    ABSTRACT: This paper deals with a geoarchaeological study developed at the Epigravettian settlement of Mezhyrich (Ukraine) in the frame of the French ANR project "Manzmouths". Based on a microstratigraphic analysis of a complex loess sequence, this approach has provided a large set of complementary data focusing on archaeology, environment and chronology, which document the activities of the Epigravettian hunters at the site between ca 18,300 and 17,400 before present, during a cold period characterized by strong climatic and environmental contrast.

    ABSTRACT: In France and in Spain, shelters painted by the end of the Neolithic are chosen by the men according to four recurring criteria: their Southern orientation, the red color of their walls, their dominant and locatable position and the periodic flows of the water on and near the site. This fourth parameter, called hygrophilia, is analyzed here further to numerous new discoveries of sites with schematic paintings. The revealing of these very diversified flows of water gives evidence of a fine observation of places by men who selected them. Sometimes, the criterion of the hygrophilia was used in the limits of the meaning of this term. Sometimes also, the men added painted or engraved elements to patent these flows: concretions painted in red, lines painted on or against these concretions, drains and cupules engraved to channel and get back the water. The natural potentialities of sites regarding limited flows of the water are transformed into cultural criteria on a local or micro-regional scale.

    ABSTRACT: It is generally accepted that the metal appeared in Morocco under Iberian influence during the second millennium BC (3800–3200 BP). On the base of three main types of “peltiforme” axes represented in rock engravings, we assume the existence of an endogenous and independent invention of metallurgy in southern Morocco. Initially, we will discuss the chronological implications of this proposal, which will be then confronted with historical and ethnological data. Several factors support the hypothesis that a black population of nomadic hunters was established on the north bank of the Moroccan Sahara. This population probably assimilated by paléoberbère society from the late Neolithic would be the inventor of the “Metgourine” axe and Metallurgy. Such a hypothesis is supported by a set of arguments from various disciplinary fields.

    ABSTRACT: The mammoth steppe ecosystem was characterized by a high diversity in large mammals species distributed on a vast geographical range. The isotopic analyses of the collagen of the faunal remains from this context testified the niche partitioning among large herbivores with a specialization in the types of consumed plants. In the case of the mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius), systematic higher abundances in 15N are found for this species compared to those of other grazers in Eurasia and Alaska during the Upper Palaeolithic. This distinct isotopic signature reflects a specific ecological niche. The analyses of mammoth remains at the Epigravettian site of Mezhyrich (15,000–14,300 conv BP) reveal low abundances in 15N that are equivalent to those of the associated horses. Thus, the mammoth of Mezhyrich experienced a significant change in their environment and diet that probably led to the loss of their ecological niche. A likely direct competition with other large herbivores and the possible predation by wolves and human populations should be considered for the mammoth of the Ukrainian plains, long before their extirpation from the region.

    ABSTRACT: Buran-Kaya III (Crimea, Ukraine) is a unique site, with a stratigraphy from Middle to Final Palaeolithic. The Gravettian layers 5-2, 6-1 and 6-2 of this site yielded numerous lithic and bone industries, ornaments from marine and freshwater shells, mammal teeth and mammoth ivory, human fossils and abundant faunal remains. Аccording to the stylistic indications of the lithic and bone inventories, the settlements of layers 5-2, 6-1 and 6-2 of Buran-Kaya III represent local variants of the Gravettian in Crimea and in mainland Ukraine and, therefore, the existence of separately social communities. Conversely, ornament objects and human remains (with specific mortuary practices) of Buran-Kaya III may suggest extensive social contacts of its Gravettian inhabitants with other human populations from mainland Ukraine. These hypotheses make necessary future investigations about the social organisation of the Epigravettian societies in Eastern Europe.

    ABSTRACT: The rockshelter of Buran-Kaya III (Crimea), found in 1990 by A. Yanevich, presents an exceptional stratigraphic sequence ranging from the Middle Palaeolithic to the Neolithic. The cultural layers yielded abundant assemblages of lithic and bone industries, personal adornments and mobiliary art, several ones made of mammoth ivory. We present here the results of zooarchaeological analyses of the large mammal remains from layers 6-2, 6-1 and 5-2, attributed to Gravettian sensu lato, and their interpretation in terms of subsistence behaviours, by comparing the three assemblages. The faunal composition of the three layers is rather homogeneous. The site settlements seem mainly related to the acquisition and treatment activities of small and middle-sized mammals, especially saiga antelope in summer, and large-sized mammals, in winter in 6-1 and maybe also in 5-2. During Gravettian, Buran-Kaya III was repeatedly used as a butchery or short-termed camp-site, probably in summer for hunts of saiga antelope.
