L'ensemble funéraire du second âge du Fer de la Grange Blanche à Courthézon (Vaucluse)

Abstract : The excavation led in Grange-Blanche revealed, among other elements, a group of structures dating back to the second Iron Age, and located outside any housing environment, in a very vast area which was nevertheless cultivated in border of a traffic lane : a small quadrangular ditch enclosure, two pits which received one or more deposits consisting of a complete vase in one case, and of three broken bowls in the other, and finally a cremation grave. This set already exists during the last three quarters of Third century BC. The rarity of graves in Provence during this period, except the necropolises of the Greek colonies, justifies this note. Besides, this group rises the question of a possible link between all these structures ; a link which would associate the strictly speaking funeral domain, with practices indirectly related to the funerary world, or more generally to religious demonstrations.
