Gestes, savoir-faire et décisions : regards technique sur l'évolution de la production de parures en verre au second âge du Fer.

Abstract : Made of raw glass imported from the Middle East, the production of glass in La Tène societies reached its peak in the 3rd and 2nd centuries B.C. With the production of beads and bracelets, glassmakers specialized in the first glass workshops of continental Europe in a moment of social and economic transformation during the Late Iron Age. In order to understand the materials and human resources involved in the production of La Tène glass jewelry, an experimental project was started in 2009 bringing together glass-makers and archaeologists. This article aims to present the technological methods that have helped to understand how La Tène glass-maker knowledge has evolved. Combining an ethnoarchaeological and experimental referential, this approach allows us to reconstruct a realistic hypothetical chaîne-opératoire for almost all types of La Tène glass objects. Understanding the procedures and the technical implications behind the different types of glass ornaments highlights the technical evolution in glass production during the Late Iron Age. It reveals the economic choices involved in this evolution providing extra data in order to comprehend the mobilization of societies in a specialized production of glass objects only dedicated to prestige adornments.
