L’habitat et l’occupation des sols à l’âge du Bronze et au début du premier âge du Fer

Abstract : The Bronze Age cultures have long been arduous for archaeologists to determine because of their diverse manifestations and tenuous remnants. It took more than 25 years of rescue archaeological research to understand that the Bronze Age is very likely a key period in the emergence of pre-state hierarchical societies and in the construction of our environment. This publication is a first national synthesis, region by region, of a research program still in progress, the “Bronze” national survey. This work of processing and interpreting archaeological and palaeoenvironmental data made it possible to assess the status of rural installations, to measure the ties that unite these spaces to form a network of settlements and to systematize the symbolic appropriation of places by these communities. This work also highlights the place in which natural environments are often considered, wrongfully, as marginal, in the early days of the diversification of socio-economic systems.
