Neanderthals, Carnivores and Caprines in two Upper Pleistocene sites of South-eastern France.

Abstract

The south-eastern margins of the French Massif Central yield many rock shelters and caves with Neanderthal occupations dated to the Marine Isotopic Stages (MIS) 5-3. Les Barasses II and Abri des Pêcheurs share the same topographic configuration with lithic and faunal peculiarities, especially the abundance of ibex remains as well as a diversified carnivore guild. In these small cavities, human activities were limited as demonstrated by scarce lithic remains and butchery marks, construed as such short-term occupations (bivouacs). The topographic setting of the sites, and past climatic and environmental conditions raise questions on the presence of ibex populations within the caves, and we suggest that they were probably used as shelter by individuals or groups who died naturally with a limited impact of predators.
