The absence of knowledge of prehistoric man in the Balkans is aciually due to the lack of prehistoric research within this area. Information on the Palaeolithic of the Balkan countries started to become available only in recent years. Data concerning the Lower Palaeolithic are very scarce and sites known from this period are not numerous. The only excavated sites which date to the earlier parts of the Middle Pleistocene are the caves of Yarimburgaz (Turkey), Petralona (Greece), Gajtan (Albania) and Sandalja (Croatia).
