Étude sur un monolithe – la dalle S12 au sol du monument de Gavrinis (Larmor-Baden, Morbihan)

Abstract : Dealing with a monolith extracted from one of the most famous Neolithic passage graves of the Carnacean area, this study approaches methodological issues concerning the recording of engravings, obvious or altered, and rocky supports in their intimate morphology that can contribute to the reading and interpretation of the signs. Different digital tools are tested, allowing a comparative exercise between all the results, particularly in terms of size, volumes and masses. Finally, the unexpected preservation of carbonized remains in crushed hollow of the broken edges led to a radiocarbon dating experiment that is included in an essay about the biography of an ancient stele.
