THE "TARTRES" LATE IRON AGE FARM AT PIERREFITTE-SUR- SEINE/SAINT-DENIS
(SEINE-SAINT-DENIS, 2nd TO 1st CENTURY BC)

 

Abstract

The Late Iron Age farm at Saint-Denis/Pierrefitte-sur-Seine (Seine-Saint-Denis) « Tartres » is located in the Saint-Denis bassin on the sloping edge of the northern terrasse of the Rouillon Valley a manmade affluent of the Crould upriver from its confluence with the Seine. This rural settlement has a bipartite enclosure built ex nihilo during La Tène C2 and occupied for at least a century. Three chronological phases have been distinguished by the abundant pottery finds. The first two phases LT C2 / C2D1 and D1b are the richest. The farm practised animal husbandry on its marshy land since its foundation. The farm was restructured during the second phase. Even though it seems to be a wealthy established, it is not aristocratic, but seems to have belonged to an exchange network with the neighbouring sites of Bobigny, some of which are strictly contemporaneous.
