THE END OF THE 4th MILLENIUM BC IN THE PARIS BASIN

THE RECENT NEOLITHIC BETWEEN THE RIVERS SEINE, OISE AND MARNE (3500-2900 BC)

Edited by Richard COTTIAUX and Laure SALANOVA 

 

The "Seine-Oise-Marne" Neolithic cultural complex has not benefited from any new analysis since the work of Gerard Bailloud in 1974. Few assemblages from collective burials have been comprehensively studied, and many aspects of domestic life still remained to be documented.

This volume aims to overcome these lacunae, by presenting a series of thematic studies originating from the regions of Picardie, Ile-de-France and Champagne. These studies were undertaken in the framework of a Collective Research Programme (PCR) of the French Ministry of Culture between 2001 and 2008. We present here the latest achievements of this programme, drawing on recent research results which take into account all relevant aspects of material culture, including the diverse contexts, both domestic and funerary, in which they were found.

Ultimately, this volume proposes a synthetic picture of the recent Neolithic period in the Paris basin, during the second half of the 4th millennium BCE (-3500/-2900). The comparative study of the assembled data leads us to refine the chronological framework of the period into three stages. Moreover, the characteristics of the assemblages enable us to outline the development of three regional facies during the middle phase of the recent Neolithic.

THE CHATEAU OF ROISSY-EN-FRANCE (VAL D’OISE)

ORIGIN AND DEVELOPMENT OF A SEIGNIORIAL RESIDENCE IN THE PAYS DE FRANCE (12th-19th CENTURY)

Editec by Jean-Yves DUFOUR

 

Archaeological excavation of the Roissy-en-France castle has provided the first opportunity for a complete study of the creation of an earth-work fortification and its progressive transformation within a non-fortified residence.Between the 12th and the 18th centuries, seven stages in the evolution of this aristocratic residence have been observed: two timber-post dwellings are succeeded by a fortified house, a tower, a manor-house or "hostel", a classic stately-home and finally a country-house well-known to art historians. Occupation continues in the farm-yard during the 19th century. Excavation concerned all the main buildings but also 3000 m² of the farm-yard, a rare opportunity to examine a too-often neglected or hidden aspect of a castle. Archival evidence related to the site and the Roissy domaines, pottery and animal bone assemblages, metal and glass artefacts, seed identification and geo-archaeological analyses (mortar, soils, phytoliths) are presented by chronological phase. In addition to the archaeology, the present publication addresses the Roissy lords’ history, their economic and cultural connection with Paris and their relationship with close-by royal power in the Ile-de-France.

THE LATE BRONZE AGE CREMATION CEMETERY AT CHÂTEAU-LANDON "LE CAMP" (SEINE-ET-MARNE)

Directed by Emmanuelle du BOUËTIEZ de KERORGUEN, Sylvie PLUTON-KLIESCH and Daniel SIMONIN

with the collaboration of Bernard GRATUZE, Jean-Marie PERNAUD and Anne TRESSET

 

The cemetery at Château-Landon "le Camp" was excavated in 1996-1997 prior to the building of the A77 motorway. It is situated in the south-east of the Paris basin on the eastern border of the Gâtinais beauceron plateau on a spur that dominates the confluence of the Loing and Fusain rivers. The grave goods of the 53 cremations burials date the cemetery to the middle phase of the Late Bronze Age or more accurately to the last decades of the 12th century BC and the first half of the 11th century BC. The typology of the tombs suggests a hierarchy based on their relative intricacies and on their material wealth. It is also possible to perceive in the tombs’ layout an evolution over a relatively short period time. This cemetery bears similar traits to others that are of a slightly earlier date. Indeed, data from funerary contexts in the south-east of the Paris basin including evolving practices, the stylistic renewel of the pottery and land occupation shows a smooth transition from the early to the middle phase of the Late Bronze Age. This analysis brings into question the diffusionist hypothesis that the "Rhin-Suisse-France orientale" styled pottery originating from the innovative pole centred in the Middle Rhine valley swept across Northeastern Europe towards the South-West. It invites us to reconsider this question from a different perspective by taking into consideration more local evolutionary dynamics.

BRONZE GAULISH COINAGE FROM ILE-DE-FRANCE 
Overview of coin mintage and circulation

By Bruno FOUCRAY and Alain BULARD (†)

The bronzes minted by the Celtic tribes of the Ile-de-France region have not been the subject of a comprehensive study in spite of their importance for the Celtic economy. Many of the monetary types have so far remained of uncertain or erroneous attribution. However, this detailed overview of the new finds and older discoveries has provided material for a more precise cartography and identifications that are more assured. The book contains a commented catalogue of Parisii, Meldes, Carnutes and Sénons potins and bronzes in which data is cross-analysed using a metrological approach. A regional numismatic landscape emerges that is much more structured and coherent, from both a territorial and a chronological point of view. The distribution of coins on the smaller settlements demonstrates the essential economic role played by bronze coinage. Its iconographic, metrological and geographical interactions, as well as the identification of some of the workshops and overstriking and imitation practices, are all elements that contribute to its richness and complexity.

LATE IRON AGE RURAL SITES IN THE CROULD BASSIN
(VAL-D'OISE AND ITS MARGINS)

Directed by Caroline TOUQUET LAPORTE-CASSAGNE

 

Over the last twenty years, the development of preventive archaeology has led to important discoveries dating to the Late Iron Age (5th-1st century BC) in the Crould Basin, an area to the northeast of the Parisii territory. The large-scale development of this area including the building of roads and industrial parks, open cast mining, and the ongoing development around Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport has led to the discovery of 60 or so rural sites that have considerably enriched our knowledge on how society was organised during the Late Iron Age in the north of Île-de-France.With the many research projects about land organisation and population growth during this period currently in place, it has become necessary to publish discoveries made in this area in the form of overviews of sites and their finds. 36 authors from seven bodies involved in archaeological research have participated in this project. This cross-institutional publication sheds new light on land management and on the social and economic mutations of this transition period of History.

PROCEEDINGS OF THE CRETEIL CONFERENCE

June 3rd-4th 2010

DYNAMICS OF SETTLEMENT, HABITAT AND CULTURAL INFLUENCES
IN THE SOUTH-EAST PARIS AREA FROM THE EARLY NEOLITHIC TO THE MODERN PERIOD

Edited by Djillali HADJOUIS and Stéphane ARDOUIN

 

In recent years, the Val-de-Marne departmental council has organised two cultural and scientific events based on the theme of migrations. As part of this initiative, the departmental archaeology service has also contributed by communicating recent regional archaeological research on the subject to a wide public. In 2008 an exhibition presented "Animal and human migrations, a journey over continents". A conference organised the 3rd and 4th of June 2010 concerned "Dynamics of settlement, habitat and cultural infl uences in the south-east Paris area from the early Neolithic to the Modern period". The proceedings comprise the present volume. The conference was organised by the departmental archaeology service, represented by Djillali Hadjouis and David Coxall, in conjunction with the state offi ce for archaeology in the Ile-de-France region, represented by Alain Bulard. The two-day conference attracted a wide audience drawn from the various professional and volunteer archaeological institutions and organisations of the region.

Of the 35 presentations at the conference, 16 have been retained for publication in this volume. The articles are organised by chronological period from the Middle Palaeolithic to the early 20th century. Drawn for the most part from recent unpublished studies and excavations, the articles provide an up-dated view of archaeology in this area of the Ile-de-France.
