'Gambier D, 2000: Aurignacian Children and Mortuary Practice in Western Europe. Anthropologie (Brno) 38, 1: 5-21'.
This paper investigates the evidence for funerary practice during the Aurignacian in western Europe by a focus on well documented juvenile remains. The skeletal remains are described in the context of what is known about excavation conditions and the archaeological context at each site. This report draws on less well known documents to provide a careful overview of the topic. Alternative processes are considered as processes that explain the fragmentary nature of the evidence. Evidence for definitive burial among the Aurignacian in western Europe is not definitive.
