The aim of this work was providing a contribution to the reconstruction of the natural and anthropogenic formation processes of deposits, related to the earliest phase of occupation of the site, especially the northern sector of Tagliente Rockshelter (Stallavena di Grezzana, Verona), in particular the part protected by overhang of the shelter. The study also allowed the reconstruction of the techno-economic processes related to the exploitation of some of the lithic raw materials used by Epigravettians groups for the production of tools (Scaglia Variegata , Scaglia Rossa and ooliths San Vigilio ) and the settlements dynamics, through the spatial analysis of lithic industries. One of the most interesting results of this study is the presence of lithic elements in Scaglia Rossa coming from Umbria and Marche regions. The study also showed that the area protected by overhang of the shelter has been intensively occupied, and that it has been used for the carrying out of different subsistence activities, as well as knapping and production of retouched elements. This area is in contrast with the outside part of the shelter, which is reserved to the accumulation of the waste of flint knapping and butchering activities.

Abstract

The aim of this work was providing a contribution to the reconstruction of the natural and anthropogenic formation processes of deposits, related to the earliest phase of occupation of the site, especially the northern sector of Tagliente Rockshelter (Stallavena di Grezzana, Verona), in particular the part protected by overhang of the shelter. The study also allowed the reconstruction of the techno-economic processes related to the exploitation of some of the lithic raw materials used by Epigravettians groups for the production of tools (Scaglia Variegata , Scaglia Rossa and ooliths San Vigilio ) and the settlements dynamics, through the spatial analysis of lithic industries. One of the most interesting results of this study is the presence of lithic elements in Scaglia Rossa coming from Umbria and Marche regions. The study also showed that the area protected by overhang of the shelter has been intensively occupied, and that it has been used for the carrying out of different subsistence activities, as well as knapping and production of retouched elements. This area is in contrast with the outside part of the shelter, which is reserved to the accumulation of the waste of flint knapping and butchering activities.
