Traces d'interventions anthropiques sur des restes osseux humains déposés dans un silo du haut Moyen Âge

Abstract : Excavation in 2004 of an early medieval settlement at the “La Confiserie” site in Villiers-le-Bel (Val-d’Oise) provided evidence, within a storage pit, of human bone remains which had sustained anthropic intervention. The frontal-bone of the first individual showed evidence of cutting and fragments of partiallyconnected human bones discovered at the bottom of the pit also carried cut marks. The present article considers the questions raised by this particularly rare, or even novel, type of deposit. A brief presentation of the discovery context is followed by identification of the marks observed and suggested interpretations for the actions responsible. Lastly, the practices revealed are considered with their historical and ethnological context.
