Human Evolution and its Context str. 153-169Summary: This chapter presents some new data on, and interpretations of the Croatian Middle and Early Upper Paleolithic. Alternative interpretations of the Middle/Upper Paleolithic interface in Vindija cave (situated in the Zagorje region of northwestern Croatia) are reported, together with preliminary results of research on the early Upper Paleolithic site of Bukovac pećina (situated in the region of Gorski kotar), and the late Dalmatian Middle Paleolithic sites of Mujina pećina, Velika pećina in Kličevica and Kaštel Štafilić—Resnik. The archaeological assemblage(Mousterian industry) and the results of chronometric dating make the sequences of these Dalmatian sites contemporary with late Neandertals and with the earliest known anatomically modern human groups in Europe. This recent research greatly contributes to our understanding of the distribution of Neandertals and the complexity of the Middle/Upper Paleolithic interface.
