Détermination de la fonction d’une structure funéraire de crémation : l’exemple d’une structure de l’ensemble funéraire du Mas Carbonnel à Nîmes, Gard

Abstract : In 1992, the excavation of the funerary complex of Mas Carbonnel in Nîmes delivered several Antiquity burial structures (burials and cremations). One of them, a cremation deposit from the High Roman Empire consists of a masonry construction set up in a rectangular pit. It delivered 733,6 g of burned bones and has provided goods, consisting of about twenty ceramic vases, 59 perfume vases, and small furniture items (2 mirrors, elements from a small chest, needles and 9 coins). In 2010, a detailed study, based on the analysis of the spatial organization of the goods through a multidisciplinary approach (study of bone remains, ceramics, metal, glass artifacts, marquetry), was led to determine this deposit as a pit-pyre and retrieve the different steps and gestures of the funerary ritual.
