L’habitat du Néolithique final de Quinssaines, Le Bournadiau : approche spatiale et fonctionnelle d'un site au Nord-Ouest de l'Allier.

Abstract : A late Neolithic settlement was explored during excavations in the northeast of the Allier département, at Bournadiau near Quinsaines, in 2007. Despite erosion, the excavation revealed a ditch and traces of two buildings. The ceramic assemblage and the stone tool industry, partly imported from Grand Pressigny, illustrate the contacts between the inhabitants and the cultural groups from Western-Central (Artenac) and Northern France (Gord). An unusual deposit of seventeen Grand Pressigny flint objects, discovered in the foundations of a small building, provides information about the redistribution process of such products and shows that the site probably functioned in collaboration with the Grand Pressigny workshops area. Management of the imported raw material appears to have been an important activity on the site. The flint industry is analysed from typological, technological and functional points of view in order to gain the best possible understanding from this unique find.
