The New Project at Pech de l'Azé IV
|In the summer of 1996, Harold Dibble and Shannon McPherron were
given authorization by the Institute de Préhistoire et de Géologie du Quaternaire and
Mme. Bordes to carry out the research necessary to publish the results of that excavation
according to modern standards of description and analysis.
There are three primary goals of this project
After four years (1996-1999) the first two of these goals has now been achieved.
The pages that follow detail the state of the collection and the steps we
took to restore it. The collections have been published (McPherron and Dibble 2000)
. A full publication of the data set will come with the final monograph.
