added by archaeologs Late glacial culture known from Poland at such sites as Calowanie and Swidry Wielkie. Elongated tanged points are typical of these sites, which have radiocarbon dates in the 10,000-8000 be range. The Swiderian is probably related to other tanged-point cultures of northern Europe known to exist at this time.
