 Magdalenien2003, résumé Miguel Ángel FANO MARTÍNEZ
During the 80's a trench dug by speleologists to penetrate the inner part of Horno cave disturbed the archaeological deposit, leading to the discovery of a typical flat-section, bilaterally barbed Azilian harpoon.
The disturbed nature of this layer is suggested by the association of handmade prehistoric ceramic shards with a large number of stone tools which may be attributed to the late Magdalenian and to the Azilian (small endscrapers, including circular and thumbnail types, and backed bladelets).
Probably this uppermost disturbed layer originally included late Magdalenian, Azilian and ceramic occupations, thought it is not possible to distinguish different archaeological layers in this part of the deposit, at least where the test pit has been done.

 EUROPEAN RACES IN HISTORY - Part 2, Chapter 2
The question of their knowledge of the principle of the bow and arrow during the Aurignacian and Solutrean is an open one, but there are definite indications of the use of the arrow, or at least the barbed dart, in early Magdalenian times, and this weapon was well known in the succeeding Azilian Period.

 Eternal Physical Life - Flood 1:7
It seems probable that the bulk of its inhabitants deserted it, and this seems to be borne out by the character of the race it once more cast up on European soil as a fresh human wave in Azilian times, for the Azilian civilisation shows in some ways a marked inferiority to the Aurignacian.
"It would seem, indeed, from the human relics of the Azilian period, as if Atlantis must, in the interval between the Aulrignacian and Azilian immigrations, have been invaded or colonised itself, and the general osteological character of Azilian remains leads to the surmise that this race may have had an African origin.
