Description This paper presents preliminary evidence from new excavation at Pavlov I, a well-known Gravettian/Pavlovian site now prepared for the construction of a museum. In addition to the aims of large-scale preparatory and salvage excava-tions evoked by the construction, our focus was on more detailed stratigraphies of the cultural deposits and on spatial organisation of this extensive settlement. Obviously, Pavlov I has a longer prehistory (including early Gravettian and Early Upper Paleolithic layers in the subsoil) and a more complex spatial structure (including an adjacent mammoth bone deposit) than was previously thought. However processing and interpreting the associated paleobotanical, archaeozoological and archaeological material will be a long-term task.
