Le Magdalénien de la grotte des Scilles (Lespugue, Haute-Garonne). Premiers résultats de l'étude pluridisciplinaire de la collection Saint-Périer.

Abstract : The re-examination of the archeological material from the grotte des Scilles (Lespugue, Haute-Garonne; Saint-Périer excavations) led to its characterization as a very original assemblage within the context of the Pyrenean Magdalenian. This article presents the different artefact types – lithic and osseous tools, faunal remains, personal ornaments and one sandstone lamp – in order to understand the living habits of the hunter-gatherers who occupied the site. We first give a brief description of the site, located at the junction of the Aquitaine plain and the Pyrenees mountains, and of the 85-year-old excavations. The first results of the analysis are then presented along with comparisons at the larger regional scale. These elements allow us to characterize the assemblage as belonging to the Lower Magdalenian, an archeological phase previously unknown in the Pyrenees.
