Le gisement paléolithique moyen et les séquencess pléistocènes de Villiers-Adam (Val-d'Oise) : chronostratigraphie, environnement et implantations humaines

Abstract : Discovered in 1996 during motorway construction works, the Middle Palaeolithic site of Villiers-Adam and associated Pleistocene sequences provided an opportunity to a multidisciplinary study for the first time in the Val-d'Oise department. The main Early Wechselian archaeological level (105 000 ka BP) of the Petit Saule site has been excavated over an area of 3 866 m2. It's characterized by a Levallois points production, via various methods. The study of the distribution of the lithic artefacts has yielded important informations about the internal structuration of the site. The stratigraphic sequence gave important palaeoenvironmental data about the last 200 000 years which correspond to a period covering two interglacial-glacial cycles (IS 7 to 2). Due to correlations between this site and other North-Western European sequences, Villiers-Adam is a reference for the knowledge of the Northern France Quaternary.
