Les occupations néolithiques de Château l'Arc à Fuveau (Bouches-du-Rhône)

Abstract : The rescue excavation of the site of Château l'Arc (Fuveau, Bouches-du-Rhône, France) led to the discovery of a Middle Neolithic occupation mainly represented by storage pits along with other dug features pits and a few post holes. Though the ceramic artefacts display few characteristic features, it is possible to attribute them to the first half of the fourth millennium, as confirmed by the results of two radiocarbon analysis and the study of the flint industry. in particular, the latter concern a remarkable collection of 363 pieces originating from the same pit. Comparisons of this occupation with the data yielded by the archaeological evaluation of the neighboring site of Favary suggest a long occupation of this area of the Arc valley during the middle Neolithic period
