Un réseau de sites fortifiés du Bronze moyen autour du golfe de Lava (Corse occidentale)

Abstract : Although Corsica has a maritime fringe of 1,047 km, only a few Bronze Age settlements are known in its coastal zones. However, over the last forty years, the work carried out by Anne Roth, Gaëtan Congès and Laurent Vidal in the eastern plain (Sant’Agata, Mar’e Stagnu, Pinia) and by Joseph Cesari in the south-western part (Tanchiccia-Valdareddu) evidenced that settlement sites were established on both the coastal barriers and the shores of the brackish ponds. Nevertheless, this research, developed in an alluvial context, did not make it possible to define the structural and economic characteristics of sites the occupations of which are mostly dated to the end of the Early Bronze and to the mid-Middle Bronze Age. This deltaic progradation area forms about 30% of the island’s coastline. In the northern, western and southern parts of Corsica, the rocky shoreline represents 70% of the coastal territories on a strip only interrupted by the main rivers flowing along sandy beaches and deep bays.
