'Antl-Weiser W, 2009: The time of the Willendorf figurines and new results of Palaeolithic research in Lower Austria. Anthropologie (Brno) 47, 1-2: 131-141'.
The article deals with the time of the Willendorf figurines and new results of Palaeolithic research in Lower Austria. The first part concentrates on the finding of the Willendorf figurines whereas the second part is dedicated to the time when the Venus from Willendorf was deposited. As to Venus I, the description of raw material probably coming from a Moravian source and the carving traces are discussed in more detail. The contribution also contains a short characteristic of the Figurines II and III. Apart from mentioning the very few sites of this period so far known in Lower Austria, the main focus of the second part is put on the site Grub/Kranawetberg in the area of Stillfried where excavations started in 1993. For its geographical position, chronology and stratigraphy as well as clear differences between cultural layers the site is worth being discussed in a broader regional context. The voluminous assemblage of ivory beads and pendants of Grub/Kranawetberg is also presented.
