L'agglomération antique de Brion à Saint-Germain-d'Esteuil (Gironde). Organisation de l'espace, structures et formes de l'urbanisme

Abstract : Between 1984 and 1991, the antique site of Brion, localized in the Médoc (Gironde, France), was the site of a series of excavations and geophysical research. In 1990 and 1991, electrical surveys conducted on over 7 ha have identified dozens of buildings and some street sections. Magnetic surveys carried out in 2011 have complemented our knowledge of this small town. This second method has not only substantially increased our ability to detect remains which are very weakly buried, but also helped us to locate structures of combustion (furnaces, ovens) and concentrations of magnetic materials (burnt clay). The very good results of these studies underline the complementarity of the two geophysical methods implemented on this site. Combined with archaeological data, they allow us at the end to discuss surroundings and limits of the town, street network and town planning scheme.
