Chalcolithic near Perpétairi à Mollans

North in the Department of Vaucluse, near the famous Mont Ventoux, the valley of the Ouvèze is rich in prehistoric sites. It is near the confluence of the Ouvèze and Toulourenc, where during the first days of WW I the brothers Auguste and Louis Gatelan, found one of the largest neolithic tomb in the South of France. The inventary of this tomb have late been published in 1961 (Gallia préhistoire. Tome 4, 1961. pp. 192-205).

The two heavy patinated artifacts shown here, were found  some hundred meters south of the site and are probably related to the lithics of the Perpétairi à Mollans tomb.
