Les productions lamellaires dans l'Aurignacien de l'abri Pataud, Les Eyzies-de-Tayac (Dordogne)

Abstract : During Aurignacian period, several techniques have been developped to produce bladelets. In the Aurignacian sequence of abri Pataud (9 levels) these lithic reduction sequences have been identified and their importance in each stage of the Aurignacian is spedfied. Bladelet production from Aurignacian scrapers (carinated and nose-shaped) appears in the whole sequence. As it is usually the case, the bladelet production from busqued burin is almost exclusively present in the evolved Aurignacian. However, a similar reduction sequence has been identified in one of the early Aurignacians levels. In the early Aurignacian, small bladelets producing from scrapers are rather straight or curved. At the opposite, the evolved Aurignacian bladelets, produced from scrapers and burins are mainly curved and twisted. Long bladelets are produced from prismatic cores during all the Aurignacian sequence, but always on a small scale production. Bladelet tools are underdevelopped, except Dufour bladelets in level 8 and so it raises the question of their unretouched use.
