Gestion des ressources lithiques au Paléolithique moyen dans une halte de chasse spécialisée sur le renne : Les Pradelles (Marillac-le-Franc, Charente)

Abstract : In the lower levels of Les Pradelles, in Charentes, very low densities of lithic artefacts are in contrast with large quantities of bone remains, mostly reindeer. The introduction of finished tools (made on non local, high quality flint from the Cretaceous outcrops) highly curated in the site, together with an expedient strategy on strictly local flint, suggest short term occupations, probably in relation with a “ task specific location ” in a logistical system. Faunal studies confirm this hypothesis. The large bone sample underlines the preponderance of hunting activities repeatedly during the Fall. Intense butchering activities took place on the site as demonstrated by the abundance of filleting marks. Lithic and faunal data indicate that this location should be considered as a seasonal temporary camp devoted to reindeer meet processing for delayed consumption and possibly meat storage.
