Suèvres "Les Sables"(Loir-et-Cher) : un habitat gallo-romain et un four de tuilier du Ier s. aux marges d'une agglomération secondaire antique (10-120 ap. J.-C.)

Abstract : A group of 1st century AD houses was discovered at the western limit of the small ancient town of Suèvres (Loir-et-Cher, France), along the road between Orléans, Tours and Blois which is thought to be Roman. It includes three parcels of land each of a minimum area of 900 to 1,500 m2 and containing domestic remains (cellars, wells, garbage dumps). Located on the outskirts of the town, this series of parcels follows the general directions defined by the road. Although this road was not precisely dated during the excavation, the building techniques used in its oldest phase are definitely of Antiquity. A tile kiln was also discovered along the route. It seems to have been mainly devoted to the production of tegulae, which were used locally both in the houses excavated on the site and in the nearby town. The kiln’s production was short lived as was the settlement, which was gradually abandoned between 30/40 and 60/70 AD, and totally deserted before 120 AD.
