The site of Trou Al’Wesse has been interpreted as a site of possible contact between Mesolithic and Neolithic populations, given the discovery of Neolithic ceramics and Mesolithic tools in stratum 4. However, recent excavations have also revealed the presence of three Early Mesolithic facies overlain by a Neolithic layer, while a Late Mesolithic presence is suggested for a fourth facies at the base of the terrace slope. Lithic and faunal analyses, as well as spatial analysis of the stratigraphic position of material recovered, indicate a clear separation of Mesolithic and Neolithic occupations. We present a new interpretation of the sequence of Holocene human occupations at Trou Al'Wesse in light of these data, arguing that the site was regularly occupied during the Early Mesolithic, forming a palimpsest of these visits, followed by an occupational hiatus and then re-occupation during the Late Mesolithic. The Early Neolithic is a separate occupation clearly unrelated to the Early Mesolithic underlying it, but ongoing fieldwork may recover data concerning the Final Mesolithic and its relation to the Early Neolithic at the site.

Recent excavations at the cave site of Trou al'Wesse (Modave, Belgium) have yielded significant new data concerning the Mesolithic occupations at the site that contribute to the understanding of the chronology and environmental context of the Belgian Mesolithic. We present the results of the analyses of lithic and faunal assemblages, site taphonomy and spatial distribution, and discuss the relationship of the site with other Mesolithic sites in Belgium.

Ongoing excavations on the terrace of the cave site of Trou Al’Wesse (Modave, Belgium) have yielded evidence from a stratified sequence dating from the end of the Early Mesolithic to the Early Neolithic. Stratum 4b is divided into a series of laterally superimposed facies ( - ), each of which contains palimpsests of lithics and fauna. The oldest facies ( ) has been dated to 9000±40 BP (Beta-209871) and the most recent ( ) to 6650±70 BP (Lv-1751). These dates demonstrate the regular re-occupation of the site during the Early and Late Mesolithic, with a significant occupational hiatus during the Middle Mesolithic. Isolated human remains include a cranial fragment dated to 6540±45 BP (OxA-10561) and a deciduous incisor. The interdisciplinary project integrates geological, archaeological and environmental data to address hypotheses related to continuity and change across the Pleistocene-Holocene transition and human response to changing environmental conditions, change during the Mesolithic period, and the Mesolithic-Neolithic transition.

Although retouched bladelets (Dufour or others) were not recovered, the Aurignacian assemblages from Mitoc-Malu Galben (Romania) probably belongs to the Krems-Dufour type Aurignacian. In the lithic material gathered by V. chirica in the 1980s, evidence indicates the existence of bladelet production from carinated tools/cores. A small unpublished lithic assemblage from the 1990s excavations, associated with a hearth, confirms this hypothesis. The operational schemes are described and compared to those from the western and eastern Aurignacian geographic regions. [less ▲]

This article presents the results analyses of the archaeological and faunal assemblages from the Holocene strata at Trou Al'Wesse (Modave, Liège Province, Belgium). Two strata of human occupation are present in this sequence: the Early Neolithic in stratum 4.1 and the Late Mesolithic in stratum 4.2. The archaeological material includes lithics and ceramics. Faunal analysis of sample column K4 was done for paleoecological and taphonomic analysis of strata 4 and 12. [less ▲]

This article present the discovery context of Neolithic ceramic sherds in stratum 4 (formerly attributed to the Late Mesolithic) at Trou Al'Wesse. The vertical distribution of the archaeological material and stratigraphic data demonstrate that these sherds do not belong to the Mesolithic assemblage. Post-depositional processes in front of the cave entrance have reworked these sherds and Mesolithic lithic artifacts. The stratigraphy also shows that, against the walls, there is no mixture between the two occupations. [less ▲]
