Pollen analyses carried out in the Armorican Massif have already drawn our attention to the early appearance (at the end of the Mesolithic period/beginning of the Neolithic period) of several taxa, particularly Cerealia. New studies conducted in the Val de Loire region of France and in the surrounding tributaries seem to confirm these initial findings. These studies also provided more information about the introduction of Fagopyrum and Juglans at about 6000 BC. We hypothesise that 'pre-domesticated' agriculture took place in this area at this time and that it might have been brought to this area by southern migration. © 2002 Académie des sciences/Éditions scientifiques et médicales Elsevier SAS.
