Correlations Among the Pech Sites
|In 1976, Bordes made a preliminary attempt at
correlating the deposits and industries of Pech IV with Pech I and II (see below). At the
time, however, the sedimentological analysis of these sites was not yet fully complete. In
addition, over the past twenty years, the chronology of the Upper Pleistocene in general
and of southwest France in particular has been completely revised. Today, a new effort to
study and date the stratigraphy of Pech II is underway, and a similiar effort is needed
for Pech IV.
