Abstract (in english)
   Trencianske Bohuslavice-Pod Tureckom is an open-air Gravettian site situated in the middle course of the Váh River, in the area with abundant Upper Palaeolithic settlement. A revisory research had an interdisciplinary character, including detailed sedimentological, stable isotope, seasonality, fired clay pellets, lithic raw materials, pollen and malacofaunal analyses. Three Gravettian occupational levels in superposition were discovered at depths of 25-35 cm (layer I e ~27 ka), 55-75 cm (layer II ~28 ka) and of 85-125 cm (layer III ~29.5 ka). The results of most analyses were similar to those obtained from other Gravettian sites in the Middle Danube region. The analyses of sediment and malacofauna indicated cooling in the studied time intervals, Stable isotope analyses indicated the mosaic character of the Gravettian palaeoenvironment. Floral and faunal analyses agreed well with the dates of all three cultural layers, which represent rather colder stadial than warmer interstadial condi
