La dernière phase d’occupation de la nécropole de Kôm Abou Billou : données archéologiques et anthropologiques inédites

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Roman necropolis of Kom Abou Billou was excavated in the 1930s and 1970s and rendered thousands of human remains that have never been studied. Since 2014 the excavation
under the direction of Sylvain Dhennin delivered remnants of exceptional conservation that
document funerary practices and biological data of a population still unknown in this field
in archaeological literature. Data from the first two surveys have already yielded results concerning the funerary selection of the necropolis and the health status of the population. They also highlight exceptional
cases, such as a multiple burial, possible witness to a particular event, previously documented
only by epigraphy
