The archaeological excavations held at Rue "Foraine de Hère", prior to the extension of a pebble quarry, yielded a series of occupations dating from the beginning of the early Protohistoric period to the Modern period. Furthermore, the Gallo-Roman period is characterized by an Early Empire settlement in the form of a network of ditches, large buildings on posts and a funerary area. This last contains the inhumation burials of two adults, and more significantly the burials of three perinatals in funeral urns. Although they had been buried in similar containers (pots of the Bayard 25 type) with evidence of funeral ceremonials and offerings, the study revealed certain differences in the way each infant had been interred. This discovery illustrates how enchytrismos was practised in the territory of the Ambiani. Traduction : Margaret & Jean-Louis CADOUX
