LATE PALEOLITHIC MATERIALS FROM SITE 4 IN RUDNA WIELKA, SWILCZA COMMUNE, PODKARPACKIE VOIVODESHIP
The authors present the Late Paleolithic flint materials from private collection, discovered on the site 4 at Rudna Wielka, podkarpackie voivodeship and in particular the description, typology, cultural and chronological determination of the mentioned collection of flint artifacts. In appeared that in raw material structure predominate 3 kinds of flint: erratic and the Swieciechów flints and radiolarite. Flakes and semi-blades were struck of one-platform, or double-platform cores, using hard-hammer technique. Flint inventory consists of end-scrapers, burins, backed pieces and combined tools. Analyzed collection reminds mostly other inventories with backed pieces. It should be dated probably to the period between the mid of Alleröd and beginnings of Younger Dryas. In SE Poland only a few sites were recorded, which could be typologically dated to the Late Paleolithic. Analyzed collection has not accurate analogies. Perhaps new investigations in the neighbourhood of the discussed site will allow to make closer cultural and chronological determination of this type of flint assemblages.
