Ensilage et artisanat du fer entre le Hallstatt D3 et La Tène ancienne à Weyersheim (Bas-Rhin). Premiers résultats

Abstract : The site of Weyersheim « Les Hauts de la Zorn » (Bas-Rhin), excavated in 2014 by the Inrap, delivered for the first time in Alsace the remains of a forging workshop on a site occupied at the end of Hallstatt period and the beginning of La Tène period. In addition to the discovery of numerous silos, having delivered typical ceramic and metallic artifacts, two structures (silo 1003 and pit 1014) localized at the southwest are distinguished by the impressive amount of metallurgical wastes (110 kg of smithing wastes including almost 280 smithing slags). The analysis of the metallurgical waste revealed a post-reduction work, from bloomsmithing to the shaping of objects. Lithic tools, as well as a large batch of granite anvils, were also found. This atypical discovery allows us to question the place of metallurgy in Alsace in the 5th century BC.
