New Data on Late Magdalenian Lithic Technological Organization at Lapa do Picareiro
Few Paleolithic sites in Portugal possess enough data to provide for a comprehensive analysis of Upper Paleolithic site function. However, Lapa do Picareiro, a cave site in the Estremadura region of Portugal, is exceptional in that it possesses continuous chronology and is continuing to produce high resolution data sets pertaining to site function, lithic technological organization, and subsistence. This poster compares and contrasts old and new lithic data sets from the late Magdalenian at Lapa do Picareiro. The comparison will focus particularly on changes in raw material use, tool function, and reduction sequence. This project contextualizes the observed patterns found in the lithic technological assemblage in the broader context of site function at Lapa do Picereiro during the late Magdalenian.
