New excavations at the site of Contrebandiers Cave, Morocco

Journal Article


Abstract


  • New excavations at Contrebandiers Cave, Morocco, began in 2007 and continued through 2010. This site, originally

    excavated by Roche in the 1950s, contained deposits with Aterian, Iberomaurusian, and Neolithic materials,

    although the latter were completely removed during Roche's excavations. This report presents an overview of the

    recent excavations, the stratigraphic sequence of the site, absolute dates based on OSL, TL, and ESR, and detailed

    data on the lithic (Iberomaurusian, Aterian, and Mousterian) and faunal assemblages, the latter of which includes

    large mammals, microvertebrates, and marine shells.
