This ambitious study aims to explore the decision-making processes of Neanderthals when making and selecting tools, from selecting the raw material to the finished tool and its use. Based on lithic assemblages from sites in north-east and south-central France, Walle detects a number of different strategies employed, highlights the complexities of tool production and the significance of both choice and intention in the thought processes of the Neanderthals. The lithic data is presented in tabular form and many examples are illustrated. French text.
