The Mesolithic at the Danube’s Iron Gates: new radiocarbon dates and old stratigraphies

Alexandru Dinu, Andrei Soficaru, Doru Miritoiu


In this paper we present 31 new AMS radiocarbon dates from the Mesolithic Iron Gates sites. The new dates allowed for a total reconsideration of the chronological sequences, and offer new insights for a reinterpretation of both Upper Paleolithic-Mesolithic and Mesolithic-Neolithic developments in the region.
