The authors explore the arrival of the earliest Gravettian in north-west Europe, using new high precision radiocarbon dates for bone excavated at Maisières-Canal in Belgium to define a short-lived occupation around 33 000 years ago. The tanged points in that assemblage have parallels in British sites, including Goat's Hole (Paviland). This is the site of the famous ochred burial of a young adult male, confusingly known as the ‘Red Lady’, now dated to around 34 000 BP. The new results… Expand
The British Earlier Upper Palaeolithic: Settlement and Chronology
Abstract This chapter presents an overview of the Earlier Upper Palaeolithic human record from the British Isles, and how our understanding of the period has been transformed by new radiocarbonExpand
Precision dating of the Palaeolithic: a new radiocarbon chronology for the Abri Pataud (France), a key Aurignacian sequence.
TLDR
A new series of AMS dates on ultrafiltered bone gelatin extracted from identified cutmarked or humanly-modified bones and teeth from the site of Abri Pataud allow detailed understanding of the pace of cultural changes within the Aurignacian I and II levels of the site, something not achievable before. Expand
The chronology of the earliest Upper Palaeolithic in northern Iberia: New insights from L'Arbreda, Labeko Koba and La Viña.
TLDR
The evidence suggests that major changes in technocomplexes occurred contemporaneously between the Mediterranean and Atlantic regions of northern Iberia, with the Aurignacian appearing around 42 ka cal BP, a date broadly consistent with the appearance of this industry elsewhere in Western Europe. Expand
A refined chronology for the Gravettian sequence of Abri Pataud.
TLDR
18 new radiocarbon dates on cut-marked animal bones from the Gravettian part of the Abri Pataud site complete the dating of this important sequence and provide secure information for the appearance and development of the technocomplexes linked with early modern humans and their establishment in western Europe.

Trou du Renard and the Belgian Aurignacian
A wealth of cave sites makes southern Belgium the most important area for understanding the north-western European Early Upper Palaeolithic. However, despite their abundance, the interpretation ofExpand
Mid-to-late Marine Isotope Stage 3 mammal faunas of Britain: a new look
Abstract Conscious of the difficulty of reliably dating Pleistocene-age bone we re-examine the British record of radiocarbon-dated fauna from mid-to-late Marine Isotope Stage (MIS) 3 and early MIS 2,Expand
The timing of Aurignacian occupation of the British Peninsula
Unlike regions farther south, the timing of the appearance of the Aurignacian in the far northwest of Europe is very poorly defined. This is the result of a less abundant archaeological record andExpand
Populations headed south? The Gravettian from a palaeodemographic point of view
Abstract The Gravettian is known for its technological innovations and artisanal craftwork. At the same time, continued climatic deterioration led to the coldest and driest conditions since theExpand
The mid Upper Palaeolithic of European Russia: chronology, culture history and context: a study of five Gravettian backed lithic assemblages
This thesis examines the Mid Upper Palaeolithic (MUP) of Russia (ca. 30,000–20,000 14C BP). During this time, as in the rest of Europe, the principal archaeological industry is known as theExpand

The "Red Lady" ages gracefully: new ultrafiltration AMS determinations from Paviland.
TLDR
New determinations are reported that suggest that the "Red Lady" partial human skeleton at Goat's Hole, Paviland, in south Wales is, by a significant margin, the oldest of a group of 'rich,' Mid-Upper Paleolithic burials. Expand
A Mid-Upper Palaeolithic human humerus from Eel Point, South Wales, UK.
TLDR
Stable carbon and nitrogen isotope measurements do not support certain use of marine foods but highlight the need for more research on contemporary faunal remains in order to better interpret human values from this period. Expand
