La collecte du bois de feu dans le village néolithique d’Arbon-Bleiche 3 (lac de Constance, Suisse) : gestion du bois et déterminismes

Abstract : Firewood gathering is largely determined by the characteristics of the environment. Nevertheless, within the natural constraints a vast array of human behaviours can exist. These are particularly detectable in sites with a high temporal resolution, such as lakeshore settlements. Communities make choices according to technical, social, cultural and economic criteria which lead to specific transformations of the environment. The Neolithic site of Arbon-Bleiche 3 (Lake Constance, Switzerland) has allowed a description of these sets of choices and constraints in a context where determinisms, whether social (few nearby contemporaneous villages) or environmental (abundance of vegetal resources), are limited. Since the exploitation of firewood is part of a larger technical system, the anthracological study sheds new light on how Neolithic societies evolved in interaction with their environment
