Abstract
In the current state of research, Palaeolithic open-air sites in the Swabian Jura are not very numerous nor in the most cases well researched, although a great potential for these sites exists. The main problem is, that over the last decades, Palaeolithic research in the Swabian Jura focused mainly on cave sites and that subsequently, open-air sites existed mostly in the shadows of these well known caves. The data basis for our research composed of a large number of stone artefacts. Based on meticulous typological and technological analyses of stone artefacts recovered either by surface prospections or by excavations, we were able to identify several new Palaeolithic open-air sites in this region that cover a time span from the Middle to the Upper Palaeolithic. The Middle Palaeolithic is present at Börslingen-Eisenberg, Wippingen-Sonderbuch (both Alb-Donau-Kreis) and Waldstetten-Schlatt (Ostalbkreis). An Early Upper Palaeolithic component is proven for all previous sites as well, but additionally we can name the Magdalenian site Heubach-Sand (Ostalbkreis). These sites have in common, that they are all connected to raw-material outcrops situated either directly on site or in their immediate surroundings.
