An overview of the archaeological evidence from the Mesolithic site of Icoana in the Iron Gates gorge is presented, with emphasis on the human burials. The chronological implications of a new series of AMS 14C dates on red deer antler and human bone are discussed, and the burial evidence is compared with that from other Mesolithic sites in the region.
