Pratiques cynégétiques et exploitation des ressources animales dans les niveaux du Magdalénien supérieur-final de El Horno (Ramales, Cantabrie, Espagne)

Abstract : El Horno has produced rich faunal assemblages associated with magdalenian lithic and bone tools. Taphonomic analysis strongly suggests a human origin for the fauna. The faunal spectra which appear to be widely specialized are very clearly dominated by the Ibex. Adult prey probably hunted at the end of winter and in early spring were mainly killed by the Magdalenians from El Horno. Ibex and red deer carcasses seem to have been introduced in the form of segments after initial butchery at the killsite. The study of butchery traces and the degree of fragmentation of assemblages suggest an exhaustive exploitation of food resources provided by the animal carcasses. The comparison made on the Upper-Late Magdalenian bone assemblages from the centre of the Cantabrian Region shows that, on animal species representation, El Horno is very close to layer 2 of Rascaño. On the other hand, practices seem to be very similar on all of the sites studied whether it is for carcasses transport or processing.
