'Jelínek J, 2012: The discovery of a Neanderthal jawbone (Kůlna I) in Kůlna Cave, Moravia. Anthropologie (Brno) 50, 2: 147-166'.
In this paper, a human maxilla from the Mousterian layer of Kůlna Cave (Moravian Karst, Czech Republic) found in 1965 is presented. The layer was intact and yielded numerous Mousterian-type tools and fossil animal bones. The find is represented by the right part of a maxilla with four teeth (canine, both premolars and the first molar) and belongs to a 14-year-old individual. The find exhibits a series of both primitive and progressive traits. This mixture of traits is typical not only of this find from Kùlna Cave but also of many earlier finds, particularly of those from Central and Eastern Europe and from the Near East. The find from Kùlna Cave provides further evidence of a developmental type of the Neanderthal humans that clearly indicates a continuous transition from older forms to later Homo sapiens sapiens. The find of a Neanderthal human from Kùlna Cave is designated as Homo sapiens neanderthalensis. This article is a reprint of a previously published article (Jelínek J., 1967: Anthropologie (Brno) 5, 1: 3-19).
