Abstract:
This contribution presents new results on lithic raw material distribution and procurement
patterns in the Gravettian of southwestern Germany, with a special emphasis on the cave site of Hohle Fels
situated in the Ach Valley near Schelklingen (Swabian Jura). The analysis of lithic raw material acquisition
is based on a detailed study of the regional geological background and the natural distribution and
characteristics of the different types of raw materials. In this context the important studies of W. Burkert,
C. Pasda, J. Hahn, and others should be emphasized. The most important varieties of raw materials in
southwestern Germany are different types of Jurassic chert including Bavarian tabular chert and 'Bohnerzhornstein'
from the Upper Rhine Valley. Other important raw materials are radiolarite, tertiary chert from
Randecker Maar and alpine quartzites. In comparison with the Aurignacian record of the region, Gravettian
raw materials for the first time indicate a high degree of long distance raw material transport. The
most important axis of long distance raw material transport is oriented along the Danube River from the
Black Forest in the West to the Altmühl area in Bavaria in the East. In comparison, contacts to the North
and to the South are rare. Besides the identification of raw material origins and the question of mobility
and supra-regional contacts, our contribution aims to point out the specific relation between the composition
of lithic assemblages and the distances to their raw material sources.
