Étude typologique, technologique et culturelle de la céramique du Petit-Paulmy à Abilly (Indre-et-Loire)

Abstract : For the Late Neolithic period, the Minimum Number of Individuals (MNI) and the Maximum Number of Individuals (MaNI) have been estimated by a qualitative and a quantitative study. Three typo-technical groups have been highlighted, probably a showing chrono-cultural distinction. A quantitative study of pottery morphology gives a good picture of the ceramic assemblage of the site. Raw materials used for the pottery production come from a local area. Twelve chaînes opératoires have been reconstructed in detail. A good correlation between pottery thickness, morphological types and technical characteristics confirms the validity of the groups constituted. The two ceramic assemblages of the site correspond to two different traditions which are present in a large area of Northern France, coming respectively from the east and the south. The very probable contemporaneity of these two assemblages in a lot of Late Neolithic sites in this area helps us to interpret these data. Taking into account all the technical, typometric and stylistic parameters, the attribution to a Neolithic culture is also discussed.
