The identification of lithic raw material sources used to produce tools and the characterization of their management are essential when studying a prehistoric population.

The Saalian phase of the Middle Paleolithic (MIS 8 to 6) in northern France, as with Belgium and the Rhine Valley, has been characterized by a poor archaeological record, which seems to reflect discontinuous human occupation of these areas.

While controversial from the point of view of its impact on the landscape, the large-scale mining of lava from the scoria cones of the East Eifel led to the discovery of many Middle Paleolithic find horizons within the volcanic craters atop these elevated positions.

Since prehistoric times, the northern part of Bourgogne/Franche-Comté (east central France) has been an attractive transition area for populations and fauna, allowing movement from central to western Europe (and vice versa) via the Upper Danube Basin and the Belfort Gap.

This article examines the technological and general appearance of Middle Paleolithic assemblages from a number of sites in the Côte Chalonnaise, Burgundy, France. Emanating from several assemblage characteristics observed within the stratified material from Grotte de la Verpillière II, ongoing research could demonstrate congruent technological patterns in the assemblages of a number of surrounding sites.

The study of three open-air assemblages with bifacial tools and Levallois debitage from Lorraine (France) has allowed us to identify the first Keilmesser artifacts recorded in the Grand-Est region. These assemblages present varied knapping methods and a relatively homogeneous typology, along with the exploitation of very different raw materials.

The stratified Middle Paleolithic site of Coussey in Lorraine (Vosges, France) was discovered in 2014 in trial trenching during rescue archaeology. The site, located at the confluence between the Saonelle and the Meuse rivers, is dominated by the corallian calcareous ledge of the Hauts de Meuse, spreading generally towards the west from the river channel.

Archaeological excavations at Eguisheim have revealed a small quantity of Middle Paleolithic finds associated with periglacial mammal fragments. Given the scarcity of such occurrences in Alsace (eastern France) and important older Paleolithic discoveries around Eguisheim, close attention was paid to the chronostratigraphical framework of these remains.

The Upper Rhine Plain is part of a Cenozoic graben, which is approximately 40 km wide and 300 km long. This geological structure determines the geometry and the thicknesses of the Quaternary sediments, with a subsiding central zone and loess-covered alluvial terraces on its margins.

With 150 years of research on the Paleolithic of the Swabian Jura, the region offers one of the richest records of Neanderthal occupation. The faunal remains from the caves of the Ach and Lone valleys provide an important source of data from Central Europe.

Language is widely held to underpin cumulative technology and social institutions. We argue that central to this power of language is one under-acknowledged feature: namely, the reflexivity of language.
