Les industries du Paléolithique ancien de la Corée du Sud dans leur contexte stratigraphique et paléoécologiques : Leur place parmi les cultures du Paléolithique ancien en Eurasie et en Afrique

Abstract : The South Korea ancient Paleolithic industries in their stratigraphic an paleoecological context Comparisons with Eurasian and African ancient Paleolithic cultures The ancient Paleolithic was identified in South Korea for the first time in 1964 and the rhythm of discoveries has considerably accelerated since the end of the 1990s, due to largescale urban development. Over a hundred ancient Paleolithic sites are currently known. This volume is the result of a French-Korean cooperation program and aims to present the ancient Paleolithic in South Korea. Fifty five of the most significant sites are studied here. The lithic artefacts are grounded in their stratigraphic, paleoenvironmental, paleoecological, chronological and paleoanthropological contexts. Lithic productions is discussed in terms of raw material exploitation, technology and typology and then compared with Eurasian and African lithic industries. These South Korean ancient Paleolithic industries appear to be quite similar in spite of the fact than they are spread over a long timespan, witch goes from the early Middle Pleistocene to the end of the first part of the Upper Pleistocene. They can be attributed to an ancient Paleolithic complex with bifaces, pebble tools and polyhedrons but do not present any significant cultural evolution, either from a techno-typological or a techno-economical viewpoint.
