As already mentioned in yesterday’s post our survey team has found traces of Paleolithic human occupation. At a location in the vicinity of Peştera from which it was already known that lithics were found there in the past we collected several more flakes and cores. Today we prepared a profile to trace the find horizon from which the surface finds seem to erode. This profile not only revealed few in situ lithics embedded in loess, but also features a paleosol horizon.With this evidence we’re going to try to uncover the find horizons in other profils within the next few days.
