The Aurignacian in Hungary is characterized by abundant bone points. “Classic” Aurignacian stone tool types such as nosed and carinated endscrapers are not well- represented in these assemblages. Recently, two Aurignacian sites with high frequencies of these endscrapers were found near Nagyréde, in the area of Mátra Mountains in northeast Hungary. The stone tool kit composition of these sites signifies a typologically diverse and unique Aurignacian appearance in Hungary.
