Abstract : COASTAL EVOLUTION AND HUMAN OCCUPATION OF THE LOWER ARGENS VALLEY (VAR, FRANCE) DURING THE HOLOCENE Between the metamorphic massifs of the Maures and the Esterel, the lower Argens valley is a silted Holocene ria. This alluvial plain and its margins are attractive areas for human societies since the Neolithic. Following the foundation of the Roman colony of Forum Iulii during the first century BC, a military and commercial harbour is built, while the occupation of the plain increases. Combined to other published palaeoenvironmental and archaeological data, the sedimentological, micropalaeontological and palynological analyses of two sedimentary cores allow to follow the evolution of the shoreline and the transformations of coastal environments during the gradual filling of the ria. The spatialization of the palaeoenvironments combined to archaeological data about land occupation lead us to propose palaeogeographical reconstructions of the lower Argens valley from the Neolithic to the Roman period. The results allow to understand the dynamics underlying the morphological evolution of the delta and to grasp the interactions of natural processes and human interventions in the shaping of the lower Argens’ landscape.
