The volume presents the first overview of the pre-Neolithic finds from South Bohemia. The catalogue of finds (S. Vencl, J. Michálek, J. Fröhlich) includes about 700 site records. The prevalence of acid soils, negligible quaternary sedimentation as well as intensive denudation resulted in the limited preservation of the primary contexts. Partly preserved were only some of the sites within the time span from the Magdalenian up to the Mesolithic. Attached are analyses by I. Horáček – P. Pokorný (Environmental background for the oldest settlement in South Bohemia), and A. Přichystal (Lithic raw materials of pre-Neolithic settlement in South Bohemia).
