Jouer dans l’au-delà ? Le mobilier ludique des sépultures de Gaule méridionale et de Corse (Ve siècle av. J.-C. – Ve siècle apr. J.-C.)

Abstract : Among the objects deposited in graves, gaming devices evidence recreational activities. Our study covers Gallia Narbonnensis, Corsica and the South of Gallia Lugdunensis. We collected an exhaustive corpus of gaming material found with the deceased and we aim at analysing their set in usually well-dated contexts. We also aimed at defining extra-regional cultural trends, sometimes ancient, that may explain specific deposits. While some sets correspond to the complete panoply of one or more players, others seem to have more symbolic value and may reflect funerary beliefs and practices that could vary from one region to another of the Empire. We also investigate the function of these deposits and question the reasons of their disappearance from the graves of late Antiquity.
