Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Dating a sequence rich in anthropological remains is often a difficult task, even though in many cases a variety of potentially datable materials is
available. At Crvena Stijena, the numerous animal bones left by the inhabitants of the cave now offer the possibility to use the Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) technique for obtaining chronological data. The Middle Paleolithic occupants also left behind in the archaeological layers artifacts made of flint, some of which were heated when they came into contact with fires made by these occupants.
