Summary (English)

  • Systematic archaeological investigations were not planned for 2009, instead work concentrated on the maintenance of the area and the completion of the investigations aimed at the characterization of the areas involved in the supply of lithic raw materials. This research, begun several years ago, had produced interesting results and therefore it was decided to extend the areas of the study. On the spot investigations of relevant sites and field survey aimed at the recording of areas with raw lithic materials mapped 15 outcrops, from which geological samples were taken for comparison with the archaeological material of the middle and upper Palaeolithic. The final aim of this study is the definition of the mobility strategies of Palaeolithic human groups.
