I am very curious if anyone would know the distribution of
burials in rock shelters in Europe prior to the last ice age. By
distribution, I mean where in a shelter burials were most likely
to be placed(the mouth of the cave or shelter vs. more
inaccessible places). Also of interest is whether individuals
of unusual age (40+) were more common then younger individuals,
in other words, of the hundreds(thousands?) of individuals that
may have inhabited a rock shelter over thousands of years, is
there any pattern to the few people whose remains have been found
in such places?

Thanks, Mark Lytle, Houston
