Étude de la répartition spatiale du matériel archéologique du site de Fejej FJ-1, dans le secteur FJ-1a

Abstract : Study of the spatial distribution of the archaeological material from the FJ-1 site, sector FJ-1a. The study of the spatial ditribution of the archaeological material from level C1 from the Fejej site FJ-1 was carried out by analysing the database "Palaeontological and prehistoric material". An occupation level, C1, was individualised, wich appears to correspond to a single and a short occupation of the site. Several bones in anatomical connection show that the archaeological level C1 is in a primary context. The lithic industry refits or the refitting of diverse bone fragments from the occupation level, the observation of vertical projections of objects show that there is one single occupation level, installed on a sandy ridge along a bordering structural saddle. The study of the disrtibution of the lithic industry knapped in situ and of the bones which were dismembered and fractured on site suggests that the Fejej FJ-1 level C1 corresponds to a base camp used for certain activities : knapping lithic industry, dismembering carcasses and fracturing bones, consuming meat.
