Chasse antique aux blaireaux en bordure d’une voie romaine à Cairon « Rue des Écureuils 2 » (Calvados)

Abstract : The excavation of a site in the sub-littoral zone north of Caen brought to light an unusual evidence of a badger hunt with the destruction of a badger set near a Roman road. The hunting included the obstruction of the entrance of the set with stone stoppers and hearths for smoking out the animals. The hunt seems have taken place in the second half of the 3rd or at the beginning of the 4th century AD. The use or the deposit of at least 44 small ceramic containers in the road’s ditch and in the badger set could be either a demarcation or simple management of the hunt.
