Les techniques d'éclairage paléolithiques : un bilan.

Abstract : This article synthesizes what we know today of the different means of lighting available to Upper Paleolithic people that allowed them to venture deep underground : fat-burning stone lamps, torches and small lightened hearths. Interpretive problems raised by these different artifacts are discussed, as well as the technical characteristics, advantages and the disadvantages of each of these approaches to lighting.
