Mesolithic dwelling structures from methodological approaches to archaeological interpretation

Abstract : The study of Mesolithic settlements is a key aspect to understanding the articulation of social and economic organizations of the last hunter-gatherers. Analyzing the spatial organization of settlements increases indeed our knowledge of activity areas, subsistence strategies, seasonality of occupations and social organization. At another “reading” level, spatial organization is a direct reflection of a “Weltanschauung”. It necessarily reproduces the links between humans and non-humans, both in the material world and elsewhere. Describing a Mesolithic habitat means gaining access to a form of world organization: obviously, the process is anything but simple!
