Intrt de lapproche morphognique pour la comprhension globale dune grotte haute valeur patrimoniale, la grotte Chauvet (Ardche - France), 2004, Delannoy Jeanjacques, Perrette Yves, Debard Evelyne, Ferrier Catherine, Kervazo Bertrand, Perroux Annesophie, Jaillet Stphane, Quinif Yves
Interest of the morphogenesis approach to improve the knowledge of a high-value heritage: Chauvet cave (Ardche, France) - This paper describes the shapes and cave deposits of the Chauvet cave. Especially, the geomorphologic approach improves the global understanding of the Chauvet cave characteristics while Man and animal prehistoric occupancies. Access to the cave, painting location in the cave, and finally cave closing, are discussed on geomorphologic basis to answer the questions asked by prehistorians and archaeologists. The ultimate goal of this paper is to enhance the contribution of the geomorphologic high resolution mapping to the prehistoric investigations. To answer the three questions above, we used shapes and deposits to relate the past cave environments. Soil detailed map allows to describe deposits and shapes in a stratigraphic approach. Some U/Th dating complete the chronology especially during Man and animal occupancy; thus, the closing of the prehistoric entrance has been dated older than 15000 years. Also, this paper shows the interest of crossing the disciplinary approaches in the understanding of such a complex scientific object: the Chauvet cave, a high value Man heritage

Attribution des gravures paleolithiques de la grotte d'Aldene (Cesseras, Herault) a l'Aurignacien par la datation des remplissages geologiques, 2005, Ambert P, Guendon Jl, Galant P, Quinif Y, Gruneisen A, Colomer A, Dainat D, Beaumes B, Requirand C,
ResumeLes gravures paleolithiques de la grotte d'Aldene ont ete decouvertes [13] dans une galerie revelee par l'exploitation miniere des phosphates de ce karst [10]. Reduites a une dizaine d'unites, ces gravures ont pourtant suscite plusieurs etudes [13,15,21]. La derniere [19] souligne leurs ressemblances (faunique et stylistique) avec le bestiaire de la grotte Chauvet [5-7]. L'etude stratigraphique, paleontologique et chronologique des remplissages permet de situer le passage des paleolithiques entre le depot de deux planchers stalagmitiques dates de 37 000 et 24 400 BP. La datation de 30 260 [plus-or-minus sign] 220 BP obtenue sur les charbons issus d'un niveau intermediaire atteste une incursion humaine a l'Aurignacien, synchrone de la premiere phase de l'art de Chauvet. Pour citer cet article : P. Ambert et al., C. R. Palevol 4 (2005).AbstractAttribution of the Palaeolithic engravings of the cave of Aldene (Cesseras, Herault) to the Aurignacian by the dating of geological deposits. The Palaeolithic engravings of the cave of Aldene were discovered [13] in a gallery revealed during the mining of phosphates in this karst [10]. Although only made up of about ten units, these engravings have given rise to several studies [13,15,21]. The most recent [19] highlights their similarities (faunal and stylistic) with the bestiary from the Chauvet cave [5-7]. The stratigraphic, palaeontological and chronological study of the cave deposits permits the dating of the presence of the Palaeolithic people between the deposition of two dripstone floors dated at 37 000 and 24 400 BP. The date of 30 260 [plus-or-minus sign] 220 BP obtained on charcoal sampled from an intermediate level attests a human incursion in the Aurignacian period, which is contemporary with the first phase of the art of Chauvet.
