Les structures de combustion mésolithiques de la Pierre Saint-Louis (Geay, Charente-Maritime)

Abstract : The mesolithic combustion structures from La Pierre-Saint-Louis (Geay, Charente-Maritime) The authors present a detailed study of combustion structures excavated on the open-air site of La Pierre-Saint-Louis (Charente-Maritime, France). This stratified settlement was found in the course of the rescue archaeological excavations associated to the construction of the highway A-837. The distribution of some thirty structures recorded on 600 m2 coincides with the c h r o n o l o g i c a l concentrations. Charcoals collected in several structures give radiocarbon dates corresponding to a mesolithic occupation. A workshop providing a microlithic industry seems to be associated with the main concentration of hearths.
