L'exploitation et la transformation de l'ivoire de mammouth : une étude technologique d'objets gravettiens de la grotte du Pape (Brassempouy, Landes)

Abstract : The results of a technological analysis of various artefacts made from mammoth ivory (products and wastes, rough shaped objects, elaborated objects) are presented in this article. These artefacts come from the gravettian levels of the grotte du Pape. Exploitation and transformation modes and technics are described. The production of two kinds of symbolic items (personal ornaments, feminine statuettes) is thus replaced within a techno-economic procedure including acquisition, stockpiling, exploitation and transformation of mammoth tusks.
