Between 1997 and 2012, three archaeological tests took place in the former Dejean Barracks at 54 rue Jules Barni in Amiens. The latest project has several basement levels, which required deep excavation, so a preventive excavation was therefore prescribed by the state services. It allowed the discovery of some evidence of the High Empire, 178 burial graves of the Low Empire and some evidence of the modern era. The 2012 test led to the totally unexpected discovery of a brick kiln probably dating from modern times, whose lower part was in very good state of conservation. It is possible to link this structure with the construction of the city’s fortifications and with the areas where fuel and clay were extracted to make the bricks. Traduction : John Lynch.
