Regard sur la ville de la fin de l'âge du Fer : L'organisation spatiale interne de l'agglomération artisanale de Kergolvez à Quimper (Finistère) et de l’oppidum de Moulay (Mayenne)

Abstract : Due to a lack of references, the regions of north-western France centred on the Armorican Massif have long remained outside the scope of research on the subjects of urbanisation and settlements at the end of the Second Iron Age, a phenomenon that affects the whole of Celtic Europe. Major discoveries made in the last few decades have made it possible to make up for this delay and even to provide a significant number of sites excavated over very large areas. This work is based on two of these examples studied in the context of archaeological interventions prior to road works: the artisanal agglomeration of Kergolvez in Quimper (Finistère) installed among the Osismes and the oppidum of Moulay (Mayenne), which probably benefits from the status of chief town of the Aulerques Diablintes. After addressing the question of the characterisation of the Latin settlements, a comparative study of the two reference sites is carried out and aims to highlight the similarities or divergences encountered, in the chronology of the occupations, their general morphology, the nature of the developments and their spatial organisation. Putting the examples of Kergolvez and Moulay into perspective with other examples documented by archaeological research in the Celtic world then leads us to reflect on the question of the conception of Latin urban spaces, their implementation, their social morphology, their management and finally their status, particularly in the differentiation between fortified and unfortified settlements and to see the impact of the status of the site on the urban physiognomy encountered.
