Le cimetière Saint-Michel de Toulouse

Abstract : A vast medieval cemetery was discovered in Toulouse during preventative excavations at the site of the Palais-de-Justice metro station, the Cité Judiciaire and the Allées Paul-Fuega. Nine hundred tombs were studied, integrating anthropological, taphonomic, typological and chronostratigraphic elements. The aim of the authors in this publication is to go beyond the history of a neighborhood through archaeological discoveries, to consider the birth and development of a funerary zone then on the edge of the medieval city, and to draw conclusions on the evolution of the status of cemeteries, funerary practices and the populations inhumed.
