Abstracts

Fortification systems from the upland settlement of Puech de Mus at Sainte-Eulalie-de-Cernon (Aveyron) during the Vth century BC. The research carried out between 1995 and 2000 on the Puech de Mus hilltop settlement (Sainte-Eulalie-de-Cernon, Aveyron) allows us to appreciate for the first time the evolution of several Vth C. BC fortified sites on the Grands Causses. In under a century, there is change from a rampart, comprised of internal facing combining stone and wood, to a palisaded wall, then a ditch and bank. These three associated successive access systems have been studied. The destruction of several of these defensive works by fire, along with the presence of several pieces of armament in the abandonment levels, evokes some dramatic events. The architectural information from the first burnt wall, with its internal beams, remind us of the Celtic world despite the site’s proximity to the Languedocian coast.
