Hunting camps from the terminal Preboreal in Bolków (West Pomerania)
Languages of publication
First publication of the results of archaeological exploration by the author in 2012–2013 at Bolków, a site on the banks of Lake Świdwie in West Pomerania. Lying under a peat layer in a zone on the shore of the old lake are the remains of two well preserved pole shelters with fireplaces in the middle. Both have been dated to the terminal Preboreal period, that is, 9300–9100 BP. Arti-facts from the shelters included objects made of stone, flint and organic materials. The assemblage encompassed diverse tools and an exceptionally abundant group of objects representing the spiritual sphere. The artifacts were discovered in a precisely defined cultural, chronological and functional context, set in a well identified natural environment. Hence their seldom matched research signifi-cance, giving grounds for a far-reaching reconstruction of the everyday life of Mesolithic hunters.
