'Antl W, Bosch M, 2015: The use of Ivory at the Gravettian site Grub/Kranawetberg, Lower Austria. Anthropologie (Brno) 53, 1-2: 233-244'.
From 1993 to 2011, excavations at the site Grub/Kranawetberg exposed four archaeological horizons (AH) separated by sterile loess deposits. The assemblage of adornments made from ivory is the biggest in the Austrian Palaeolithic comprising a wide range of varieties. Apart from tools, weapons, and adornments, there are pieces of raw material as well as semiproducts, waste from tool production and a series of unmodified fragments. This contribution gives a first view to the whole spectrum of ivory objects at this place. While ivory was found in all layers, AH4, the lowest cultural layer, contains more than 90% of the ivory unearthed at the site.
