Le Paleolithique Superoir Ancien de L'Europe Du Nord-Ouest

WAS £19.99 £9.99

Product description

This book presents the Acts of the conference «Le Paléolithique supérieur ancien (35000-15000 BP) de l’Europe du Nord-Ouest», held at the Museum of Sens (Yonne) in April 2009. It includes twenty-seven contributions that reflect the state of research on human groups from the Middle to Upper Palaeolithic transition to the appearance of Magdalenian societies, from the threshold of Poitou to the banks of the Oder. This work is first dedicated to a solid overview of data acquired in the preceding decade for the different chronological groups in the Paris Basin, from the Aurignacian to the Middle Magdalenian. While lithic industries represent the foundation for our interpretations, analyses that were previously marginal in the Paris Basin (bone technology, taphonomy) were also carried out. Comparisons with research conducted in neighbouring regions (Brittany, Central, Eastern and Northern France and Normandy) and with other countries in Northwest Europe (Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, Great Britain and Switzerland) offer this regional and targeted approach the perspective necessary to explain cross-border human phenomena. These contributions address new topics regarding the Early Upper Palaeolithic or present regional overviews and synthetic chronologies. For both, the authors place their work in the general chronological context of the Upper Palaeolithic of the region and/or the countries involved.
Good condition.
