Un hameau du Ve s. av. J.‑C. en Minervois : la Condamine (Villeneuve-Minervois, Aude)

Virginie ROPIOT, Katrina Anker and Alexa Stevenson


Excavated in 2008 thanks to a preventive archaeological operation in the municipality of Villeneuve-Minervois by Oxford Archéologie Méditerrannée, this site of La Condamine consists in a rural settlement occupied around the 5th century BC. The architectural elements testify of a presence of woodframe constructions. Analysing the distribution and the layout of the poles’ negatives allows to restore the frame of a hamlet. It is organised around a core of residential units with small constructions in their North and South. Some of the latter may correspond to granaries. Two periods of building have followed one another : one relative to a vast bi-apsidal edifice, the other to quadrangular buildings. Other structures linked to the functioning of the settlement have been uncovered, in particular a fireplace situated in a pit, an oven and a clay quarry.
