Un sanctuaire rural antique au cœur d’une boucle de la Seine : le Sablon à Yville-sur-Seine (Seine-Maritime)

Abstract : A vast sanctuary dating from the 1st to 4th centuries AD, located in a loop of the river Seine between Calètes and Véliocasses not far to the west of Rouen, includes a succession of temple enclosures, built to the south of a ditch or moat that delimits a peribolos (1st and 2nd c. AD). It is preceded by an occupation that was not characterised. The chronological relationship between the various components of the sanctuary are missing. A settlement was established (2nd c. to middle of the 3rd c. AD) to the south of the peribolos, probably contemporary to one of the sanctuary’s occupation phases, represented by a small building and two u-shaped ditches fitted together, surrounding a wooden construction. This would have been a settlement or trading centre, or some type of inn. A scattering of refuse pits were later dug through these levels (first half to the middle of the 3rd c. AD). The temple was abandoned and knocked down between the middle of the 3rd c. AD and the 4th c. AD.
