Vingt années de recherches à Oedenburg (Biesheim et Kunheim, Haut-Rhin) : un bilan

Abstract : This article reviews the research carried out by a French, Swiss and German team at the Oedenburg site (Biesheim and Kunheim, Haut-Rhin, France) since 1998. As most of these works have been published in three monographs, the aim here is to place this site in its environmental, archaeological and historical context and to guide the reader through the available bibliography. Located on the banks of the Rhine, opposite the former abandoned oppidum of Breisach, Oedenburg appeared in the first decade AD and developed under Tiberius around a military camp. The civil agglomeration that emerged during that period went on to have a long life, even after the soldiers left in 70. Its existence is indeed attested until at least the beginning of the 5th c., despite a temporary decline towards the end of the 3rd c. In the middle of the 4th c., a new and important fortification once again protected this area of the Rhine border. Contrary to common opinion, it is not certain that it is the Argentovaria agglomeration.
