This interstadial period of soil formation has been correlated with the Paudorf or Stillfried B period of Western Europe (Dolukhanov and Pashkervich 1977; Gerasimov 1973; Velichko 1973, 1982a). Fink (1969), however, warns that it is preferable to use the term "Stillfried B" for the correlate, as the Paudorf soil is not synchronized all over Europe, and this presents a confusing picture for correlation. Austrian Stillfried B is firmly dated to 28,120 ± 200 (Gro. P. (Gro. 2523). This same soil layer appears in many stratigraphie sequences of Eastern and Western Europe, and it is thus classified under different terms, ranging from the PKI soil of Czechoslovakia to Paudorf to Mende F in Hungary.

In my analyses and interpretations of the data from the study area I give no preference to either one of these two components and argue that both were crucial in shaping Upper Paleolithic adaptations on the central Russian Plain. METHODOLOGY To some extent this work can be seen as an exercise in remedial archaeology. The data were collected through (1) archival and library research and (2), when possible, an examination of archaeological and paleontological collections in the pertinent libraries, museums, and institutes in the USSR.
