Abstract: 
Rispetto ad altre aree europee le pratiche funerarie del Neolitico Medio in Francia meridionale sono caratterizzate da un’altra proporzione di individui sepolti in strutture domestiche all’interno di insediamenti. Il contributo si propone di caratterizzare tali resti umani, discutendo, fra l’altro, la natura delle deposizioni (che veicolano un’attitudine positiva oppure negativa verso i defunti) e la presenza dei morti nello spazio occupato dai vivi.

Compared with neighbouring European areas, Middle Neolithic funerary practices in Southern France are characterised by a high proportion of individuals buried in domestic structures of settlements. The purpose of this paper is to characterise these human remains while discussing, among other things, the nature of the burials (conveying a positive or negative attitude towards the deceased) and the presence of the deceased in the space occupied by the living.
