Approche expérimentale de techniques paléolithiques de façonnage de roches peu aptes à la taille.

Abstract : This paper deals with some working techniques of nonflint stones, such as pecking, hammering, polishing with or without an abrasive agent. After having observed archaeological pieces with traces of theses techniques, we carried out experimentations on varying techniques and raw materials in order to evaluate the relative qualities of these different raw materials and the efficiency of the different tested techniques. A comparison with archaeological documents allows to conclude to a differentiated treatment of nonflint stones at the Upper Palaeolithic. Moreover, these experimentations give some insight on the question of the need of an intermediate abrasive agent for polishing operations ; or that of the distinction between traces of polish due to the fabrication and traces of polish due to the use.
