Des Gaulois sur l’île Guennoc (Landéda, Finistère)

Abstract : During his excavations on Guennoc island (Landéda, Finistère) in the 1960’s, P.-R. Giot was mainly concerned with the series of megalithic monuments, but he identified remains belonging to other periods. The systematic re-examination of collections and publications, plus the use of a still unpublished thesis now reveal the richness of the second Iron Age field data and assemblage. The presentation of natural and historiographical contexts in the study will be followed by a presentation of the current investigation, leading to the analysis of the Second Iron Age remains: spatial organisation, buildings and assemblages (especially ceramics) allow synthesis of the Gaulish occupation of this island. Enlarged to a wider view, it shows comparisons with other insular sites of Finistère, furthering the characterization of the coastal populations of Western Gaul.
