By Walpurga Antl-Weiser (auth.), Univ.-Prof. Dr. Maria Teschler-Nicola (eds.)

The higher Paleolithic fossils of the Mladec caves, South Moravia, excavated on the finish of the nineteenth century, carry a key place within the present dialogue on smooth human emergence inside of Europe and the destiny of the Neanderthals. even if definitely early sleek people - lately radio carbon dated to 31.000 years BP - their morphological variability and the presence of archaic positive factors are indicative to a point of local Neanderthal ancestry. The superbly illustrated monograph addresses - for the 1st time - the total assemblage of the unearths, together with the human cranial, put up cranial, the teeth and jaw fragments of numerous participants (most of them saved on the traditional heritage Museum Vienna) in addition to the faunal continues to be and the archaeological gadgets. prime scientists current their effects, received with leading edge ideas comparable to DNA research, 3D-morphometry and isotope research, that are of serious value for extra discussions on either human evolution and archaeological matters.

In fact, portions of the calcite are still visible on some of the fossils preserved in the Naturhistorisches Museum Wien. Today, several (two or three) generations of calcite formation are preserved on the walls of the hall. Adjacent to Szombathy’s findspot “a”, we collected samples for dating (Fig. 3c). The calcite is partly compact, with curved layering over and around vugs formed either by sediment or water. It is also partly structured into micro-layers separated by air-gaps or interlayers with a clayey appearance.
