'Moncel MH, Neruda P, 2000: The Kůlna Level 11: Some Observations on the Debitage Rules and Aims. The Originality of a Middle Palaeolithic Microlithic Assemblage (Kůlna cave, Czech Republic). Anthropologie (Brno) 38, 3: 219-247'.
The Kůlna level 11 is famous for its microlithic assemblage named Taubachian. This kind of industry also exists in other sites in Central Europe and Germany and the reasons for their presence are still discussed today. This study offers some observations about the technical behaviour of those people. The assemblage analysis tends to prove that the product size was voluntary and not imposed by environmental conditions. Only through the study of both fauna and industry the specific way of life of those people can be explained.
