Les fours dits « en cloche » du début de l’âge du Fer au changement d’ère (XIe-Ier s. av. J.-C.) : entre terre crue et terre cuite, dispositifs de cuisson fixes ou mobiles. Reflet de choix socio-culturels des sociétés méditerranéennes ?

Abstract : Among the raw clay constructions regularly discovered by the archaeological researches, the “bell-shaped” oven holds a special place, since it is directly involved in the culinary practices of the considered populations. It is still used nowadays by several populations around the Mediterranean, mainly to bake cakes and/or unraised breads but is known since the Neolithic. The comparison of data (terracotta figurines, iconography, written sources, ethnography, archaeology) shows its universality as soon as the first Millennium BC at least, whether on protohistoric sites, but also on Greek, Punic, Etruscan or Roman sites. However, the fixed or mobile characteristic of the oven depends on the materials choice and the employed techniques (raw clay or terracotta) in its manufacture, as in the finishing treatments. But, as a corollary, this could also explain some of the sociocultural choices regarding the culinary practices of these various Mediterranean societies, or even indicate influences from one toward the other, cultural transfers or any craft mobilities.
