Chasseurs-cueilleurs : Comment vivaient nos ancêtres du Paléolithique supérieur

Abstract : This is an edited volume resulting from the colloquium that I organized, titled "Reconstructing Daily Life in the Upper Paleolithic" (held at the University of Lyon 3, in 2005). After being published in 2007, it was re-edited in 2013 as a paperback. The theme of the volume was to question the epistemological validity of our behavioral reconstructions on the basis of archaeological remains. This issue of the interpretive trajectory from material remains to the humans that made them ultimately poses the problem of what it is that prehistorians want to rediscover and reconstruct. Confrontations between numerous representatives from varied fields (tourism professionals, historians of our discipline, zooarchaeologists, technologists, rock art specialists, etc.), but all of whom are working for a better understanding of prehistoric life styles, shows that if we succeed in recovering specific elements from daily life, the social and symbolic dimensions most often remain beyond reach.
