Les structures pastorales en milieu préalpin (Alpes-Maritimes) de l’âge du Fer à la fin de l’Antiquité : bilan des connaissances archéologiques, apport des études paléoenvironnementales et de l’analyse spatiale

Abstract : In today's Alps-Maritimes department a variety of dry stone enclosures have been inventoried since the late nineteenth century on the Southern pre-Alpine high-lands. The function of these structures can be varied. If many of them have been interpreted as settlements occupied during the Iron Age and early Roman periods, either as simple hamlets or veritable oppidum, there remain some exceptions to this classification. Their morphology, their size or their position in the landscape has led us to wonder about their possible use in pastoral activities and their place in the production systems of the Iron Age and Roman periods. These likely stables are located along ridge lines, and are poorly dated but seem to have been long lasting. They could also be complementary to other types of development that are still to be defined. Morphological presentation, as well as observing their chronological and spatial distribution allows us to review the knowledge of the pastoral system in the Iron Age and the early Roman period in these mountain areas, located in the Eastern part of the Gallia Narbonensis and the Maritime Alps, showing a pastoralism based on daily herd movements covering short distances along drones, and grazing on land near the villages
