The Epi-Palaeolithic of Öküzini cave (SW Anatolia) and its mobiliary art

  • Marcel Otte (a1), Isin Yalcinkaya (a2), Jean-Marc Leotard (a1), Metin Kartal (a2), Ofer Bar-Yosef (a3), Janusz Kozlowski (a4), Ignacio López Bayón (a1) and Alexander Marshack (a3)...

Late and Epi-Palaeolithic sequences are well known from field work and publications in southeast Europe and the Levant. Current research in Anatolia promises to shed new light on the vast region that connects these two areas. At Öküzini cave a detailed sequence of Terminal Pleistocene and Early Holocene assemblages contributes greatly to our understanding.
