Abstract

The Abri Dufaure is an Upper Paleolithic site located in Les Landes, southwest France. This article presents the results of a site formation study performed on the Abri Dufaure rockshelter border, upper slope, and midslope deposits. The goal of the site formation study was to determine the degree to which cultural and natural processes created the intrasite patterns. A number of variables were used to examine depositional and postdepositional processes. Conclusions about site integrity, stratigraphic resolution, activity areas, and postdepositional modifications are presented.
