« Un établissement rural et un ensemble funéraire antiques à proximité de la villa du “Gué des Grands Buissons” : le site de “la Cornaillerie” et “les Grivaudines” à Neuvy-Pailloux (Indre) »,

Abstract : In 2010, a rescue excavation in advance of road widening took place at Neuvy-Pailloux (Indre) over a 5 745 square yards area. Roman rural settlement with necroplis was partially uncovered. Ditches and fences delimiting narrow plots are the main finds. Buildings identified are related to both housing and agricultural activities. The plan of one of these buildings is very similar to those of barns located in the Villa’s pars rustica. Several built enclosures with cremations illustrate the burial ground. The archaeological environment of the site is peculiar as, in a radius of 100 m, a late La Tène moated enclosure, an aristocratic burial circa 40-50 AD attached to the Fléré-La-Riviere’s group, and a Villa with peristyle of the 2nd and 3rd century AD have been identified. The study of these remains confirms that they are related. Results from the excavation specify the chronology of human settlements in this area and complete the data concerning the exploitation of the land attached to the Villa.
