D'exceptionnelles sépultures du Néolithique récent à Gougenheim (Bas-Rhin) - Institut national de recherches archéologiques préventives

D'exceptionnelles sépultures du Néolithique récent à Gougenheim (Bas-Rhin) - Institut national de recherches archéologiques préventives | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

Dans le cadre des opérations archéologiques préalables à la seconde phase de la ligne à grande vitesse Est européenne, une fouille menée entre août et décembre 2009 par une équipe de l’Inrap à Gougenheim, à une vingtaine de kilomètres de Strasbourg, a révélé plusieurs traces d’occupation datées de l’âge du Bronze et du Fer ainsi qu’un ensemble important de sépultures en fosses circulaires de la période du Néolithique récent. Cette dernière découverte est d’un intérêt majeur pour la connaissance des pratiques d’inhumations durant la période néolithique.

Ancient DNA suggests the leading role played by men in the Neolithic dissemination

The impact of the Neolithic dispersal on the western European populations is subject to continuing debate. To trace and date genetic lineages potentially brought during this transition and so understand the origin of the gene pool of current populations, we studied DNA extracted from human remains excavated in a Spanish funeral cave dating from the beginning of the fifth millennium B.C. Thanks to a “multimarkers” approach based on the analysis of mitochondrial and nuclear DNA (autosomes and Y-chromosome), we obtained information on the early Neolithic funeral practices and on the biogeographical origin of the inhumed individuals. No close kinship was detected. Maternal haplogroups found are consistent with pre-Neolithic settlement, whereas the Y-chromosomal analyses permitted confirmation of the existence in Spain approximately 7,000 y ago of two haplogroups previously associated with the Neolithic transition: G2a and E1b1b1a1b. These results are highly consistent with those previously found in Neolithic individuals from French Late Neolithic individuals, indicating a surprising temporal genetic homogeneity in these groups. The high frequency of G2a in Neolithic samples in western Europe could suggest, furthermore, that the role of men during Neolithic dispersal could be greater than currently estimated.

Empreinte environnementale : jeu de piste à travers les âges

Empreinte environnementale : jeu de piste à travers les âges | World Neolithic | Scoop.it

Photographie témoin d’un lieu, cliché révélateur d’une époque, l’environnement est sans cesse en évolution. Soumis de tout temps aux aléas climatiques, il est aussi façonné par l’homme depuis des millénaires.
Des recherches novatrices démontrent que le rapport entre l’homme et le territoire est bien une longue histoire. Du Jura à la Méditerranée, du Groenland au Sahara, les traces du passé exhumées du fond des lacs et des tourbières dressent des parallèles avec l’histoire et l’archéologie. Elles apportent les preuves tangibles d’occupations humaines, sources de bouleversements des paysages, de modification des écosystèmes, de pollution latente… Des éléments de connaissance éclairant d’un jour nouveau le passé pour mieux peut-être se projeter dans l’avenir...
