Plant material from the Klissoura Cave 1 in Greece

Maria Litynska-Zajac Eurasian Prehistory 7:2 (2010): 87-90.


This paper presents the results of the investigation of the macroscopic plant remains (seeds and fruit) from the Upper Palaeolithic deposits at Klissoura Cave 1. A total of 115 samples were examined. Seeds and fruit were presents in 37 samples. The quantitative and qualitative composition of individual samples, preserved on the site, is very poor. For the entire sequence of layers we determined sixteen taxons of plants (Table 1). All seeds and fruits, excluding one seed of Arenaria serpylifolia, are uncharred. A small number of diasporas are of uncertain origin and without a clear chronological position thus does not allow further characterization of the different cultural levels.
