Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
Isturitz cave (Pyrénées-Atlantiques, France) is a famous prehistoric reference site. Offering one of the most important stratigraphic sequences of Western Europe dating from the Middle Palaeolithic to the end of the Upper Palaeolithic. Gravettian holds acentral place, both by its central stratigraphic position in the heart of the Upper Paleolithic and by the unequalled density of archaeological artefacts. Between 1996 and 1998, an operation of archaeological survey was launched at the request of the regional Service of Archaeology from Aquitaine in order to evaluate the archaeological potential of the cave and this book surveys the Gravettian lithic industry from Isturitz in its entirety in the form of a typological classification of lithic points.
