Vivre et mourir à Aix-en-Provence entre le XIIIe et le XVIIe siècle : l’exemple de la fouille préventive du cimetière des Prêcheurs

Aix-en-Provence - Sciences - Thursday 25 November 2021 at 6.30 pm.

La fouille archéologique de la place des Prêcheurs a mis au jour près de 350 individus inhumés entre le XIIIe et le milieu du XVIIe siècle. Le travail de l’équipe d’archéologues et de spécialistes ne s’arrête pas au strict prélèvement des squelette sur le terrain… Une longue phase d’étude, indissociable de la fouille, nous permet de connaître l’âge, le sexe, l’état de santé ou encore la condition physique de ces personnes, et de réintroduire ces informations "populationnelles" dans un contexte socio-économique et dans l’histoire de la ville d’Aix-en Provence.
