'Kozłowski JK, 2004: Early Upper Paleolithic Levallois-Derived Industries in the Balkans and in the Middle Danube Basin. Anthropologie (Brno) 42, 3: 263-280'.
This paper deals with the problem of the Middle/Upper Paleolithic transition in south-eastern Europe, particularly with "transitional" industries derived from the Levallois technological tradition. The possibility of the local origin of these industries in the Balkans and in the middle Danube Basin from the Moustero-Levallosian has not been confirmed by recent studies. Some typological features indicate links with the Near Eastern Emirian/Ahmarian tradition. After reaching south-east Europe this tradition contributed to the formation of the Early Upper Paleolithic units in the Balkan, such as the Bachokirian which - in turn - participated in the genesis of - at least some - elements of "Aurignacian package" in south-eastern Europe.
