The paper focuses on the analysis of the main Mesolithic layer of the site VF1 of Mondeval de Sora. The results obtained allow to interpret Stratigraphic Unit 8, the main Sauveterrian habitation layer, as a palimpsest formed by several occupations. The presence of dwelling structures indicates the seasonal residential character of the site while results from the analysis of faunal remains and lithic assemblage delineate a functional emphasis towards the procurement and exploitation of animal carcasses.

Abstract

The paper focuses on the analysis of the main Mesolithic layer of the site VF1 of Mondeval de Sora. The results obtained allow to interpret Stratigraphic Unit 8, the main Sauveterrian habitation layer, as a palimpsest formed by several occupations. The presence of dwelling structures indicates the seasonal residential character of the site while results from the analysis of faunal remains and lithic assemblage delineate a functional emphasis towards the procurement and exploitation of animal carcasses.
