Abstract:
It has recently been argued that a slow piecemeal adoption of the
Neolithic package by local hunter-gatherers is documented in coastal Alentejo by
a pattern of specialised functionality of settlement sites in the period between
6000 and 5000 cal BC: some would be temporary camps focused on foraging
activities while others would be base camps focused on agriculture. Careful
taphonomic analysis of the data shows the model to be empirically untenable:
the supposed Neolithic temporary camps are pure Mesolithic shell-middens; and
the supposed Neolithic base camp, Vale Pincel I, is an extensive, eroded site
where post-depositional disturbance created a palimpsest of late Mesolithic, epicardial
and middle Neolithic occupations. The ages between ca. 5400 and ca.
5600 cal BC obtained for the hearths radiocarbon dated at Vale Pincel I must relate to the Mesolithic use of the area. Such features are identical to those found
at the adjacent pure Mesolithic site of Vale Marim and present a pattern of exposure
through differential erosion of underlying Pleistocene sands known at
many other coastal Mesolithic sites (such as Ponta da Vigia or Palheirões do
Alegra). The typology of the Vale Pincel ceramics independently confirms that
the advent of the Neolithic in the area is no earlier than ca. 5000 cal BC.
