International Yearbook for Quaternary Research and Archaeology of the Stone Age
The society was founded in 1951 by Prof. Dr. Lothar F. Zotz as a non-commercial association. The society's task is to advance the interests of the Quaternary science with special focus on the research on Paleolithic man, his environment and cultures.
At the moment the society consists of ca. 250 single members and institutions coming from many countries in Europe and from different fields such as prehistory, geology, geography, palaeontology, palaeobotany, palaeoclimatology, anthropology and ethnology.
