Évolution des relations homme/parasite/environnement au Néolithique : approche intégrée et premiers essais de spatialisation sur les sites lacustres européens

Abstract : The Neolithic period is characterized by profound societal changes, such as the transition from a hunter-gatherer to agropastoral livelihood, population growth, ranking, population movements, changing diets, and waste management. As part of this phD research work, we have focused on the impact of these changes on the diversity of parasites, particularly digestive helminths. The studied corpus includes several sites of humid contexts whose dates cover a period from 5000 to 2500 BC. Most of them correspond to lakeside settlements, which are well represented in Europe, and are excellent recorders of these changes, thanks to perfect preservation conditions in some cases. It appears that the cultural, but also environmental changes that occurred between the 6th and 3rd millennia BC, had consequences on the diversity of digestive parasites. Through several examples, this work aims to understand the mechanisms that allowed these parasites to become deeply rooted in the daily lives of human and animal populations in the Neolithic period. For some of the sites studied, the sampling strategy allowed spatialization of the acquired data. This original approach allows a better integration of the study of ancient parasites into archaeological issues
