ABSTRACT The Mont Houy site has to be examined in the general context of the denudation sites of the Escaut basin : Haussy, Solesmes, Busigny all have a series of alluvial pockets preserved in the eocene substratum and which have been disturbed by deep-seated modifications. The archaeological layers of Solesmes and Busigny, attributed respectively to the Typical Mous- terian and Ferrassie-type Mousterian cultures, have been affected by the formation of a polygon system. Whatever the situation regarding the attribution of the lower level (Mousterian ou Acheulean), the interest of the Mont Houy site lies mainly in the discovery of a flake-based industry, with backed blades, in an erosion layer probably situated at the base of the Upper Full Glacial level : a piece of evidence to be filed in the still meagre records regarding the « Late Mousterian ».

Abstract
ABSTRACT The Mont Houy site has to be examined in the general context of the denudation sites of the Escaut basin : Haussy,
Solesmes, Busigny all have a series of alluvial pockets preserved in the eocene substratum and which have been disturbed by
deep-seated modifications. The archaeological layers of Solesmes and Busigny, attributed respectively to the Typical Mous-
terian and Ferrassie-type Mousterian cultures, have been affected by the formation of a polygon system. Whatever the situation
regarding the attribution of the lower level (Mousterian ou Acheulean), the interest of the Mont Houy site lies mainly in the
discovery of a flake-based industry, with backed blades, in an erosion layer probably situated at the base of the Upper Full
Glacial level : a piece of evidence to be filed in the still meagre records regarding the « Late Mousterian ».
