Diversification ou stabilité de la prédation au cours du Tardiglaciaire dans les Pyrénées françaises : et si on analysait les données ?

Abstract : Results of the analysis of 56 faunal assemblages from 21 Lateglacial and Postglacial archaeological sites are presented in this paper. The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis of hunting diversification at the end of the Lateglacial in the French Pyrenees. The analysis demonstrates that a major change in animal hunting occurs at 12300 uncal. BP when Reindeer was no longer hunted. It also indicates that the diversity of hunted large mammals was the same from the Oldest Dryas to the onset of the Holocene. Finally, it reveals that there is no significant increase in the proportion of small game between 15000 uncal. BP and 8000 uncal. BP, which demonstrates that there was no hunting diversification at the end of the Lateglacial. Studies focusing on the French Jura and the Northern Alps have provided similar results.
