Abstract
Evolutionary approaches to behaviour and culture are slowly gaining acceptance in archaeology, and Palaeolithic archaeology in particular. As it has been deployed in numerous ethological, ethnological and even archaeological (Holocene) contexts, behavioural ecology (BE), one such approach, has earned an exceptional empirical and analytical track record. As such, multiple models exist for each subfield of the BE, awaiting modification for use in Palaeolithic "deep time". In this paper, which is the second and final part of a study on differential animal exploitation strategies between Mousterian, Chatelperronian and Aurignacian, we deploy the so-called diet breadth model or prey model in the context of the well-known competition hypothesis, while also evaluating our results in terms of model utility.
