Congratulations to Christina-Maria Wiesner! A graduate student in the Master’s programme of Archaeology, she has received the student prize of the German Society for Pre- and Protohistory (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Ur- und Frühgeschichte, DGUF) for her Master’s thesis. The study award honours special achievements by students and thus aims to promote young academics.  In her thesis, Wiesner analysed prehistoric settlement patterns and was able to prove that Neanderthals in southern Germany were quite pragmatic in their choice of campsites. She also addressed likelihoods of finding undiscovered sites in a specific area. Future excavations in Bavaria will be able to profit from her work.
