Southwestern Germany with its research tradition extending back to the 1860s is often viewed as one of the best studied regions of the European Magdalenian. Recent work by Taller, Conard and colleagues has led to major publications on the Magdalenian horizons at Hohle Fels in the Ach Valley that provide an up-to-date assessment of the Magdalenian of the region. Additionally, a team from the University of Tübingen has discovered a new Magdalenian rock shelter at Langmahdhalde in the Lone Valley north of Ulm. We conducted excavations at the site in 2016 and 2017, and additional field seasons are planned. Langmahdhalde preserves at least three combustion features, abundant lithic artifacts, a rich assemblage of microvertebrates and a modest assemblage of macrofauna including organic artifacts. This paper presents the state of our ongoing research on the site and points to the its great potential for advancing our knowledge of the Magdalenian of southwestern Germany.
