Abstract

A multidisciplinary study of the prehistoric settlements in eastern Tunisia was initiated in 2002 in the coastal environment of the Hergla territory. Several archaeological surveys, mainly around the Sebkhet Halk el Menjel lagoon, resulted in the identification of many sites, among which the Holocene rammadiya (maghrebian open air site) of SHM-1. The anthropic stratigraphy of this site was established from several test-pits, one trench and an extensive excavation. A comparative study of the different sections and excavated surfaces revealed several major occupational horizons dated from 14C dating of the second half of the 7th millennium to the second half of the 6th millennium cal B.C. The economy of the site is still Epipalaeolithic, linked to hunting, fishing and gathering activities. The material culture is composed of a strong capsian substratum. Some evidences of innovations are recognized along the occupational phases, possibly linked to the initiation of contacts with distant communities, as materialized for instance by the presence of Pantellerian obsidians.
