Authors represent new paleoecological and sedimentologicalresults of the famous Paleolithic site of Ságvár, Hungary. Simple (abundance and dominance) and advanced (cluster analysis, PCA, correspondence) statistical analyses of malacological results were carried out determining 8 malacological zones (MZs) and thekey species of the fauna evolution in the sequence. Furthermore, age-depth models were calculated using new radiocarbon age data. Accumulation rates (AR) were further derived from the age-depth models. The paleoecological reconstruction yielded a cool to cold climate and chiefly steppe environment, which indicated low AR. Not only the vegetation cover but also the geographical setting of the sequence could have favored the low AR values. The settled Gravettian hunters around 22,000 yr cal BP lived in a progressively warming wooded-steppe environment hunting mainly for reindeer. The climate change forced them to migrate away, following the reindeers.
