Abstract

Evidence of human occupation in the NE of the Iberian Peninsula during the second half of the VII and the first half of the 6th millennium BC are scarce. Until recently, only two sites, Font del Ros and Bauma del Serrat del Pont have provided dates calibrated between 6767-6071 cal BC. Recent research in the Montsant massif (Tarragona) has provided new evidence of human occupations of the sixth millennium cal BC. The site of Coves del Fem has a very well preserved stratigraphy with different occupations attributable to this moment. At the higher levels, several occupations belonging to the first peasant societies, ascribable to the "cardial" facies of the Neolithic, are documented. The lower strata contain evidence of occupation of the last hunter-gatherers, and have provided dates covering the transition from the seventh to the sixth millennium BC. This paper analyzes the significance of the deposit in the context of the last Mesolithic groups of the region.
