THE DECORATED MESOLITHIC ROCK SHELTERS
SOUTH OF ÎLE-DE-FRANCE:
Revision of the Archaeological Data and Research Perspectives
Alain BÉNARD, Colas GUÉRET
The rock shelter art in the sandstone formations south of Île-de-France is mostly non-figurative. The blunted sandstone and flint objects interpreted as engravers and discovered in the stratigraphic levels of a few decorated caves enable use-wear analyses. A new study of ancient collections renews and refines chrono-cultural attributions in the Mesolithic.
