Carnivores et/ou hommes dans deux sites moustéro-atériens de Dar Bouazza (Casablanca, Maroc) : les données de la taphonomie

Abstract : The study of faunal series recently recovered in Atlantic Morocco from Moustero-Aterian layers of two caves with swallow holes acting as pitfalls (Grotte des Félins and Grotte des Gazelles at Dar Bouazza) reveals new informations about accumulation processes and successive transformations of faunal remains during Upper Pleistocene in this part of North Africa. A common feature of the two series is the paucity of human traces and the prevalence of carnivore activity in layers also containing lithic artefacts. The taphonomic methodology used to study these series allowed us to differentiate between the impact of the various faunal remains accumulators and/or modifiers in these two cavities.
