Additional Content

Details on discovery place In that part of the site, the layers 48 to 53 are difficult to distinguish, so, three layers have been described belonging to Riss III. S36 was found in a strongly cemented layer, containing small limestone elements embedded in a matrix of brown clay (Debénath, 1977), just under the upper stalagmitic horizon of several centimeters thick.
