'Jelínek J, 2012: The Mladeč finds and their evolutionary importance. Anthropologie (Brno) 50, 2: 167-175'.
In 1960-1963 the author reexcavated the Mladeč caves situated in central Moravia and famous through the numerous human remains found there. It was found that these finds belong to the first Upper Palaeolithic interstadial and are one of the earliest Homo sapiens sapiens finds with certain archaic features and with strong sexual dimorphism. The male skull No. 5 is the lowest known Upper Palaeolithic skull of Homo sapiens sapiens. The morphological features of some of the male skulls demonstrate well the Neanderthaloid heritage. This and the fact that they are contemporary with latest Homo sapiens neanderthalensis finds stress their importance. This article is a reprint of a previously published article (Jelínek J., 1983: Anthropologie (Brno) 21, 1: 57-64).
