The paper discusses the state-of-the-art of a chronology and a stratigraphy of the Late Glacial in the context of current analyses of dead-ice cores from Greenland and Antarctic, analyses of laminated lake and marine sediments, and dendrochronological and palaeobotanical research. The results obtained from Greenland ice cores directly influence archaeological studies on the Late Palaeolithic in Central European Lowlands. A complete sequence of climatic changes obtained from the analysis enables a more precise observation of cultural alteration in the context of dynamically changing climate conditions.
