About this book

Language: English with bilingual summary chapter in English and German

This monograph on the Central European Magdalenian, a human culture of the Upper Paleolithic in western Europe, dating from around 17,000 to 12,000 years, aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the archaeological record of this period. It sheds new light on five regional groups between the Rhone valley to the west and the Vistula-valley to the east, which existed roughly between 20,000 and 14,000 years ago. Readers will discover that these groups are characterized with regard to their environmental setting (including faunal and vegetational aspects), lithic raw material and mollusk shell procurement, typology, technology and artesian craftworks. The work also explores an alternative interpretation of bidirectional recolonization from both Franco-Cantabria and Eastern Central Europe after the Last Glacial Maximum. The Central European Magdalenian will appeal to researchers and scholars in archaeology and cognate fields.
