AN EARLY NEOLITHIC BURIAL AT CORBEIL-ESSONNES
"La Montagne des Glaises" (Essonne)

 

Abstract

A concentration of vestiges dating to the Neolithic was discovered at Corbeil-Essonnes (Essonne) during an evaluation prior to the construction of the ZAC de la Montagne des Glaises. An individual burial with a funerary deposit and two oblong pits were discovered. The lithic and pottery studies of the grave goods date the burial to the Early Neolithic period - Late Rubané or Villeneuve-Saint-Germain, in addition confirmed by radiocarbon dating. This burial indicates the possible presence of a Neolithic settlement nearby and adds to the corpus of Neolithic burials in the Paris basin.
