Essai d’interprétation du site paléolithique inférieur de Soucy 1 (Yonne)

Abstract : Soucy 1 is the first of six Middle Pleistocene sites found in fluvial context on an ancient terrace of the Yonne river at Soucy (North Burgundy), in a stratigraphic sequence cautiously attributed to the Holsteinian interglacial. It was excavated during a salvage operation in 1995 and has yielded more than 2 500 remains (lithic, fauna and pebbles). Spatial analysis reveals areas of flaking activities, concentrations of faunal remains and one concentration of unretouched pebbles, all indicating differential activities. These elements allow us to propose an interpretation about the site function.
