Dans le contexte du Paléolithique supérieur, la techno-économie des industries lithiques s’est concentrée sur l’étude des systèmes de mobilité. Les dimensions sociales et économiques des systèmes de production lithiques n’ont jusqu’ici été considérées qu’à la marge, ceci en raison d’une difficulté à discriminer les différentes modalités d’acquisition et de circulation des matériaux dans l’espace. À partir de données issues de sites de l’Épigravettien récent de Provence, de Ligurie, de Toscane et des Marches et en fondant nos analyses sur un solide référentiel pétroarchéologique, nous esquissons la trame d’un modèle de structuration territoriale, pouvant être décrit par au moins deux niveaux distincts. Le niveau inférieur correspond à des circulations de matériaux intenses, multidirectionnelles et multipolaires, sur des distances pouvant atteindre 300 km. Il définit deux unités : l’arc liguro-provençal et la Toscane. Le niveau supérieur est défini par une circulation unidirectionnelle depuis l’Italie centrale vers les deux unités précitées. À partir d’une analyse techno-économique des assemblages nous proposons d’interpréter le premier niveau d’organisation comme la matérialisation de territoires étendus (espaces de mobilité) et le second comme la trace d’une fraction d’un territoire social à plus large échelle. La mise en regard de ce territoire – ou réseau – social et de l’espace épigravettien italique conduit à s’interroger sur les relations entre réseaux de transferts matériels et diffusions de normes et traditions techniques aboutissant à la définition des entités chronoculturelles en préhistoire [less ▲]

Residue analysis has become a widely applied procedure for reconstructing the lifecycle of prehistoric stone tools. The increasing popularity of the approach can be linked with methodological advances, which sometimes allow taxonomic identifications of observed residues. Initially, residue analysis was performed in combination with use-wear analysis to use multiple strands of evidence and filter out recent and environmental contamination. The last decade, a paradigm shift occurred, and residue analysis is now mostly performed without use-wear analysis based on the argument that the residue distribution on the stone tool surface allows distinguishing between functional and incidental residues. Moreover, these potentially ambiguous-looking residues are often only studied when adhering to the stone tool surface and are not extracted for further analysis. This paradigm shift in residue analysis has led to its disconnection from use-wear analysis, and the integration of the two approaches has become less common. In addition, these studies often deal with small samples usually limited to one layer within one site, hampering our understanding of the variability in residue preservation between geographical regions and across time. Here, we present a large-scale study of 1500 stone tools from four Late Pleistocene sites (Fumane (IT), Les Cottés (FR), Les Près de Laures (FR), Bushman Rock shelter (SA)) from two continents. The study aims at assessing existing residue analysis protocols against these assemblages and gaining insight into the mechanisms of residue preservation and alteration in various settings. Present-day residue analysis protocols were evaluated by confronting the residue data with data from independent use-wear analysis performed by different analysts. Residues were analysed using a wide range of techniques: stereo-, incident and transmitted light microscopy, biochemical staining and SEM-EDS. Residue interpretations were based on an extensive reference collection available at TraceoLab, University of Liège. [less ▲]

Understanding hunting technology is pivotal in the study of adaptive and innovative forces that influenced the evolution of prehistoric societies. The manufacture, design and use of hunting weapons involve technical processes such as those of tool miniaturization, blank standardization and projection modes, but also influence broader demographic structures such as human subsistence strategies, territorial organization and socio-economic structures. Here we present a unique discovery from a newly uncovered site at Les Prés de Laure (Var, France). Excavations revealed a multi-stratified open-air site with archaeological units that were rapidly buried by the alluvium of the Jabron River. In 2015, 11 backed points were discovered in direct association with the remains of a bone point in a Gravettian layer dated to 23.5 ka cal BP. Wear and residue analysis of the lithic points in combination with complimentary experimental data converge to indicate that the find represents a bone point armed with lithic barbs and used as hunting weapon. This discovery is the oldest direct evidence for the manufacture and use of a composite hunting weapon and stimulates discussion on the style, function and design of prehistoric weapons. [less ▲]
