Abstract

The Tagliente shelter, located on the Lessini Mountains near Verona, beside having held deposits that belong to the middle Paleolithic and to the Aurignacian culture, represents the reference sequence for the ancient part of the recent Epigravettian in North-Eastern Italy, presenting extraordinary conditions of preservation. The vicinity of this site to a stream (the Progno) and to flint outcrops has probably driven the Epigravettian hunter-gatherers to choose the shelter. This work is part of a new research project focused on the site and aimed at reconsidering excavation documents (diaries, plants, sections and SU profiles) from the Seventies of the past century to the present in the internal area of the shelter. In particular, the project has two main objectives: to reconstruct exploitation process of the lithic resources by the techno-typological analysis of the flint litotypes of the Maiolica or Biancone (the most exploited raw material in the site) belonging to three layers from the internal area (SSUU 13 a beta, 250 and 308) and to contribute to the comprehension of settlement dynamics through the spatial distribution analysis of eleven stratigraphic units from the same area by the application of GIS systems.
