Le debat recurrent concernant la definition du Neolithique en Afrique requiert une meilleure connaissance des phenomenes de peuplement associes a l'adoption de l'elevage et de l'agriculture sur le continent. A partir d'une synthese des donnees archeologiques issues de plusieurs annees de prospections et de fouilles, cet ouvrage etablit une sequence de reference pour l'Holocene recent du Pays dogon (Mali), entre 2500 et 500 av. J.-C. Dans un contexte de recherches pluridisciplinaires, ce travail a ete realise avec l'objectif d'elaborer un cadre chrono-culturel permettant non seulement de restituer l'histoire du peuplement de la region a la fin de la prehistoire, mais egalement d'aborder les interactions entre nature et societes au cours d'une periode marquee par d'importantes transitions economiques et techniques. En decryptant les variations de la sequence du Pays dogon a travers une fenetre de comprehension etendue a l'echelle ouest-africaine, Sylvain Ozainne propose un scenario de peuplement de la bande sahelo-soudanienne pendant l'emergence des economies de production et apporte de nouveaux elements a la discussion sur le Neolithique africain. The ongoing debate regarding the definition of Neolithic in Africa requires a better understanding of the settlement patterns associated with the emergence of farming on the continent. Based on a synthesis of archaeological data from multiple years of surveys and excavations, this book provides a reference sequence for the Late Holocene of Dogon Country (Mali) between 2500 and 500 BC. Being part of a multidisciplinary research, this work was realized with the aim to provide a chrono-cultural framework for the late prehistory of the region, but also to address the interactions between nature and societies during a period marked by major economic and technical transitions. By deciphering the variations of the Dogon Country sequence through a window on the scale of West Africa, Sylvain Ozainne proposes a scenario for the peopling of the Sahelo-sudanian zone during the emergence of food production and brings new elements to the discussion on the African Neolithic.
