The Middle and Upper Pleistocene loess record and Acheulean-Mousterian industries of Saint-Illiers

Abstract:
A new sequence of loess / palaeosol has been found at Saint-Illiers (Yvelines) in western Paris Basin (France) in the context of an archaeological survey. The excavation yielded several levels of Palaeolithic artifacts comprising handaxes. An extensive study was carried out in order to get a reliable chronological framework. Together with micromorphology data, Thermoluminescence (TL) and Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) have been used to address this target. TL and OSL have been applied on burnt flints and sediments.
