Sphère d’interactions, complexe culturel : clefs de lecture de la variabilité géographique des expressions stylistiques du Chasséen

Abstract : Defined by a Languedocian researcher based on an eponymous site in Burgundy, the Chasséen has since been mostly recorded through the study of southern assemblages. This has contributed to the prevailing view that the South was its place of origin and the only real representative of this culture. However, the criteria of identification and the attempts to define, implicitly or explicitly, only the southern Chasséen as an archaeological culture have always failed to embrace all of its diversity. The development of periodization and the better control of chronology have not put an end to the inability to explain the stylistic diversity of Middle Neolithic pottery productions in the framework of archaeological cultures. Moreover, while the stylistic attributes of a same ceramic assemblage are studied independently of each other, it is frequently found that they present different distributions. The keys to decipher this stylistic diversity must be found in a paradigm shift. Stylistic attributes must be considered as reflections of ceramic productions and not as by-products of ceramic assemblages that are partly fortuitous associations. The analysis of their diffusion and their evolution enables us to propose hypotheses concerning the nature of the phenomena which generate the observed stylistic diversity and thus leads to a real cultural approach to the Middle Neolithic.
