The Abri de la Souquette is little known today when compared with the neighboring sites of Abri Castanet and Abri Blanchard. A long history of investigation at the Abri de la Souquette has led not to a wider understanding of a site with significant Aurignacian deposits, but rather to scholarly obscurity as a site devoid of further research potential. In this paper, we attempt to lift some of this obscurity by chronicling the history of research at this site, and provide new radiocarbon dates demonstrating contemporaneity with the Castanet Aurignacian.
