NEOLITHIC AND BRONZE AGE OCCUPATION ON THE PLATEAU
AT QUINCY-VOISINS "ZAC DE TERNOY" (SEINE-ET-MARNE)

 

Abstract

The preventive excavation of the site of Quincy-Voisins "ZAC de Ternoy" (Seine-et-Marne) follows on from two positive evaluations carried out in 2004 and 2007. The excavation of a surface area of 21300 m2 brought to light features dating to the Early Neolithic (culture de Blicquy – Villeneuve-Saint-Germain), characterised by a large number of schist and terra cotta rings. Four deep pits either wells or citterns contained intentional animal deposits (suidae, mustelidae and bovidae) and the by-products of the manufacture of axe heads. Other more superficial features could relate to a more recent Neolithic occupation. An alternative interpretation of the chrono-cultural timeframe is explored based on the radiocarbon dates.
