THE GAULS ARE IN THE PLAIN

 

Abstract

Following on from the work of the l’association Jeunesse préhistorique et géologique de France (JPGF), preventive archaeology excavations during the last 20 years have documented a significant number of sites dating to the Late Iron Age in the Crould Basin and in the Morée (Val-d’Oise and Seine-Saint-Denis). The excavations were carried out prior to the extension of the Roissy Aeroport and on an industrial site in Gonesse, in a vast quarry in Plessis-Gassot and prior to the building of roads (Gonesse/Villiers-le-Bel bypass, Francilienne). Further south, two sites at Bobigny and Pierrefitte-sur-Seine/Saint-Denis have seen large-scale excavations. Until recently, publications have mainly focused on the funerary finds dating to the 3rd century, the domestic contexts having been put to one side. A necessary adjustment now needs to be made.
