La gravure sur os au Magdalénien : étude microscopique d'une côte de la grotte de La Vache (commune d'Alliat, Ariège)

Abstract : For several years research on mobiliary artefacts from the Paleolithic has been following a new path where the artist engraver's behaviour is more involved. We do believe that the engravings, and the information which may be associated with them, help us visualise the links between the artist's hand, the tool he used, and the line of the engraved figure. Our present work consists in the study of the techniques of engraving on bone based on good knowledge of the different materials involved (bone and flint). The aim of such research is to look for macromorphological singularities of the lines, to re-discover the hand of the engraver through them : all things that bear witness to the artist's know-how.
