The discussions about the significance of technological innovations in lithic production systems at the Middle to Upper Palaeolithic transition are characterised by constant changes. Differing interpretations of blades and bladelets make this particularly clear. In this article, we present a technological analysis of the core configuration of the Middle Palaeolithic assemblage from Salzgitter-Lebenstedt. Besides the dominant Levallois methods, a typical Middle Palaeolithic unidirectional blade… 
Revisiting the Middle Palaeolithic site Volkringhauser Höhle (North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany)
In the current article the Palaeolithic material of the Volkringhauser Höhle is presented comprehensively for the first time. The material came to light during the course of two different
Bladelet production , core reduction strategies , and efficiency of core configuration at the Middle Palaeolithic site Balver Höhle ( North Rhine Westphalia , Germany )
In past years, the significance of bladelet production has become more and more important within the discussion about the transition from the Middle to the Upper Palaeolithic. The diversity of
Stone tool analysis and context of a new late Middle Paleolithic site in western central Europe - Pouch-Terrassenpfeiler, Ldkr. Anhalt-Bitterfeld, Germany = Eine neue spätmittelpaläolithische Fundstelle im westlichen Mitteleuropa – Pouch-Terrassenpfeiler, Ldkr. Anhalt-Bitterfeld, Deutschland. Steina
In central Germany, the late Middle Paleolithic is characterized by the abundant use of prepared core techniques and a high variability in retouched pieces. Typical stone tools, like backed bifacial
Their lips are sealed: identifying hard stone, soft stone, and antler hammer direct percussion in Palaeolithic prismatic blade production
The present experiment examined the differentiation between hard stone, soft stone, and antler hammer in Upper Palaeolithic direct percussion, prismatic blade production through the experimental
Luminescence chronology of the key-Middle Paleolithic site Khotylevo I (Western Russia) - Implications for the timing of occupation, site formation and landscape evolution
Abstract Here we present the luminescence chronology for the Middle Paleolithic open-air site of Khotylevo I, area I-6-2, in Western Russia. Even with a sizable number of such sites available on the

Despite the rapid expansion of archaeological knowledge of the Paleolithic over the past several decades, some generalized interpretive frameworks inherited from previous generations of researchers
Adults only. Reindeer hunting at the middle palaeolithic site salzgitter lebenstedt, northern Germany.
TLDR
The results indicate autumn hunting of reindeer by Middle Palaeolithic hominids and the Salzgitter Lebenstedt assemblage is the best example yet known in terms of systematic and routinized processing of game.

Tooth microwear was analyzed for a large sample of wild-shot barren-ground caribou (Rangifer tarandus groenlandicus) from the Kaminuriak population of eastern Canada. This sample was compared to the

In the present paper we systematically evaluate the radiometric database underlying the Middle to Upper Palaeolithc transition in southwestern Europe.The different models which attempt to explain the
Radiocarbon dating the appearance of modern humans and timing of cultural innovations in Europe: new results and new challenges.
TLDR
New radiocarbon dates from the Swabian Jura support the hypothesis that populations of modern humans entered the region by way of the "Danube Corridor" and support the "Kulturpumpe" hypothesis that important cultural innovations of the Aurignacian and Gravettian in Swabia predate similar developments in other regions of Europe.

TLDR
A variant of this model sees behavioral modernity resulting from a rapid biological change, a brain mutation producing no apparent change in skull anatomy, which occurred in Europe or, more probably, in Africa at ca.
