Abstract :

Owing to a thick blanket of loess and other later geological disruptions, the earliest hominins to reach Europe are hard to find. To a handful of possible sites, our authors add a new assemblage of lithics with a clear local context and corroborated OSL ages. Ancient humans were present in what is now Romania between 300 000 and 400 000 years ago. Keywords: Europe, Romania, Lower Palaeolithic, hominin, lithics, mode 1, OSL dating Supplementary material is provided online at
