Sample text

The repetition of architectural features such as hearths and the spatially anchored vertical sequences of material in the Epi-gravettian phases suggest an important shift in how people perceived particular places in landscapes at the end of the upper Palaeolithic. Some places, like Temnata Dupka, were repeatedly chosen as appropriate bases for activities and for longer periods of residence. Flint acquisition networks While activities at an intra-site level document small groups of people working and, perhaps, living together in particular caves in the upper Palaeolithic, there is also good evidence for the development of activities which stretched people across the landscapes and regions of the Balkans.

Earlier expressions of identity through knapping skills, effort and time invested in producing elaborate flintcutting tools as well as using them in events of meat distribution were superceded by the new, more flexible combinations of materials that increased in frequency in the later stages of the upper Palaeolithic. New needs to express identities may have been part of wide-ranging networks of contacts and movements linked to acquiring raw flint. The reconstruction of a long, gradual upper Palaeolithic in 37 SETTING THE SCENE (BEFORE 6500 BC) which change occurred slowly and mobility was the over-riding theme to the organization of groups of people provides a stark contrast to what was to follow.

Through his analysis of the upper Palaeolithic fauna from Bacho Kiro, Kowalski has highlighted the differences between these Balkan conditions and those documented in the late glacial assemblages of western and central Europe (Kowalski 1982). The Bacho Kiro material lacks some species, such as lemmings, which are normally associated with tundra regimes. Bacho Kiro also has a higher proportion of steppe species, contains several steppe species which never reached the more northern regions and includes forest species which had disappeared in central Europe during the coldest phases (Kowalski 1982:67).
