El Paleolítico Superior pre-Magdaleniense en el centro de la Península Ibérica: hacia un nuevo modelo

Abstract

The article presents an updated state-of-the-art on the problem of the pre-Magdalenian Upper Paleolithic settlement of the central area of the Iberian Peninsula. A review of the last published data suggests that classic models depicting an unpopulated Spanish plateau during the Late Pleniglacial must be reassessed. We also offer the first impressions derived from ongoing fieldworks conducted at the Upper Paleolithic site of Peña Capón (Sorbe River valley, Guadalajara, Spain). The archeological sequence recorded in this rock shelter, which confirms previous data and interpretations, will enable us, for the first time in research history of this region, to propose interpretations on human-environment interactions during the Late Pleniglacial based on solid archeological, geological and ecological data. Thus, we will be able to contrast previous proposals based on the Paleolithic graphic expressions of interior Iberia, which first demanded the necessity of considering a richer human settlement of the Spanish plateau than traditionally thought.
