Produktbeschreibung

This book provides comprehensive information on the materials excavated at Pech de l’Azé IV, both by the original excavator François Bordes in the 1970s, and more recently by the authors and their scientific team. By applying a range of new excavation and analytical techniques, the authors present detailed material on the formation of the site, its chronology and the nature of the hominin occupations. Pech de l’Azé IV is part of a complex of Lower and Middle Paleolithic cave sites in the Dordogne Valley of southwestern France. Although this region has been well known for its rich concentration of Paleolithic sites since the mid-19th century and many of the sites have been repeatedly excavated, none have been fully documented. This includes detailed studies of the stone tool technology and faunal remains, and changes in them over time. This site was regularly occupied by groups of Neanderthals from approximately 100,000 to 40,000 years ago. During this period, global-scale climate changes transformed the region from a relatively warm climate (similar to today’s) to a very cold, glacial climate. This site provides insights into changes in Neanderthal behavior that presumably reflect, at least in part, adaptation to changes in the environment and availability of important resources, such as prey species.
