Le Chasséen, des Chasséens… Retour sur une culture nationales et ses parallèles, Sepulcres de fossa, Cortaillod, Lagozza. Actes du colloque international tenu à Paris (France) du 18 au 20 novembre 2014

Abstract : In 1989, the first national symposium on the Chasséen, the focal and emblematic culture of the French Middle Neolithic, was held in Nemours, and the proceedings of the symposium were published in 1991. After about forty presentations, the authors of the symposium concluded that new approaches were needed to address this culture in order to go beyond micro-regional studies and segmented analyses by types of materials. Unfortunately, twenty-five years later, the situation does not seem to have evolved much: overviews are still rare or mostly limited to a specific aspect of material production, and our overall understanding of the Chasséen on a wider scale has made little headway. This somewhat pessimistic and undoubtedly debatable observation incited us to organize a second international symposium on this topic. It seemed important to us to review the situation and to attempt to pinpoint new avenues of research in order to renew approaches to the Chasséen. This second symposium was held at the INHA (Institut national d’histoire de l’art – National Institute of Art History), in the centre of Paris, from 18-20 November 2014, and brought together 150 participants from France and neighbouring countries. All those attending the symposium had ample opportunity to engage in constructive dialogue. These proceedings are a compilation of the texts from most of the presentations, organized around six main themes: the variability and coherence of regional expressions, the factors of unity during the Chasséen in time and space, exploitation strategies of food and resources in the environment, funerary rituals and practices, and lastly the chronology of the Chasséen in a European framework. All these contributions promote reflections on the significance of the term Chasséen today, twenty-five years after Nemours.
