Example text

Rocks are in black. Isernia La Pineta (Molise) Isernia La Pineta is located further south, more or less in the center of the peninsula (Bahain 1993; Coltorti et a l . 1982; Cremaschi and Peretto 1988a; Giusberti and Peretto 1991; Peretto 1991, 1994; Peretto et al. 1983). So far, approximately 300 m2 have been excavated and four archaeological layers investigated. These are believed to be close in time to each other. Excavations were first undertaken in two different but nearby areas (called settori, or sectors).

Cervids, such as Cervus elaphus acoronatus, a fallow deer, and megacerids, were also found. There were different species of equids, while the wild boar (Sus scrofa) and a Macaca are also mentioned. Carnivores included canids-already found in the Lower Pleistocene, Ursus deningeri, which had evolved locally, and some hyenas, lions, and leopards. The faunal assemblages through time became increasingly similar to the ones we see today in African savannahs (Sala 1977). To get the picture, we have only to substitute antelope and gazelle with deer, zebra with horse and donkey, warthog with wild boar, and jackal with wolf.

1991): the dates cluster into two different intervals, at 455 ± 90 ka and at 200 ± 40 ka, respectively. Both the tiny E. falconeri and the larger E. mnaidriensis are found in the earlier interval, while only the second one is in the later interval. It is now assumed that the two dwarf species are not in any phyletic relation, and that the so-called E. mnaidriensis of the later interval is possibly a still different species, relating to a new immigration of elephants. The species from which E. falconeri derived is consequently unknown, and it cannot be ruled out that a reconsideration of the problem, as well as the study of new and unpublished faunas, could lead to a new interest for African connections (T.
