The preventive excavation of the site of Warluis I, in the valley of the Thérain (Oise) brought to light a concentration of Beuronian remains dating from the second half of the 8th millennium B.C. The Prehistoric people settled on dry wooded land next to a stream. They worked the plentiful siliceous raw material on the spot, collected hazelnuts and practised boar-hunting, probably a horde (a wild sow and her young). The small number of animals, the absence of certain parts of the skeletons, the typological poverty of the tools and their short period of use, all indicate a short stay.
