Entre el Gravetiense y el Solutrense: el nivel 3 de Peña Capón (valle del Sorbe, Guadalajara)

Abstract

The Peña Capón rock shelter contains an archaeological deposit known since the 1970’s that was the object of a preliminary study in the late 1990’s. We have recently conducted a new analysis of the known materials, that includes the technological and typological study of the lithics, the taphonomic and archaeozoological analysis of the faunal remains and the radiocarbon dating of several bone samples. This revision has allowed us to assign the level 3 to an intermediate stage between the Gravettian and the Solutrean. This matter constitutes an important breakthrough within the Meseta area, where little is known about the initial and middle phases of the Upper Palaeolithic. We present the preliminary results obtained from the study of this level and discuss its possible relations to other areas of the Iberian Peninsula, paying special attention to its striking resemblances to the assemblages defined as Protosolutrean in the central Atlantic region of Portugal.
