Sacrifice ou geste nécrophobique ? Nouvelles perspectives concernant les pratiques funéraires hors norme en Égypte Prédynastique

Abstract : The Predynastic period is known for its variability on mortuary practices, but also for deviant burials that have been theorised but never fully explained. This work suggests an alternative vision to the regular arguments given by Egyptologists. In fact, some practices explained as human sacrifice, can be seen as ceremonials to prevent the corpse to harm the living.
