Nouvelles données sur la séquence aurignacienne de la grotte d'Isturitz (commune d'Isturitz et de Saint-Martin-d'Arberoue ; Pyrénées-Atlantiques)

Abstract : Isturitz Cave is located in the western Pyrenees in the heart of the zone of passage and contact between the Aquitaine region and the Vasco-Cantabrian ledge. Excavations during the first half of the 20th century yielded a remarkable archaeological sequence covering the Middle Palaeolithic and the entire Upper Palaeolithic. New research conducted in the Saint-Martin chamber has revealed intensive Aurignacian occupations attributed to the archaic and early phases of this techno-complex. In this paper, we present a synthesis of the principal data that make Isturitz a key site in the study of this period.
