Archaeological, palynological and palaeolimnological evidence is combined with new AMS radiocarbon dates to shed new light on a long-known, yet only partially understood, Upper Palaeolithic occupation in southeast Europe. 

Historical biogeography and Late Quaternary environmental change of Lake Pamvotis, Ioannina (north‐western Greece): evidence from ostracods

The purpose of this study is to (1) investigate the Quaternary history of Lake Pamvotis using fossil ostracod faunal and isotopic analyses, and (2) use this fossil evidence to assess the pedigree of

Site formation processes in Theopetra Cave: A record of climatic change during the Late Pleistocene and Early Holocene in Thessaly, Greece

Theopetra Cave preserves a 6.4‐m‐thick sedimentary sequence characterized by alternating, mostly water‐lain sediments, and multisequence burnt layers. Eighteen principal radiocarbon ages provide

New AMS dates from Upper Palaeolithic Kastritsa

Thirty-four years ago there appeared in the Proceedings of the Prehistoric Society the third and final paper in a series reporting the research of Eric Higgs and his colleagues into the climate,

The anthropogenic influence on wildfire regimes: charcoal records from the Holocene and Last Interglacial at Ioannina, Greece

To characterize the changing fire regime of a Mediterranean landscape during the Holocene and the Last Interglacial and, by comparing the two periods, to improve our understanding of the extent and

Stable Places and Changing Perceptions: Cave Archaeology in Greece

This volume provides a welcome introduction to cave archaeology generally (or it may be used as a reader on aspects of cave research); its purpose is to underline the importance of caves in

New Neanderthal remains from Mani peninsula, Southern Greece: the Kalamakia Middle Paleolithic cave site.

A multi-proxy study of Late Holocene environmental change in the Prokletije Mountains, Montenegro and Albania

Palaeoenvironmental investigations from the Lake Plav catchment of the Prokletije Mountains in Montenegro and Albania, allowed primarily climatic change and anthropogenic influences during the Late

The paleoanthropology of Greece

The paleoanthopological record of Greece is reviewed, finding that, as one of the three Mediterranean peninsulas, it acted as a refugium for plant, animal, and, most likely, human populations during glacial conditions.



The biostratigraphy, palaeoecology and geochemistry of a long lacustrine sequence from NW Greece

Examination of an impOltant new 319m core of lake sediment recovered from Ioannina in NW Greece has attempted to relate changes in the lake to variations in the regional climate of south-central

Asprochaliko and Kastritsa: Further Investigations of Palaeolithic Settlement and Economy in Epirus (North-West Greece)

This paper sets out the detailed stratigraphy and chronology of the palaeolithic rockshelters of Asprochaliko and Kastritsa excavated in the 1960s, the methods used by the original investigators in

Observations made soon after recent major earthquakes in Algeria, California and Japan have shown that repeated motions on buried fault planes in seismically active areas cause incremental folding of

Vegetation Change through Glacial-Interglacial Cycles: A Long Pollen Sequence Perspective

A core recovered from a thick sedimentary sequence in the Ioannina basin, on the western flank of the Pindus M ountain Range, northwest Greece, presents the opportunity to observe multiple changes in

The Climate, Environment and Industries of Stone Age Greece: Part II

In 1965 the investigations described in the first paper of the series were resumed in Epirus. The excavation of the rock shelter of Asprochaliko was continued, and further geological observations

Technological and typological studies of the chipped-stone industries of Palaeolithic Greece have hitherto been founded upon thorough descriptions of the morphological attributes of artefacts. This

Calibration of the 14C timescale over the past 30,000 years using mass spectrometric U–Th ages from Barbados corals

Uranium–thorium ages obtained by mass spectrometry from corals raised off the island of Barbados confirm the high precision of this technique over at least the past 30,000 years. Comparison of the

Thermohaline instability in the North Atlantic during meltwater events: Stable isotope and ice-rafted detritus records from Core SO75-26KL, Portuguese Margin

A benthic isotope record has been measured for core SO75-26KL from the upper Portuguese margin (1099 m water depth) to monitor the response of thermohaline overturn in the North Atlantic during
