Les ensembles funéraires des IIe et Ier s. av. J.-C. en Île-de-France : état des lieux et perspectives de recherche

Abstract : A corpus of 85 facts and some 320 burials allows us to revisit the question of the funerary complexes and practices of the 1st century BC in the Île-de-France region. While the distribution of sites still reveals areas that are devoid of any information, other sectors are fairly well informed thanks to the decisive contribution of Preventive Archaeology. The majority of facts consist of a very small number of burials next to a few more developed complexes. The facts, their location, their relationship to rural or grouped settlements and roads, their organisation, enclosures, associated structures and the burials themselves are examined when they are preserved, which is far from always being the case. Cremations, burials and subjects buried in settlement are examined in turn, which constitute a very special class, from the point of view of structures, practices and furnishings. Among the contributions of this survey, it is worth highlighting the opposition between the Parisii territory in which burial is predominant, including for those with weapons (a region which moreover concentrates almost all burials in domestic contexts) and the Senon territory where cremation is the most common practice, amphora being used in many contexts. Beyond these two geographical poles, the region is characterised by a very wide variety of situations and practices that reflect a contrasting image of Gallic societies.
