La fosse 1024 du Champ Redon à Valros (Hérault) et ses pierres sculptées du Néolithique final

Abstract : Pit 1024, discovered on the site of Neolithic habitat of Champ Redon in Valros (Hérault, Occitanie, France), has delivered several fragments of carved stones shelly limestone. These elements were present in secondary position and fragmented in the filling of this great structure interpreted as a cellar and dated from the very end of the 4th millennium. These fragments are, depending on the case, more or less shaped by size and staking or bush-hammering. The question of the possible function(s) of these stones, discovered in a domestic context, was tackled through parallels with known architectural or sculptural elements, in the South of France and in Spain. A first parallel is established with the Spanish carved stones of Serra del Mas Bonnet (Vilafant, Girona, Catalonia). For the most massive pieces, a comparison is also possible with certain indented slabs placed at the entrance of the Hérault dolmens, many of which are in shelly limestone.
