Research Interests

Daniel Richter set up and installed the luminescence dating laboratory at the MPI-EVA. The major subject of his studies was hunter gatherer archaeology at the University of Tübingen (Germany) and archaeology at University College London (Great Britain). For his Master thesis he excavated a Mesolithic open air site (Rottenburg-Siebenlinden II) in southern Germany.

Initially trained as a Palaeolithic archaeologist, he switched to luminescence dating methods for his PhD to the Forschungsstelle Archäometrie der Heidelberger Akademie der Wissenschaften at the MPI for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg. During that time he received the major part of his training in luminescence at the LSCE at the CEA-CNRS in Gif-sur-Yvette (France). Subsequent to the PhD he became a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Geology at the McMaster University in Hamilton (Canada), where he received training in ESR-dating. Following his postdoctorate, he set up a luminescence dating laboratory at the Instituto Tecnológico e Nuclear in Sacavèm (Portugal). Fieldwork for numerous dating projects was performed in the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Israel, Morocco, Portugal, Spain and Syria.

Scientific Interests

  • Multi-chronometric dating of archaeological sites (TL, OSL, ESR), with an emphasis on luminescence methods in the palaeolithic period, while incorporating palaeoclimate data.
  • Development of dating methods and fundamental research in the luminescence of flint.
  • Chronometric dating of archaeological transitions, especially from the Middle to the Upper Palaeolithic.
  • Palaeoclimatology and human evolution.
  • Calibration of glacial 14C data.
  • Additional archaeometric interests in the sourcing of raw material
