Mesolithic and Neolithic cultures co-existing in the upper Rhone valley.

Abstract : Understanding of the cultural transition from the Mesolithic to Neolithic in the Rhône valley has been radically informed by excavation in the Grotte du Gardon (Ain).Examination of the well-stratified assemblages shows that flint and pottery associated with early Neolithic cultures in the Mediterranean occurred with lithics of local Mesolithic traditions. The author proposes that during the transitional period in this region in the VIth millennium BC, peoples of the two cultures lived side by side.
