The rock shelter Abri du Poisson is one of the significant sites of cave art in Franco-Cantabrian region. First of all it is well known by a very detailed and realistic image of salmon. There are not so many representations of fish in the cave art of Western Europe, there is no other examples offish images made in bas-relief technique. However this rock shelter is interesting for other reasons too. Recently, new discoveries have been made at the site offering the possibility of certain revision, including chronological, of the available materials and the appearance of the plafond of the rock shelter in the Aurignacian and Gravettian. The field works in 2016-2018 included complete documenting of every plafond feature of natural or artificial modification and a geomorphologic analysis in Abri du Poisson. The works were realized through the multidisciplinary approach, which permits not only to compare the results obtained by different methods but to show the dynamics of processes that took place at the site in the Paleolithic.
