Abstract
    Two types of raw material used by Magdalenian hunter-gatherers are studied here. Based on the archaeological record of five Magdalenian assemblages of northern Spain, flint is first examined with a focus on its provenance before objects of adornment made of marine gastropods from the Mediterranean Sea are analysed. Also modifications of the materials have been studied, providing information of where, how and when these modifications were made. Regional Magdalenian mobility is discussed through the study of these artefacts.
