We are happy to present here a correspondence concerning the origin of the Great Bear, opening so a discussion on archoastronomy, with Elio Antonello, ENAF-Osservatorio di Brera, Merate, Italy, and member of the SIA (Societá Italiana de Archeoastronmia). This file contains:

1. Two articles of Elio Antonello, respectively intitled « Arcturus and the Bears » (in English), and « Far origin of myths and constellations : l’Orsa Maggiore » (in Italian)

2. « Some observations on the figure of the Bear » by Roland Laffitte  (in French)

3. The answer of Elio Antonello (in French and Italian)
