Description The beginning of the Vth millennium BC is marked by a restructuration of siliceous raw material circulation networks after their collapse at the end of the LBK. They are often considered more regional. This paper will be dedicated to exploring the various forms of distant contacts between communities thanks to lithic technology analysis. We will take different examples from the transition to Blicquy/Villeneuve-Saint-Germain in Northern France and Belgium and to the Hinkelstein/Grossgartach in Rhineland. From a methodological point of view, we will focus on the possibility to distinguish different kind of networks and their relevance to bring new insights into the social and economic organizations of these agro-pastoral populations.
