Amvrosiivka archeological site [Амвросівська стоянка; Amvrosivska stoianka]. A late Paleolithic site discovered in 1935 near Amvrosiivka in Donetsk oblast. Excavations in the 1940s uncovered a thick layer of bones of about 1,000 bison that had been stampeded over a precipice by hunters. Spearheads and other flint and bone implements were also found. The discovery showed that collective hunting on a large scale occurred in the late Paleolithic Period.
