RECENT DISCOVERIES OF MESOLITHIC INHUMATIONS
This article presents five inhumations and a cremation burial dating from the Mesolithic discovered during five recent rescue excavations in the Île-de-France region, where data from the Mesolithic is rare. The burials contained no datable elements, so the radiocarbon dating was carried out on the bone matter, thus underlining the importance of such a method in dating isolated burials. The study of these new finds in relation to other known burials aims to renew interpretations of Mesolithic tombs and funerary practice in France.
