From about 32 ky a to 22 kya, Gravettian culture prevailed in Europe.� That culture produced the first ceramics and art such as the Venus of Willendorf. �By 2 0 kya, pottery appeared in China .� But as far as human expansion is concerned, the Gravettian (and related Pavlovian cultures) are most notorious as mammoth hunters extraordinaire for those that lived on the mammoth steppe near the ice sheets.� To revisit proboscideans, they could not swim to Sahul, but flourished everywhere else they could get to.� At more than 10 million calories per carcass, they were the ultimate hunter-gatherer kill.� Also, near the ice sheets, meat could be stored in the ground.� Cro-Magnons did just that, and that �freezer� full of meat led to the first seasonally sedentary humans.� It long predated the Domestication Revolution when people could be sedentary year-round, but while the megafauna lasted, the first signs of what came later appeared as Cro-Magnons created villages around frozen mammoth meat.� G ravettians hunted along migration routes and set traps and ambushes for mammoths. [566] � For thousands of years, mammoths were the primary focus of Gravettian hunters, and many scientists believe that humans at least helped drive European mammoths to extinction .� G ravettians probably used the bow and arrow, and using poisoned arrows on mammoths would have been child�s play, not a hazardous undertaking.� They also tended to focus on the easy meat: the young, relatively defenseless, tender mammoths.� Killing the offspring alone would have driven the slowly reproducing mammoths to extinction, and as the interglacial period began around 15 kya, there would have been new pressures on mammoths.� One of them was that fewer mammoths meant that they were not terraforming their environments like they used to, and the warming climate probably reduced their range.� For a mammoth facing humans, there was literally no place to hide (except maybe in the living room), and there is little reason to think that hunters would have eased up when mammoth numbers dwindled.� If anything, their efforts would have increased to get the last ones, as they competed and fought over the final mammoths.� In one lifetime or even several, the changes would have been barely noticeable, if at all.� There was simply no way out for mammoths, and they went extinct south of the European ice sheets under the ministrations of Cro-Magnon hunters.� Mo re evidence of their fate is some mammoths surviving in refugia: islands where humans did not arrive until thousands of years later.� Island-dwarfed mammoths survived on St.
