Résumé

Patrick Auguste, as a zooarchaeologist and palaeontologist, describes his activities during the shooting of the film "Néandertal, l'homme de tous climats" (Neanderthal a human of all climes) on the archaeological site of Caours in the Somme, France.
His studies on animal bones allow him to reconstruct the behaviour of Neanderthal man in the ecological context of the time.
In particular, he describes the butchery activities practised by Neanderthals 123,000 years ago.
