Dating of the Upper Pleistocene Lithic Industry of SardiniaHofmeijer, G. Klein; Alderliesten, C.; van der Borg, Klaas; Houston, C. M.; De Jong, A. F. M.; Martini, F.; Sauges, M.; Sondaar, P. Y.; De Visser, J. A. (Department of Geosciences, The University of Arizona, 1989-01-01)During an excavation of 1986 and 1987, a joint team from Utrecht, Siena and the Soprintendenza di Sassari a Nuoro, found a pre-Neolithic lithic industry in Corbeddu Cave, Oliena, Sardinia, which was dated to 8000-17,000 BP. The artifact typology is different from that of the mainland of the same period. The lithic and bone artifacts suggest an endemic isolated economy of the Upper Pleistocene in Sardinia.
