Abstract: In this paper we present the results about the raw materials studies of the Late Pleistocene deposit of El Pirulejo and includes the knapped lithic industries and other types of stone supports used for diverse functionalities. Among the former, the chert suppose the 97% of the raw material used in lithic tools manufacturing processes. Likewise, we analyze the rest of the stone supports documented in the sequence of the deposit. The diversity of raw materials and the variety of documented functionalities support the idea that the site was a central element for the hunter-gatherer communities that used the central zone of the Subbaetic mountain ranges and the Guadalquivir basin, mainly Magdalenian.
