Nourrir les morts : les poteries associées aux défunts dans le cimetière néolithique KDK23 (Ve millénaire av. J.-C., Soudan)

Abstract : In the area of Kadruka, in Sudanese Nubia, almost twenty Neolithic cemeteries from the Vth millennium BC have been identified. The current excavation at KDK 23 has already provided more than 130 burials, almost all individual. The often wealthy grave goods consisted on non-used or even objects made for funerals, except for the ceramic pots that played a specific role. Taken from the household, they are above all containers; the inclusion of additional items such as spoons, small bowls or feeding bottles, inside pots associated with infants indicates that they indeed contained food for the dead. It was supplies for the last journey.
