Introduction
I work in the "Natural History of Prehistoric Man" laboratory at the University of Perpignan Via Domitia. I am an archaeopalynologist and I am also interested in palaeoparasitology, in karstic infillings and in coprolites, in archaeological context. I work on the composition of plant landscapes and behavior of Pleistocene predators (humans and carnivora) with the study of pollens, non-pollen palynomorphs (eggs of endoparasitic worms, fungal spores, etc.) and their taphonomy.

Article
Objective This study aims to (i) analyse whether speleothems may contain fossil parasitic worm eggs and, if so, (ii) identify the pathogens involved, and (iii) place them in geological, palaeontological, and chronological contexts to know the zoonoses that could affect human and animal populations during the Middle Pleistocene. Materials A sample...

This note is a reply to the comment “Did the first inhabitants of the Caune de l’Arago between 700,000 and 400,000 years BP have domesticated fire? Did they know how to light the fire at will?”, about the article “Search for early traces of fire in the Caune de l’Arago at Tautavel (Eastern Pyrenees, France), combining magnetic susceptibility measur...

SCHOPPER ANR project aim to develop a method to test research hypotheses using Machine Learning and immersives virtual environments. After 54 years of excavations, the Caune de l’Arago cave delivers a large amount of raw data and many archaeometric databases were developed through the study of this Lower Paleolithic site. The current tests focused...

The Caune de l'Arago is an important Middle Pleistocene archaeological site, consisting of a cave with a sedimentary infilling deposited between 700 and 100 ka. Excavations have revealed traces of the use of fire in the layers formed between 400 and 100 ka, but no earlier traces have been recorded in the underlying levels. These potential older tra...

Mobile devices for on-field DNA analysis have been used for medical diagnostics at the point-of-care, forensic investigations and environmental surveys, but still have to be validated for ancient DNA studies. We report here on a mobile laboratory that we setup using commercially available devices, including a compact real-time PCR machine, and desc...

La grotte des Ramandils (Port-La-Nouvelle, Aude, France) abrite plusieurs niveaux d'occupation du Paléolithique moyen, sur le littoral Nord-méditerranéen. Les recherches menées sur ce site ont montré un fort potentiel d'étude. L'importance des éléments fauniques et les nombreuses pièces lithiques, caractéristiques d’un Moustérien typique, attestent...
Article

Excavations at the Ramandils site have yielded abundant faunal remains associated with a Mousterian industry, but the infilling was not favorable to pollen analysis. The discovery of numerous coprolites offers the opportunity to carry out a new pollen analysis to obtain data on the composition of the plant landscape, visited by the predators (carni...

Les fouilles du site des Ramandils ont livré une faune abondante associée à une industrie moustérienne, mais le remplissage sédimentaire n’a pas été favorable aux analyses polliniques. La découverte de nombreux coprolithes offre l’opportunité de réaliser une nouvelle analyse pollinique pour obtenir des données sur la composition du paysage végétal,...

La Caune de l’Arago renferme plusieurs dizaines d’unités archéostratigraphiques riches en matériel d’origine anthropique. La subdivision des niveaux, bien que perfectible par nature, montre une variété importante qui révèle la diversité des comportements techniques et de subsistance au cours du temps.

Le remplissage du site moustérien des Ramandils (Port-la-Nouvelle, France), d’une puissance de 5 mètres, se compose d’une succession de dépôts continentaux, surmontant un niveau marin. Les premières analyses polliniques, menées sur l’ensemble du remplissage, ont apporté des résultats ponctuels, indiquant néanmoins une alternance de paysages ouverts...

The preservation of palaeoenvironmental and archeological records in cave and rock shelter contexts is often called into question for Pleistocene sequences. Records are always fragmentary and the preservation of sediments and archaeological remains is partial and differential, according to site history. The karst deposits are often frequently descr...
Article
New investigations conducted in 2008 at Ranc-Pointu No. 2, a small cave located along the Ardèche River, led to the complete revision of the infilling and assemblages, confirming at least one human occupation in this small cave. There may have been two periods of occupation, but only the main one located at the top of the sequence (level ‘c’) has b...

The new fieldworks conducted in the three chambers at the Figuier Cave (Ardèche) attest a common deposit inside the karstic system and allow us to precise the type of human occupation. Middle Palaeolithic occupations took place in the chambers 3 and 2, as well as in the main chamber 1. Humans could reach these chambers either through the main chamb...

Recent excavations conducted in the three chambers of Grotte du Figuier (Ardèche) attest to a common deposit within the whole karstic system and allow us to specify the types of human occupation. Middle Palaeolithic occupations took place in chambers 3 and 2, as well as in the main chamber, 1. Humans could reach these chambers either through the ma...

Article
The Baume Flandin, located in the Middle Rhone valley, yielded in the 1950s an archaeological level attributed to the Middle Palaeolithic, with abundant elongated flakes. This feature is rare in southern Europe before MIS 4. The cave was totally excavated and little evidence existed to confirm the date of this level, which was attributed to the ‘Ri...

Pollen analysis on speleothems carry out detailed vegetal environment data in archaeological context. Pollen rain recorded in calcite is subject to a variety of taphonomic processes, pointing out limits and potentials of pollen analyses on speleothems. These records are evaluated in the light of multidisciplinary palaeoecological information from N...

After a preliminary study of the travertine outcrop of Irdi (Errachidia province), this site was drilled and the survey was extended to other exposures in Morocco. Complementary methods of investigation were used (palynology, paleomagnetism) together with U-series analyses in order to identify the successive deposition phases and to precise the ass...

L’objectif du projet est de tester des hypothèses de comportements humains au Paléolithique à partir d’une solution technologique innovante, un simulateur couplant un moteur d’Intelligence Artificielle et un système immersif restituant leur environnement. La Caune de l’Arago à Tautavel dans le Sud de la France, gisement du Paléolithique inferieur d’intérêt mondial, est le site pilote de ce projet. Le projet SCHOPPER regroupe 4 partenaires autour de la création et de l’utilisation de ce simulateur.
Project
Through the study of the organic components of the palynofacies of coprolites (discovered in Acheulean and Mousterian sites in the south of France), it is possible to reconstruct the behavior of Pleistocene predators in their hunting territory.
Project
this study is carried out on middle and upper Pleistocene archaeological sites in order to determine the behavior of predators in their environment.
