La dernière phase d’occupation de la nécropole de Kôm Abou Billou. Données archéologiques et anthropologiques inédites

Abstract : The Roman necropolis of Kom Abou Billou was excavated in the 1930s and 1970s and ren-dered thousands of human remains that have never been studied. Since 2014 the excavation under the direction of Sylvain Dhennin delivered remnants of exceptional conservation that document funerary practices and biological data of a population still unknown in this field in archaeological literature. Data from the first two surveys have already yielded results concerning the funerary selec-tion of the necropolis and the health status of the population. They also highlight exceptional cases, such as a multiple burial, possible witness to a particular event, previously documented only by epigraphy.
