Les industries lithiques d’âge éemien du site de Caours (Somme)

Abstract : The discovery of the Middle Paleolithic deposit of Caours in 2003 completely changed the understanding of settlement systems in Northern Europe during the Pleistocene and demonstrated that Neanderthals was also adapted to an interglacial environment. It is a butchery site, intended for the cutting of game. The lithic production intended for this activity was carried out through several methods: Discoid, unipolar and perhaps Levallois for immediate use.
