An osseous industry dated from the Last Glacial Maximum: the special case of the “Le Colombier” assemblage in Chézy-sur-Marne (Aisne, France)

Abstract : Located in the south-east of Picardy in the Aisne, the open-air site of «Le Colombier» allows us to re-evaluate our knowledge of the human occupation of northern Europe during the Last Glacial Maximum. Thanks to the many and varied remains it contains, it offers a rare opportunity to collect information on the behaviour developed by these poorly known societies from the early Upper Palaeolithic period in northern France. This is particularly the case of the assemblage of bone industrie, whose small number (5 items divided into waste and tools) is counterbalanced by its strong typological-technological coherence and by the presence of pieces that could attest that the occupants of Chézy-sur-Marne transformed reindeer antler according to principles that differed from those of contemporary Badegoulian groups in south-western France.
