A long discussion regarding the chronology of the Petralona cave findings (fauna and flora fossils, artefacts, human remains etc.) is ongoing, since the skull of a prehistoric man was found there 46 years ago. Both relative and absolute datings have being controversial amongst the various scientific publications. The relative chronologies however provided a clearer picture, that of Early-Middle Pleistocene (0,50-0,8 m.y.a.). The absolute datings, such as palaeomag, aminoacids, ESR, U/Th, TL etc, led to several measurable results, which are not always concordant. A synthesis of the up today efforts and an attempt of interpreting the contradictory results are presented in this article.
