Les sépultures chasséennes en contexte d’habitat de plein air du site de Saint-Antoine II à Saint-Aunès (Hérault, France).

Abstract : This article on the Chassey site of Saint-Antoine II at Saint-Aunès (Hérault department) is focused on the funerary structures uncovered at this open-air habitation of the 303 ditched structures, 18 of them contained human remains. Within this corpus, we can distinguish simple narrow pits, dug to the size of the deceased and with an exclusively funerary purpose, and wider, circular structures that resemble domestic structures which may have been given a secondary use as a burial place for one or more individuals. We should also mention the discovery of another deposit, atypical due to the specific treatment of the deceased, which seems to have been in part dismembered and burned. The spatial distribution of these pits having yielded human remains in relationship to the domestic structures also suggests two organisational systems which are chronologically separate.
