In the latest years archaeologists in Lithuania have come back to the research of the prehistoric Swiderian sites along the river Neris. New data from the excavations in Pabartoniai site was put in correlation with the revised data of the most famous surface find collections from the prehistoric Swiderian sites well known in archaeological literature of the 20th century. One of the main questions taken into consideration was the dating of the last Swiderians in the region, though the unfavorable circumstances – sandy type of settlements, lack of organic material and mixed multilayered stratigraphy – have made the investigation very difficult. Nevertheless, some insights about the way Swiderian inhabitants have lived in the river Neris Basin can be done. They broaden and at the same time adjust the previously formed vision of the last Final Palaeolithic–Early Mesolithic human behaviour in Lithuanian territory.
