Acheulean

This commission, created in 2016, is devoted to the Acheulean (assemblages attesting the practice of the bifacial technology) in Africa and Eurasia, between 1.8 Ma and 200 ka. In regards to the new discoveries of the two last decades, the aim of this committee is to develop relationships between teams and researchers, to dynamize the field and encouraging publications and workshops. The committee associates specialists of lithic technology and faunal remains, based on fieldworks on major sites currently excavated.
