The paleodetective of this film drive from Budapest to the Fundoklia valley. This valley cut through the Érd-limeston plateau the north-south direction. The northern side is wider, and there a few side valleys joins to it. This days the site is surrounded by old weekendhouses, but a 70 000 years ago the neanderthals hundted cave-bears here.
This site is really special, because there is no cave around. Our detective go after a lot of details, and it turns out that visited this place time to time. After examining the animal bones, we can say that this people cam only every early springs. In many bone fragments we you can find frost-marks.
If you look at the geographical context, it become clear that this place was an excellent hunting offside. The week bears awakening of winter slumber, marched down the valley from the Buda hills to the fertile plains of Duna river. The hunters could easily ambush the bears in this deep walley.
The bones show that they did this quite effectively, at the source was found bones in at least from 500 cave bears.This group of neanderthals were well organized , effective hunter team. Much of the stone tools made from raw material collected from the surrounding localities, and just kept it up to the local processing. The hunters disappeared just as fast as they came, but their trails where burried by loess whitch preserved them for us. Maybe they left thist region, meybe they extinct, or just moved south far from the aproaching ice.
