'Ginter B, Połtowicz-Bobak M, 2020: Spatial-functional Arrangement of Magdalenian Camp at Dzierżysław in upper Silesia (Poland). Anthropologie (Brno) 58, 2-3: 251-262'.
The Moravian Gate is one of the main migration routes of Central Europe. One of the most significant sites dating to the Magdalenian in the Moravian Gate area is Dzierżysław 35 on the Głubczyce Plateau. A seasonal base camp used several times by facies à triangles huntergatherers. Two distinct sections of the camp may be discerned – southern, with a dwelling and concentrations of artefacts, bones and stones, and northern, not as rich, with flint concentrations. Most probably the two sections had been used at different times. Analysis of finds, including use-wear examination, does not reveal major differentiation in function of individual concentrations. Former workshops are the easiest to identify.
