Abstract

Boegoeberg 1 (BOG 1) is located on the Atlantic coast of South Africa, 850 km north of Cape Town. Abundant coprolites, chewed bones, and partially digested bones implicate hyenas as the bone accumulators. Radiocarbon dates place the site before 37,000 C 14 yr ago, while the large average size of the black-backed jackals and the presence of extralimital ungulates imply cool, moist conditions, probably during the early part of the last glaciation, or perhaps during one of the cooler phases within the last interglaciation. It is the paleoenvironmental and human behavioral implications of the BOG1 fauna that the AA. stress here
