Étude préliminaire des grands mammifères du repaire d'Hyènes de Redaka II (Bulgarie du Nord-Ouest) : Paléontologie, Paléoécologie et Taphonomie

Abstract : Preliminary study of large mammals on the discovery of hyena den in Redaka II (North-West of Bulgaria): Palaeontology, Palaeoecology and Taphonomy.
A preliminary paleontological, palaeoecological and taphonomical study of large mammals was undertaken on the first discovery of hyena den in Bulgaria: Redaka II (North of Bulgaria). The upper Pleistocene sequence could correspond to the end of the isotopic stage 3. The morphometric data of the large mammals were studied in a systematic way and allow on the base of the faunal spectrum, in comparison with other hyena den of Western Europe, a palaeoenvironenmental reconstitution; under relatively cold climate, associated to an open mixed vegetal cover, steppic and wooded. At the same time, taphonomical observations were made systematically on all remains. Natural, animal and anthropic traces on bones suggest discontinuing and different occupations of the den by the carnivores and human groups. The latter left artefacts correlated to the middle Palaeolithic and to the upper Palaeolithic.
