Un boîtier de miroir portatif médiéval découvert à Rennes, place Saint-Germain

Abstract : Between 2015 and 2016, work to install the second line of the Rennes metro-VAL made it possible to operate in the city centre, within the medieval city, at the Place Saint-Germain site on one of the stations of the future line B. The excavation provided much information about the occupation of this district, from the few ancient traces, the creation of the suburb in the 11th century and its evolution until its destruction in June 1944. Located on the northern bank of the Vilaine River, the site, marked by the presence of wetlands, provided exceptional medieval furniture due to its diversity and state of conservation, particularly in leather and metal. Among this one, a small tin-lead alloy box that catches our attention here.
