[en] The discovery of ancient footprints and spraints (faeces) of European Otter in the caves of Arcy-sur-Cure (Yonne), renowned for their great archaeological interest, has led the scientific team of the Museum of Natural Sciences of Orleans to launch an original archaeozoological study.
The analyzes allowed, on the one hand, to date the deposits of spraints and, on the other hand, to know the main preys of these “cave otters” after the remains of prey contained in the spraints... This extensive study is among the first of its kind in France, regarding otters who frequently used an underground river a thousand years ago !
