Description

Abstract:

Animal bones are one of the finds categories most frequently associated with northern French funerary structures. Between the early and late Neolithic, they encompass remains characterised by a striking variability, ranging from isolated, disassociated and fragmentary bones to, at the other end of the spectrum, whole bones belonging to partial skeletons or even more or less complete skeletons.

Through the different ways in which the presence of animals in the funerary space is articulated, I aim to elucidate the nature of these different kinds of deposits, to understand the representations and the symbolic system which underlie the practices associated with the deposition of animal remains in burials and to outline how the development of these deposits resonates with that of the funerary structures themselves.
