The development of the economic activities inherent to the establishment of Neolithic farming activities entails an increasing technical specialization. This is often visible through the exploitation of specific resources, the development of suitable techniques for the manufacture of consumption goods as well as new ways of using and consuming them...

The multi-method study of a Pyrenean lithological tracer, the Montgaillard-Montsaunès chert type, is presented in this paper. These cherts outcrop in the northern Pyrenees, in three outcrops belonging to two Upper Cretaceous formations: the marly flysch cherts from the Campanian-Maastrichtian (Buala and Montsaunès outcrops) and the grey flysch cher...

This pioneering research performed at the Abri du Maras (Ardèche, South-East France) explores the potential of non-pollen palynomorphs (NPP) to provide new insights into the relationships between Neanderthals and plant resources. Remains of endophytic fungi found during the analysis are key indicators of the local presence of plants, which could ha...

RESUMEN En este trabajo presentamos los datos más relevantes obtenidos sobre el Paleolítico superior a lo largo del primer decenio del nuevo siglo por los distintos grupos de investigación que trabajan en Catalunya. Las novedades nacen por un lado de la continuación de los trabajos de excavación ya iniciados anterior-mente, y por otro lado, del des...
Article
Chert was one of the most used lithic raw materials by Palaeolithic groups to make their tools. Their char-acterisation is essential for determining their provenance and inferring mobility patterns and lithic procurement strategies. The Pyrenees-a mountain range traditionally viewed as a natural boundary between the Iberian Peninsula and the rest o...

El Abric del Xicotó y Les Auvelles son yacimientos inéditos situados en el extremo occidental de Cataluña (entre el Prepirineo y el llano). Los primeros datos disponibles indican para Xicotó un uso complejo del espacio (estructuras de combustión, agujeros de poste y fosas) durante una fase de cerámicas impresas no cardiales c. 5300-5000 cal BC, sig...

As part of a current archaeological project focusing on the Azraq Basin, through notably the excavation of the Early-Middle Epipalaeolithic site of Kharaneh IV, a geoarchaeological analysis was started to ultimately characterize the chert types exploited by the inhabitants of the site and to assess their geographical origins. In order to examine pr...

The open air site of Montlleó (Prats i Sansor, Lérida, Spain) was discovered in 1998 and has been excavated since 2000 by a multidisciplinary team from the SERP research group, University of Barcelona. The presence of lithic and bone industries, as well as shell ornaments, have shown the importance of the site for hunter-gatherer Magdalenian groups...
Conference Paper

In the wake of the discovery of numerous large blade workshops at Le Grand-Pressigny site (Indre-et-Loire, France), which initially aroused great interest, the mid-Loire Valley region became central to studies of flint diffusion. Despite the quality of the initial work, the widely shared view now is that the capacity for this concept to continue to...

Montlleó open-air site is located in the hearth of the Catalan Pyrenees, at 1040 m asl. The site, placed in one of the largest high-attitude valleys in the Pyrenees, the Cerdanya Valley, is a natural road to cross the Pyrenees in the Eastern part. The site was discovered in 1998 and has been annually excavated since 2000. Two different human occupa...

Au cours de ces dernières années un intense travail de terrain a été fait sur la Chaîne Pyrénéenne, avec le but de déterminer les gîtes à silex utilisés potentiellement par les groupes humains préhistoriques (Sánchez de la Torre, 2015). Dans le cadre de ces études, notre attention a été focalisée sur un type de silex qui semble avoir circulé sur qu...

The l’Hort de la Boquera site is located in the northeastern part of Iberia and its stone tool assemblage includes up to 25,000 flint artefacts. This is the first approach to the analysis of the raw material through an archaeopetrological study. Results were obtained by use of mineralogi¬cal techniques: macroscopic and petrographic analysis, Scanni...

(french version). Dans le sillage des découvertes d’ateliers de taille de grandes lames faites au Grand-Pressigny (Indre-et-Loire, France) qui suscitèrent alors un vif intérêt, la région Centre-Val de Loire est depuis longtemps au cœur de la réflexion sur la diffusion du silex. Malgré la qualité de ces travaux, le besoin de dépasser cet état de la...

We geochemically characterize two chert formations outcropping in the Pyrenees and presenting similar characteristics at the visual and microscopic scale: The Montgaillard flysch cherts and the Montsaunès cherts. Cherts presenting identical textural and micropalaeontological features as both types have been found in several Magdalenian Pyrenean sit...

Changes in colors on bones due to cremations may have different origins, such as the cremation during cooking, use as fuel, cremation in housekeeping of a home area or accidental burning. In order to discern the cremation types and the depositional processes of thermoaltered remains in hearths, we analyzed the taphonomic features of the faunal asse...

En prenant comme cadre géographique la chaîne pyrénéenne et plus précisément sa partie centre-orientale, nous présentons dans cet article les types de silex qui ont eu une grande diffusion le long du versant nord de la chaîne pyrénéenne pendant la période chronologique du Magdalénien. Ces silex peuvent être définis comme des traceurs lithologiques...

An assemblage of 500 (385 quartz and 115 chert) experimentally knapped artefacts, underwent human trampling over the course of two weeks by a team of 10-12 excavators wearing soft-soled shoes used while excavating in the rock shelter. Two zones of trampling were used: Zone 1, a high artefact density, low trampling intensity, and lower soil compacti...
