Předmostí

 

a multilayered, loessial Upper Paleolithic settlement in the open air in Czechoslovakia, near Přerov (North Moravia). The main cultural layer measured up to 80 cm thick and contained many flint and bone tools and a huge accumulation of mammoth bones, the remains of at least 1,000 different mammoths. Works of art were also found and included a stylized depiction of a woman carved on a mammoth tusk, stylized bone figurines of mammoths and people, and geometric designs carved on bone. Also found in Předmosti was an oval-shaped grave with 20 human skeletons that are representative of a variation of the Cro-Magnon type.
