DAILY LIFE AND CRAFT-WORKING IN MID-14th CENTURY:
The Cellar at 34 rue Greneta, 11 impasse Saint-Denis in Paris (2nd arrondissement)

 

Abstract

A medieval cellar was discovered in Paris’s 2nd arrondissement beneath a disused industrial building at the rear of the property at 34 rue Greneta. Rescue excavation revealed the cellar’s western extremity formed of three limestone walls with internal plaster rendering. The backfill contained a homogeneous finds assemblage comprising terracotta, pottery, glassware and animal bones both from meat consumption and craft-working. The assemblage was abandoned in the middle of the 14th century, when the area was developed as part of transformations to Paris during the reign of Charles V.
