Ursidos en Medios Karsticos de la Cornisa Cantabrica (Pais Vasco y Navarra)

Details

This monograph develops a zooarchaeological and taphonomic study of four archaeological sites (Lezetxiki, Astigarragako Kobea, Labeko Koba and Ekain) and two paleontological caves (Muniziaga and Illobi) located in the eastern sector of the Cantabrian Corniche (Basque Country and Navarre). These sites are characterized by alternating occupations by bears (Ursus spelaeus and Ursus arcA), carnivores and human beings during the Upper Pleistocene and early Holocene. The study also demonstrates the existence of intense competition for the occupation of the caves until the early Upper Paleolithic period, when modern humans displaced the bears and carnivores.
