Full-text available
In order to track diachronic changes in archaeological sequences, researchers typically partition time into stratigraphic layers defined during fieldwork, which serve as the framework for ensuing analyses. These analytical units have a significant impact on archaeological inference, defining its resolution, and influencing both the study of cultura...
Chapter
Archaeologies of Cultural Contact undertakes an exploration of cultural contact and cultural transfer, with a particular focus on the combination and modification of material and behavioural attributes under conditions of contact. From globalization and displacement to cultural legitimization and identity politics, the modern world is characterized...
Article
Full-text available
As micromammals are highly sensitive to changes in their habitat, variations in species representation are often used to reconstruct local environmental conditions. However, taphonomic aspects of micromammals are often overlooked, despite the fact that they can provide important information for our understanding of archaeological sites. La Roche-à-...
Chapter
The late Upper Palaeolithic is not well known in Alsace, while it is widely documented in neighbouring French, Swiss and German regions. This archaeological gap is in fact a barrier to understanding settlement dynamics in northwest Europe after the Last Glacial Maximum. The discovery and the excavation of the two late glacial sites at Morschwiller-...
Article
Full-text available
One of the challenges commonly faced by Paleolithic archaeologists is disentangling archaeological layers in caves and rockshelters that often reflect complex palimpests. Layers defined in the field are primarly used to distinguish occupations, yet their actual nature and integrity are rarely tested or justified after excavation. Distinct occupatio...
Article
Full-text available
Abstract The demise of Neanderthals and their interaction with dispersing anatomically modern human populations remain some of the most contentious issues in palaeoanthropology. The Châtelperronian, now generally recognized as the first genuine Upper Palaeolithic industry in Western Europe and commonly attributed to the Neanderthals, plays a pivota...
Technical Report
Full-text available
Achenheim, les restes de mammouths ainsi que l’ensemble des études publiées suggèrent que l’Alsace présente un fort potentiel pour l’étude du Paléolithique et du Mésolithique. Pour dégager une vision d’ensemble, il faut toutefois mieux comprendre les sites connus à partir d’un examen des indices de la Carte Archéologique Nationale et de la littérat...
Conference Paper
Presence of faecal remains in archaeological deposits is a robust indicator of animal presence at a site. However, explanations of the ecological dynamics between humans and animals living in cave habitats remain unclear. To adress this issue, here we present preliminary data of an ongoing multi-technique investigation designed to provide standards...
Article
Full-text available
The existence of a knapped stone industry using several volcanic and metamorphic rocks during the Late Neolithic south of the Upper Rhine plain (first half of the 4th millennium), in particular in Basse Alsace (Michelsberg and Munzingen cultures), has long been emphasized. Particular production was made of artefacts in pale hyperacidic rhyolite fou...
Chapter
Full-text available
Résumé : En Europe, les scénarios actuellement proposés pour expliquer les multiples changements qui accompagnent la disparition des formes néandertaliennes attribuent un rôle majeur aux fluctuations climatiques. Néanmoins, la chronologie des changements culturels et environnementaux est rarement maîtrisée dans ses détails. Nous proposons ici de te...
Article
Full-text available
Comparisons of lithic industries originating from a sample of sites in the Pyrenees and their Vasco-Cantabrian extension show the existence of different degrees of functional specialization, and that this specialization was more pronounced in Chatelperronian contexts than in Aurignacian ones. In the Chatelperronian, specialized sites where hunting...
Article
The recent resumption of excavations at Isturitz by one of us (Ch. N.) did not identify the Chatelperronian occupation (SIII base level) described by R. and S. de Saint-Perier in their work on this site. This chrono-cultural attribution was, moreover, sometimes disputed. Faced with this, a critical review of the lithic material from SIII base level...
Article
Full-text available
La reprise recente des fouilles a Isturitz par l’un d’entre nous (Ch. N.) n’a pas permis d’identifier l’occupation châtelperronienne (niveau SIII base) decrite par R. et S. de Saint-Perier lors de leurs travaux sur ce site, attribution chronoculturelle qui, par ailleurs, fut parfois contredite. Face a ce constat, une revision critique du materiel l...
Article
Full-text available
Fouillé par Jean Guichard en 1968 et 1969, le site de plein air de Canaule II (Creysse, Dordogne) présente un unique niveau archéologique attribué au Châtelperronien par la présence de pièces à dos caractéristiques. Ce gisement fut interprété comme étant un atelier de débitage, directement implanté sur les gîtes de silex maestrichtien du Bergeracoi...
