Mésolithique final et Néolithique ancien autour du détroit : une perspective septentrionale (Atlantique / Méditerranée)

Abstract : Several recent excavations allow us to identify, within the first components of the Portuguese Neolithic, some particularities that seem to represent a rupture with the "franco-iberian" Cardial. We can cite, for example, the abundance of arrowheads of segment type, the heat treatment of flint or even some pottery shapes and decorations which diversify dramatically on the transition from the 6th to 5th millennium BC ("bag-like shapes", the use of la almagra, varieties of impressed and incised techniques). In order to explain this recomposition of the Neolithic package in Southern Iberia, it seemed to us interesting to explore various African lines of evidence. It seems therefore that the recomposition of the Neolithic technological system is done both by the conjunction of elements of diverse origins and by local mutations, which is not in full accord with the rapid pioneer displacement often used to model the Mediterranean Neolithic
