Popular Paleolithic: Is there anything new for the interested German speaking public?

Books about Prehistory written in German for an interested non-professional public are notorious rare. Some days ago one important overview about Paleolithic Archeology (mainly of Middle Europe) was published, that is recommended to everyone interested in this issue.

Jürgen Richter Altsteinzeit: Der Weg der frühen Menschen von Afrika bis in die Mitte Europas

After six caves holding the oldest figurative artworks made by humans  in the Swabian Alp region have  declared a UNESCO World Heritage site there are some excellent publications about the Paleolithic of this region, published by the Conard Group:

Eiszeitarchäologie auf der Schwäbischen Alb: Die Fundstellen im Ach- und Lonetal und in ihrer Umgebung (Tübingen Publications in Prehistory)

and for advanced readers:

Harald Meller (Herausgeber),‎ Dietrich Mania et al. Bilzingsleben VII: Homo erectus – seine Kultur und Umwelt: Befund und Silexartefakte der mittelpleistozänen Fundstelle (Veröffentlichungen des Landesamtes  für Vorgeschichte Sachsen-Anhalt)

 Enjoy!
