Archéologie des chasseurs-cueilleurs maritimes de la fonction des habitats à l’organisation de l’espace littoral. Actes de la séance de la Société préhistorique française, Rennes, 10-11 avril 2014

Abstract : Anthropologists have long paid particular attention to maritime hunter-gatherers because of the wide variety of social organizations they developed all over the world, as well as the diversity of their technical systems, whether for fishing, food preservation or storage. At the same time, archaeologists focused their attention on the very emblematic shell middens in coastal or estuarine sites, which often combine dumps, graves, homes and areas of daily activities. In Europe the recent resumption of exploration of those sites has shed light on all their informative potential for answering questions about the relations between humans and their maritime environment. This new dynamism in research is further buoyed by the diversification of archaeology-related disciplines, which provides different views of these exceptional remains. The Rennes workshop that took place in April 2014 enabled archaeologists from several countries to make assessments in all latitudes and along all the oceans. They revealed that the sites could not have been conceived outside of wider economic and social networks. This publication also provide an opportunity to reflect on the role of these very special human groups during the Prehistory of our species.
