'Manolis SK, 1996: The Hellenic Late Pleistocene Fossils. Anthropologie (Brno) 34, 1-2: 89-97'.
The Pleistocene human remains in the Hellenic peninsula are sparse. Although archaeological and palaeoanthropological research has been developed during the recent decades, the results from several caves and open-air sites are not satisfying. The Middle Pleistocene is represented by the famous Petralona skull. The Late Pleistocene has demonstrated several uncertain [for their absolute dating] specimens. These are: the Apidima specimens (I, II & III) and the Crete Homo s. sapiens human remains. In this paper an attempt to summarize the available information about these fossils and to discuss several problems about their dating and their phylogenetic position has been made.
