Neushoornvondsten uit de groeve Maastricht-Belvédère
Cranium , Volume 6 - Issue 2 p. 33- 43
The sand- and gravelpit Maastricht-Belvédère is one of the richest localities of rhinoceros fossils in the Netherlands. Different levels, exposed in the pit, have yielded material. Coelodonta antiquitatis remains are collected from the top of the lowermost gravels and from the upperpart of the section (site E) dating from the Early Saalian and Early Weichselian respectively. Many Dicerorhinus hemitoechus fossils are recorded from the terrace sands on top of the gravels. Very spectaular is the discovery of a complete skeleton of a D. hemitoechus. Milkmolars of the same species are found in relation with paleolithic artefacts.
