Balma Guilanyà is a rock-shelter located more than 1,150 metres asl, in the South-Eastern Pre-Pyrenees of Lleida. The test pit carried out during the summer of 2008 yielded the archaeological levels K and EJ, which can be correlated with the Bolling/Allerod climatic amelioration. In this paper, new 14C AMS dates are presented and contextualised within the sequence of the Late Glacial in the South-Eastern Pyrenees. Preliminary results also permit the identification of techno-typological characteristics of the Azilian, a chrono-cultural tradition poorly known in the North-East of the Iberian Peninsula.
