Dépôt d’outils, dépôt d’ovins dans un établissement rural antique à La Croix-Saint-Ouen (Hauts-de-France, Oise)

Abstract : The trajectory of the site of La Croix-Saint-Ouen is unique, set up in the second half of the 1st century BC. BC on a latenian substrate, it has several functions over time. Modest agricultural exploitation of its origin in the second half of the second century, it then becomes a career of extraction of grave then ends as discharge at the edge of the fourth century. Rural farming, which can be assumed to be farm-oriented, lasts more than a century. Like many others, it differs in revealing a snapshot of sheep farming including eleven animals, divided into two depots, who died of panic after a predator attack. This event may have led to the abandonment of the plot as an agro-pastoral area because a sand quarry takes place there. It is not possible to specify when this extraction of raw material was set up or when it stopped. What is possible to say is that a hundred years passed before this vast depression was backfilled with ashen sediment mixed with demolition materials, either in the first half of the fourth ap. It is also in this embankment that a deposit of 34 tools and 17 various objects stored in a crate has been discovered. They are a unique ensemble reflecting a craftsman’s trousseau largely linked to woodworking.
