Le Sud : une plate-forme pour le peuplement des espaces septentrionaux pendant le Pléistocène moyen récent ?

Abstract : The paleolithic settlement of northern spaces is currently regarded as a discontinuous, oscillating phenomenon at the mercy of the climatic fluctuations. During the glacial phases in particular, these periglacial zones would have been completely deserted by the paleolithic populations. This opposes them to the southernmost area which would have known a more continuous settlement. The South would be placed thus like a potential platform for the cyclic resettlement of northern spaces. While following this assumption, one can expect to find in the northern settlements cultural ruptures and the cyclic marks of a southernmost cultural heritage. I examine this question for the end of Middle Pleistocene between -350 000 and -130 000 years. I use for that sequences of main sites of Périgord and Charente and a database made up for Late Middle Pleistocene of the North-West of Europe. These elements bring to wonder about the extent of the depopulation of the northern territories during the glacial phases, the importance of human displacements and the reality of the north-south contacts.
