of vision and action (haptics) to explore how people functioned in their living spaces in the past.
In particular, we focus on the 16,000 year old Upper Palaeolithic (Late Magdalenian) campsites of Gönnersdorf and Andernach-Martinsberg, located in the Central Rhineland, Germany.
