Espaces funéraires et mobiliers en Champagne-Ardenne durant l'Antiquité tardive

Abstract : This article attempts to demonstrate the criteria used in the organization of funerary spaces at the end of Antiquity. Among those elements that structure the funerary space, the enclosure trench, understood as a delimiting characteristic or a place for the deposit of objects, seems to have been of decreasing importance. The age of the deceased affects the choice of siting of the grave and treatment of the body, while deposits of grave goods seem little linked to the age of the deceased. An exception to this observation is objects of apotropaic value, which are more frequently found in the graves of the young. On the other hand, gender seems to play a role of little importance and has little influence on the composition of deposits of terracotta and glass objects. Slight differences are seen however in drinking ware, which are frequent and of greater volume in the graves of deceased males.
