Chronique radiocarbone de la néolithisation en Méditerranée nord-occidentale

Abstract : The aim of this paper is to reassess the Neolithisation in North-western Mediterranean in relation to radiocarbon data. For this purpose, we have collected 471 datings, distributed among the seventh and fifth millennium before Christ. We first sum up the methodology we applied for our dating selection and the graphical representation mode we have chosen. The selected geographical area have allowed us to tackle, on the one hand general questions regarding the first farmers spread, and, on the other hand, on a more local scale of analysis, the chronological articulation between the cultural groups participating in the early Neolithic development. For instance, we investigate the problem of the first Neolithic spread and the possible contacts with the indigenous populations. About this last point, the chronological picture favours the assumption of various ways of expansion of production economy, although the mechanism in which this variety of cases has its origins are still poorly defined. Finally, the study of radiocarbon data, in a more restricted scale, has allowed us not only to validate the pre-established pattern but also, to suggest new hypothesis as for the chronology of the early Neolithic in North-western Mediterranean.
