Ten radiocarbon datings of landslides of the Jaworzyna Krynicka Range, were performed to establish the date o f their formation or rejuvenation. These datings widen the documentation of the landslide phases connected with humid periods o f the Holocene. Several dates correspond to landslide phases and prove that the landslides were formed at the beginning o f the Atlantic Phase, termination o f the Subboreal Phase, in the Middle Ages and at the beginning of the Little Ice Age. A landslide phase of mass movement intensification connected with a humid phase at the beginning o f the Subboreal Phase is based on two radiocarbon datings. Five radiocarbon dates confirm the relationship between mass movement intensification and a humid phase distinguished at early Subatlantic Phase.
