Transitions socioculturelles lors de la fin de la civilisation de l’Oxus

Abstract : Issues of chronology and cultural evolution lie at the heart of the main themes of study of Protohistoric Southern Central Asia, especially for the transition period between the Bronze and Iron Ages, which can be dated in its broadest sense between 1800 and 1300 BCE. This is a key period in the evolution of societies in this part of the world, which witnessed the decline and disappearance of the Oxus Civilisation, and the subsequent formation of the Handmade Painted Ware Cultures during the late Bronze and early Iron Ages. The questions concerning the decadence, collapse and resilience of societies, approached here through an overview of the specificities of the changes that occurred within the Oxus Civilisation, allow us to question in a renewed way the processes linked to the disappearance and the formation of a civilisation.
