En route vers l'Ouest. Les débuts de l'Aurignacien en Europe

Abstract : Westward Ho? Building on a re-assessment of the major Aurignacian sequences found in central Europe and the Balkans, this book picks up the trail of the earliest anatomically-modern humans (Homo sapiens sapiens) across Europe. The analysis of the lithic production from Geissenklösterle in Germany, Willendorf and Krems in Austria, and Bacho Kiro in Bulgaria provides the basis for a discussion about the unity and variability of the initial stages of this cultural complex, equated with the beginning of the Upper Paleolithic. The ultimate issue is that of the processes leading up to the emergence of the Upper Paleolithic. In fine, it can only be addressed by additionally taking into consideration the other technical and symbolic occurences that characterize the unique course followed by modern humans.
