THE "ROND-POINT DE LA FAUCONNIÈRE" SITE AT GONESSE (VAL-D’OISE)
A New Cemetery Dating from the Beginning of the 3rd Century BC
in the North-East of the Paris Area

 

Abstract

A small funerary group dating from the 3rd century BCE (La Tène B1/C2) was excavated in 2009 at "Rond-point de la Fauconnière", Gonesse before a local government development. This site joins the several contemporary funerary sites already excavated in the area. The site, unfortunately badly preserved, consists of at least six burials several of which contained weapons. The study of these burials has revealed codified practices (the bodies were clothed and adorned before burial and carefully deposited in the grave, ...), that are characteristic of tribes of the North-East of the Paris region and Northern Gaul in general.
