Le Néolithique du Morvan : état des connaissances

Abstract : The region of Morvan, in particular the granitic massif, forms a very large geographic area of which the prehistoric remains largely unknown. The situation regarding the zone lying between Morvan massif and the adjacent Serein, Arroux, A leine and Yonne valleys is very different. The lithic industry of several sites in Upper Morvan has demonstrated a first inhabitation during the Mesolithic and several hill sites occupied from the Middle Neolithic and during the Final Neolithic, including a probable enclosure on Mont Beuvray. Complementary studies in the A rroux Valley confirm a large expansion of the habitat and the erection of menhirs during the Middle Neolithic. Discoveries relating to the Final Neolithic are less numerous and more limited. The very rare cultural indications suggest the presence of the Chasséen, Néolithique Moyen Bourguignon, several groups from the Final Neolithic and Campaniform both in Upper Morvan and the massif 's peripheral valleys
