Données récentes sur les habitats ruraux du premier âge du Fer en Centre-Ouest

Abstract : This paper aims at reviewing the situation of west-central France countrysides occupation between the ninth and the fourth century BC. The development of rescue archaeology has only recently enabled us to clarify the question of the countryside occupation during the first half of the first millenium BC. Nowadays, the multiplication of operations and the opportunity to intervene on large surfaces favour many possibilities not only to understand the organisation of the Early Iron Age rural settlements, but also to discuss their productions and interactions with their natural environment. In Poitou and Charentes, the architectural patterns are still based on those of the Bronze Age, but some new special features (including the construction of palisade enclosures) seem to be emerging. From a spatial point of view, the results show a much denser network of sites which may be the sign of the network established by the Gaulish populations since the middle La Tène.
