2500 avant notre ère : l’implantation campaniforme en France méditerranéenne

Abstract : Around 2 500 BC, drinking beakers with a characteristic pattern appeared in diverse areas of Europe. They are frequently associated with other kinds of materials, like specific ornaments and weapons. This set defines what is called the Bell Beaker phenomenon. In Southern France, more than 600 sites are known. In this very rich European study area, it is possible to study the nature and origin of this phenomenon, and question its poten-tial exogenous components, its modes of establishment and development, and its rela-tionship with local groups that had already settled in the South of France. Consequently, a layout similar to the Greek colonization model of the Mediterranean coast is proposed
