ART RUPESTRE EN EUROPE OCCIDENTALE : CONTEXTE ARCHEOLOGIQUE ET CHRONOLOGIQUE DES GRAVURES PROTOHISTORIQUES DE LA REGION DU MONT BEGO. De la typologie des armes piquetées à l'étude des gravures schématiques-linéaires.

Abstract : With this work we propose a qualitative approach, aiming to reveal every archaeological evidence of a human presence and an engraving activity in the Mount Bego region (Tende, Maritime Alps, France), during late prehistory. The typo-chronological study of carved weapons provided a chronological interval starting about 3700 B.C. and lasting until the end of the Bronze Age. Nevertheless, the discovery of archaeological material prior to this interval compels to admit the possibility that some carved patterns, different from weapons, were made in Early Neolithic, requiring consequently a diachronic interpretation of the pecked carvings set. The finding of linear schematic patterns covered by some pecked engravings denies the hypothesis that only pecked carvings date of prehistory. It is possible to consider the continuity of the engraving activity, with a coexistence of the two techniques, incised and pecked, until the end of Early Bronze Age; for the later periods it is possible to consider a progressive disuse of pecked tradition, in favour of an increasingly present schematism. Although mount Bego inscription in alpine symbolic expression is incontestable, this research revealed also the importance of the iberian cultural influences on the region rock art, from Spanish Levantine macro-schematism to linear schematic art lasting until the end of late prehistory, passing by the Bell Beaker culture through its Spanish group Ciempozuelos.
