'Kaminská Ľ, 2015: Szeletian Finds from Trenčianske Teplice, Slovakia. Anthropologie (Brno) 53, 1-2: 203-213'.
The poplar-shaped leaf point is a distinctive Szeletian artefact, designated a Moravany-Dlhá-type point, after the eponymous site. Several points of this type are also known from the site of Trenčianske Teplice near Trenčín, Slovakia. This article deals with the technological-typological evaluation of the lithic industry from Trenčianske Teplice based on Bárta's collections and our own investigation in 2009. Artefacts mostly made of radiolarite include Middle and Upper Palaeolithic tools. Neither the site's stratigraphy, nor dating have contributed to solving the Szeletian's chronological position in Slovakia. Chronologically Moravany-Dlhá is identified as younger than the Moravian Szeletian, the classical/Early Szeletian from the Szeleta Cave, and probably younger than the Lower Austrian sites dated to the earliest interpleniglacial oscillations GIS 12–GIS 11. According to recent radiometric dating of the site, the Moravany-Dlhá facies followed the Campanian Ignimbrite eruption and the beginning of cold Heinrich Event 4.
