The aim of this session is to trace the prehistory of both sides of the Channel, and the links between these areas, between two major technological revolutions: the introduction of agriculture to Britain and Ireland and the appearance of metalworking and its subsequent developments (4300-1150 BC). This original approach draws on two complementary traditions of research – one French, the other British – and on the results of 30 years of discoveries through commercial archaeology and of investigations into material culture and palaeoenvironment. This research calls for the writing of a comparative history of the cultures on either side of the Channel, emphasising the processes of cultural and technical transfer and environmental conditions that influenced their trajectories, and the hybridisation that resulted from regular two-way sea crossings. This history, which relies on the interdisciplinary nature of current archaeology, is also the history of identity: it unites our contemporary nations by demonstrating that they shared a common past. This session will focus in particular on flow of objects and ideas linking both sides of the Channel, the organisation of societies and territories which have supported these exchanges, the seafaring conditions and the evolution of coastal areas. At the time of the Brexit, it will be the opportunity to initiate a research agenda in order to tighten the links between Britain and the Continent.
