Structures de stockage du Bronze ancien et habitat du Bronze final dans la vallée du Clain : l’occupation protohistorique de la Viaube 1 à Jaunay-Clan, Vienne

Abstract : Archaeological evaluations were carried out before the construction of a large ZAC located in Jaunay-Clan, to the north of Poitiers, several of which led to preventive excavations. At la Viaube, the excavation led by INRAP brought to light storage pits, pits and post holes dating to the Early Bronze Age. Storage structures, sometimes reused as refuse pits, constitute closed and homogeneous sets, initiating a reflexion about Early Bronze Age material cultures. After a gap lasting several centuries the site is clearly reoccupied during the Middle Bronze Age and mainly during the Late Bronze Age. Fifteen post hole buildings, pits, storage pits and palisades form the settlement, which also includes a burial and a circular enclosure with interrupted ditches. Pottery and metal objects date the occupation to the middle stage of the Late Bronze Age (BF IIIa). This paper presents the main results of the la Viaube 1 excavation, with particular emphasis on pottery sets, storage structures and the vegetal economy during the Early Bronze Age, as well as the architecture and spatial organization of an open environment from the Late Bronze Age. The livestock management and meat-based diet in the Early Bronze Age are also discussed from the fauna remains. Hence, this Bronze Age site contributes to a better understanding of open rural sites, in a regional context where agriculture and livestock data are still very scarce.
