Contribution of lithic analyses for the understanding of neolithisation processes in the Upper Rhone Valley.

Abstract : The neolithisation is one of the major upheavals of the history of humanity. If in the nuclear zone near Eastern, the populations evolve locally of the Mesolithic era to the Neolithic era, the processes of transformation, in Western Europe, are more complex and mix colonization, diffusion and acculturation. One of the fundamental questions is then to determine the role which the last populations of Mesolithic hunter-collectors in this irreversible phenomenon of great width could hold. The study of lithic industries of the sixth and fifth millennia of the Rhone valley makes it possible to document an original case of interaction between hunters and peasants and then authorizes the construction of new cultural scenarios.
