Lithic assemblages from two main occupational phases of the Kraków-Spadzista B+B 1 are discussed in this paper, including assemblages from the Gravettian layer 6 and the Epigravettian layer 5. Assemblages from layer 6 represent a number of consecutive occupational episodes, subsequently reworked by solifluction. Consequently, the two main activities: butchering and production of lithic tools are mixed up in the cantent of layer 6. Limited number of refits from this layer confirms the horizontal and vertical displacement of the whole lithic and bone material, making impossible the reconstruction of particular occupational and functional episodes. During the formation of layer 5, the site was not functionally related to mammoth hunting and butchering, but focused on exploitation and processing of local flint. Numerous technological refits indicate that the on-site lithic production included not only blades, but also pre-cores and cores.
