La néolithisation de la vallée du Rhône et de ses marges

Abstract : The neolithisation of southern France develops during the VIth and Vth millennia before our era. In the Rhone basin, the geographical and chronological distribution of the sites shows that one can model the propagation of the Neolithic economy in three chronological stages. It is only during the third step that the Early Neolithic penetrates inside the lands and conquers mountainous environments. As, besides, it appears that Final Mesolithic is not clearly attested in the whole southern part of the Rhone basin, the possible Mesolithic/Neolithic contacts could take place only in the high basin and in the Northern Alps.
