Allsworth-Jones, P., Borziac, I., Chetraru, N., French, C., Mihailescu, C., & Medyanik, S. (2018). The Middle Palaeolithic site of Buzdujeni in Moldova: establishing the archaeological and environmental record. Journal of Palaeolithic Archaeology.

The work carried out at the site of Buzdujeni in 1993, and the subsequent study of the material, is described. The archaeological inventory, classified as a Denticulate Mousterian, is published in detail for the first time. Sedimentological, micromorphological, and palynological studies have enabled a convincing reconstruction of the development of the environment through time to be achieved. The human occupation of the site took place in periglacial conditions, which likely correspond to the last (Valdai) glacial period, though more exact dating of the site remains to be achieved.
