Exclus du droit à la sépulture : image d’un groupe social au Moyen Âge (Poitiers; dernier quart VIIIe siècle)

Abstract : In the eastern area of Poitiers, occupied by crafted installations by the eighth and ninth centuries, eight young individuals –preadolescents, adolescents and young adults– have been discovered in a silo, having served as a garbage dump. The first six bodies have been brutally and successively dumped into the emptied pit. The seventh individual has been set down in a sitting position. The bodies showed signs of malnutrition, growth delay and markers of occupational stress. Five individuals also showed after-effects of traumas. The reconstitution of life conditions attests the exploitation of a servile young workforce who has been deprived of burial.
