Summary/Abstract: Previous studies of the Mitoc-Valea Izvorului site (Prut Valley, Romania) have suggested the presence of a transitional industry between Middle and Upper Palaeolithic. During recent excavations (2003-2004), new chrono-stratigraphical investigations together with OSL sediment dating have demonstrated the presence of Middle Palaeolithic artefacts and Upper Palaeolithic artefacts within distinct stratigraphical units. Stratigraphical correlations have been made with the nearby Malu Galben site including Aurignacian and Gravettian.
