Ořechov IV is a Bohunician site in the Bobrava Upland, approximately 7 km south-west of Bohunice and outside of the Brno Basin. It was known as a surface site ever since the first artefacts were discovered there at the beginning of the 20th century. Two locations with stratified cultural contexts were discovered recently. This site was probably visited by Paleolithic people on different occasions throughout the Upper Paleolithic period resulting in a palimpsest. Preliminary analyses suggest the presence of a Late Bohunician industry that can be differentiated chronologically and technologically from the Bohunician occupation at Bohunice and Stránská Skála.
