'Allsworth-Jones P, 2004: The Szeletian Revisited. Anthropologie (Brno) 42, 3: 281-296'.
Recent dating and other evidence is examined in order to determine whether the hypothesis regarding the nature, chronology, and hominid associations of the Szeletian which was previously supported by the author can still be regarded as correct. The present situation is one in which the partial contemporaneity of Neandertal and anatomically modern man in Central Europe and elsewhere is seemingly admitted on all sides. Their association respectively with the Szeletian (or the Middle Paleolithic) and the Aurignacian (or the Upper Paleolithic) is still valid. Therefore the acculturation hypothesis is still regarded as a tenable model to explain the characteristics of the Szeletian. But more research, involving both re-examination of old materials, and if possible the excavation of new sites, is needed to clarify many outstanding issues relating to the Initial Upper Paleolithic in Central Europe.
