The Klissoura cave site (Argolid, Greece) is a multi–layered site with layers dating back to the Middle Palaeolithic. In the Aurignacian layer were found concave clay forms which are estimated, by C14 dates, to be 35–37.5 calibrated kyrs BP. In this study the author takes an experimental approach to investigate these important primitive features.
