Abstract
Les communautes qui participaient a la sphere d'interaction Meadowood pendant la periode du Sylvicole inferieur (3,000-2,400 AA) furent parmi les premiers groupes a utiliser de la poterie dans le Nord-Est americain. Des fouilles archeologiques au site de Batiscan, effectuees dans les annees 1960, ont livre l'une des collections de poterie Vinette I les plus abondantes documentees jusqu'a ce jour. L'analyse de cet assemblage ceramique a revele que la poterie Vinette I n'est pas aussi homogene que l'on a tendance a le croire. En effet, des variations par rapport a la definition typologique existent autant a l'interieur d'une meme collection, qu'entre diverses collections ceramiques du Sylvicole inferieur. Certains elements diagnostiques, comme la presence de battoir corde sur les surfaces exterieures et interieures des vases et l'absence de decoration, sont remis en question par cette etude. Il se pourrait qu'une partie de cette variabilite soit chronologique et que le site de Batiscan reflete davantage la fin de la periode du Sylvicole inferieur. D'autres facteurs, comme la frequence de la production et la possibilite que certains vases aient ete echanges, doivent toutefois etre consideres lorsque l'on tente d'interpreter la variabilite de la poterie Vinette I.

Cooperative harvesting of aquatic resources and the beginning of pottery production in north-eastern North America

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors argue that pottery was used selectively for storing or processing valued exchange commodities such as fish oil, and that its use can be seen as part of broader developments in hunter-gatherer society, featuring seasonal gatherings, collective feasting and a new articulation of social relations.
