Mise en évidence dans le nord-ouest du Gabon de la présence de l’Homme au sein des forêts d’âge Holocène

Journal of African Archaeology, Vol. 4 (1), 2006, pages 143-152, DOI 10.3213/1612-1651-10067


Abstract
Une présence humaine vieille de 40.000 ans a été mise en évidence dans le nord-ouest du Gabon. L'analyse du paléo-environnement en complément aux travaux archéologiques a permis de proposer la présence d'un milieu forestier depuis au moins 6000 à 9000 ans. Ceci laisse penser que les populations tardives de chasseurs-collecteurs et les premières communautés villageoises ont effectivement vécues en forêt. Cette étude de cas est, pour le Gabon et pour l'Afrique Centrale forestière, la plus vieille trace directe d'une association milieu forestier – habitats humains couvrant plusieurs millénaires.

Résumé
Evidence of human occupation reaching back to 40,000 years ago in North-West Gabon has been identified. A paleo-environmental study coupled with archaeological research show that forests have been present for at least 6,000 to 9,000 years and therefore the last hunter-gatherers and early villagers lived in a forest environment. This case study presents the oldest direct evidence linking human settlements with a forest environment lasting several millennia for Gabon and the forested part of Central Africa.
