Évolution du silex taillé dans le Néolithique haut-rhodanien autour de la stratigraphie du Gardon (Ambérieu-en-Bugey, Ain)

Abstract : Based on the conclusive case of the cave of Gardon (Ambérieu-in-Bugey, Ain), the aim of this work is to give off the evolutionary framework of Neolithic lithic industries of Center-Eastern France. With a particularly developed stratigraphy for recent Prehistory, the cave of Gardon constitutes a site exceptionally favourable to this kind of analyzes. This thesis is organized in four principal parts, gathering sixteen chapters. The first is a general presentation of work (geographical and chronological framework). It also explains the concepts of the analyses as well as methodology employed. The second part consists of a state of knowledge on Neolithic lithic industries of the Rhone basin. The third is the analyses of 17.000 Neolithic flints of the cave of Gardon. Each layer was individually approached from a technological and typological point of view, with an aim of releasing the operational diagrams suitable for each layer. The confrontation of these results to those obtained on other aspects of the technical system and with the stopwatch-stratigraphic data allows to refine or to discuss again cultural attributions suggested. In the fourth and last part, the results obtained on the cave are confronted with the regional data. It is then possible to build a general evolutionary framework of lithic industries and, more largely, Neolithic cultural groups of Center-Eastern France.
