Laussel

 

a Paleolithic grotto in the vicinity of the village of Marquet, east of Les Eyzies, in the Dordogne Department, in southwestern France. Laussel was excavated by the French archaeologist G. Lalanne in 1908-11. It contains eight cultural layers, encompassing the epochs from the Acheulean and Mousterian cultures to the Solutrean. The layer belonging to the Aurignacian culture yielded realistic bas-reliefs of human figures cut on blocks and slabs of limestone. Of particular interest are the representations of a nude woman, holding a bison horn, and of a man throwing a spear. According to the conjectures of the Soviet archaeologist S. N. Zamiatnin, the bas-reliefs were part of one composition depicting a group hunting magical rite.

Se han clasificado las evidencias graficas en funcion del tipo de aproximacion cronologica aplicada a las mismas: datacion directa (en los casos de Cosquer, Cougnac, Pech-Merle y Mayenne-Science), datacion indirecta (Gargas, Grotte d'Arcy, Cussac y Chauvet), datacion relativa obtenida por el analisis de la estratigrafia parietal, bien por cubrimiento de las representaciones por estratos arqueologicos datados (Pairnon-Pair, Placard, Grotte d'Oreille d'Enfer) o de elementos parietales integrados tras su fragmentacion o desprendimiento, en una unidad estratigrafica datada (Abri Labattut, Abri de Laussel, Abri Vignaud).

Recent work on common agency includes theoretical extensions of the framework (e.g., Laussel and Le Breton 2001; Peters 2001) as well as applications of models with a multiprincipal structure (e.g., Dixit et al.

General conditions guaranteeing uniqueness and existence of the equilibrium in these models were established only recently, for example, by Laussel and LeBreton (1998) in the symmetric two-region game and by Peralta and van Ypersele (2002) in the asymmetric case with an arbitrary number of locations.
