Une préhampe magdalénienne en bois de renne aux Petits Guinards (Allier, France)

Abstract : A reindeer antler foreshaft from the Magdalenian site of the 'Petits Guinards' (Allier, France). The site of the 'Petits Guinards' in Creuzier-le-Vieux (Allier, France) yielded an important assemblage, at the scale of the Massif central, of bone industry. Among the different technical and functional categories represented, a fragment of reindeer antler is interpreted as the foreshaft of a projectile. This exceptional artefact was made out of the site where it had been left. The radiocarbon date of this foreshaft confirms the presence of human groups in the north of Massif central at the start of the Lower Dryas
