First and foremost we would like to thank Mme. Bordes for her support and encouragement of this project.  We would also like to acknowledge and thank the following individuals for their help: Alain Rousseau (Museé d'Aquitaine, Bordeaux, France), Dominique Armand (Instituté du Quarternaire, Talence, France), Larry Bartram (Thinking Strings),  Marie Soressi (Université de Bordeaux I, Talence, France), and Roland Nespoulet (Museé de l'Abri Pataud, Les Eyzies, France).  And we would like to give a very special thanks to all the many individuals who have helped enter ten of thousands of lines of data, digitize, crop and clean thousands of artifact photos, analyze ten of thousands of stone tools, wash and label thousands of artifacts, and scan thousands of notebook pages.  Without your help this project would not have been possible.

A major portion of the work to date has been supported by the Leakey Foundation, with additional funding from the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology and the University of Pennsylvania Research Foundation.

The 2000-2003 excavation seasons were supported by NSF grant #0073856. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.
