Les géosciences au service de l’archéologie agraire. Une étude de cas sur les rideaux de culture de Goldbach (68)

Abstract : Lynchets correspond to talus slopes that are formed unintentionally at the top of hedgerows by the accumulation of colluvial deposits originating from eroded fields. They may represent highly extended parcellar surfaces, characterized by narrow plots, extending perpendicularly to the slope. The history of these plots and their dating are still largely unknown. Our results deal with a land patch of several hundreds of hectares located at Goldbach-Altenbach, in the Vosges (HautRhin). It could be determined on two cross-sections cutting the lynchets transversally that the parcellar plot was formed ca. 900 AD, after which the place was briefly abandoned during the Thirty Years War. The dating at ca. 900 AD suggests that this parcellar area was installed under the authority of the Murbach Abbey. The whole sector was indeed donated to the Abbey ca. 800 AD.
