Although the Late Palaeolithic has not been the object of concentrated research, its temporal position and general typological characteristics have been clearly documented in several stratified caves and rocksheiter sites in the Swabian Alb. It overlies Magdalenian deposits in at least three sites—Zigeunerfels, Dietfurt, and Helga-Abri—and underlies Early Mesolithic levels at these same sites as well as in two additional sites—Jägerhaushöhle and Fohlenhaus. It also occurs stratified beneath Early Mesolithic deposits at the open-air site of Henauhof Nordwest on the Federsee. It dates to the periods of the Alleröd and Younger Dryas, approximately 11,800–10,300 b.p.
