Palaeolithic Archaeology is a one-year MA-specialisation at the internationally renowned Archaeology Faculty of Leiden University. This programme focuses on human origins, including Neanderthals and early modern humans.
The courses include findings from our large-scale excavations at Neumark-Nord 2 (Germany), a unique Middle Palaeolithic site with excellent preservation of bone and stone material in fine-grained lake deposits, dating to about 125,000 years ago. Currently, our excavations focus on the site of Les Cottés (France), which has an excellent record of the archaeology of both the last Neanderthals and the earliest modern humans.
