Material type: ArticleArticleDescription: 334-334 str.Other title: Neandertal Niches on the Eastern Edge of the Great Adriatic Plain [Naslov na engleskom:].Subject(s): 6.07 | Neandertal Niches; Great Adriatic Plain; Istra; Ravni kotari; Kaštela area | Neandertal Niches; Great Adriatic Plain; Istra; Ravni kotari; Kaštela area In: 20th Annual Meeting of the European Association of Archaeologists str. 334-334Summary: During the late Pleistocene present day Eastern Adriatic coast was eastern ridge of the Great Adriatic Plain. It was dry area close to the mountain ridges of Dinara and Velebit with probably significant influence of the glaciation from the peaks. In that area so far we have established 3 niches which Neanderthals inhabited – present day Istria on the northern part and Ravni kotari and Kaštela area in Dalmatia. The latter two areas will be the subject of this presentation. There are several possible scenarios why Neanderthals chose these particular areas. Geographical and geological conditions were probably important factors because these areas represent large open flat spaces uncommon in the region, very abundant with the raw material. Proximity of Dinara and Velebit also encourages us to try to observe possible paths Neanderthals could have used to cross the mountains. We will present archaeological, zooarchaeological, palaeoecological and geological data and try to establish role that these small regions and their environmental and geological particularities could have played in the lives of late Neanderthals on the Eastern Adriatic Coast.
