Abstract:Slovene Palaeolithic archaeology has all the elements of a successful nationalistic story; it has a clear and uncontested, even heroic beginning, represented by S. Brodar's discovery of the bones in Potočka zijalka. Therewith, or to be exact, with the start of his excavations, began the national scientific research of the Palaeolithic period in Slovenia. The institutional foundations were laid in the first years after World War II, when several pioneers of Slovene archaeology joined forces and established the research infrastructure still in operation today. Archaeology and Palaeolithic archaeology were to become antagonists, since one became affiliated with the humanities and the other with natural sciences. Observing the activities of the first three decades after 1945, we can see that researchers excavated test trenches in many caves and rock shelters in their attempts to discover new Palaeolithic sites, and in many of them they came across finds from later archaeological periods. Unfortunately, subsequent reports of these excavations only dealt with the Palaeolithic finds, a sad fact and probably a reflection of a conceptual divide in archaeology. Since the 1980s the situation changed due to a conceptual transformation reaching its peak with the discovery of the Divje babe I bone artefact, changing the international position of Slovene archaeology
