LES INTERSTRATIFICATIONS CHATELPERRONIEN / AURIGNACIEN DU ROC-DE-COMBE ET DU PIAGE (LOT, FRANCE). ANALYSE TAPHONOMIQUE DES INDUSTRIES LITHIQUES ; IMPLICATIONS ARCHEOLOGIQUES.

Abstract : Diagnosed at Roc-de-Combe and Le Piage, the Châtelperronian / Aurignacian interstratifications are crucial in supporting the idea of a long contemporaneity between the last Neandertals and the first anatomically modern humans in southwestern Europe. A taphonomic analysis of the lithic industries at the two sites shows that:
- the interstratifications result from post-depositional processes, often combined with errors in stratigraphic observations;
- portions of these sites are well preserved and deserved further study. A techno-typologial study of the Aurignacian assemblages hence individualized shows that :
- at Roc-de-Combe, the Aurignacian sequence starts with a classical Aurignacian I,
- at Le Piage, above the Châtelperronian and below the early Aurignacian there is an industry unknown until now in the Aquitanian basin.
These results allow us to discuss the validity of the general models conventionally used to explain the Middle to Upper Palaeolithic transition in Western Europe.
