Mobilité et interculturalité en Arabie orientale durant la Protohistoire ancienne : la formation d'un ensemble culturel et d'entités régionales

Abstract : The Neolithic period in Eastern Arabia is atypical : No agriculture, use of Mesopotamian (Ubaid) pottery vessels from 5 500 cal. BCE but no local pottery production except in the Northern and Central Arabian Gulf. It is characterized by a subsistence economy based on the exploitation of domestic herbivores and dogs, on hunting, and on the intensive fisheries - often selective, specialized and sometimes even dangerous. The other notable feature is the density of the exchanges over long distances. In addition to the restitution of the exchange networks, at different scales, the question of the mobility of these Neolithic communities has been debated since the 1980s. However, local and micro-regional mobility patterns have only been proposed by scholars, but are more or less verified and verifiable in the data status, and methods
