Les productions de meules en grès de Fosses-Belleu dans le Bassin Parisien : typologie, chronologie, diffusion

Abstract : The ypresian Tertiary levels located in the centre of the Paris Basin present a specific layer of sandstone called ‘Fosses-Belleu’. This rock, characterised by black and white grains measuring less than a millimetre, was exploited from the Early Neolithic through Protohistory for saddle querns (both upper and lower stones). The introduction of the rotary mill resulted in an increase of « Fosses-Belleu » exploitation and distribution that reached a peak in Antiquity with production of rotary querns, water-powered millstones, and, interestingly enough, Pompeian mills. The end of Antiquity saw the end the exploitation of this rock for millstones.
