Plan of the oppidum, settlement 1


Islet 29 is exceptional both in terms of the irregularity of its plan and the remains of craft activities. The latter generated a dumping area in a nearby courtyard. It is filled with abundant small glass objects and scraps of bronze, which were often offered ex voto.

The presence of two skulls (without mandibles) in a room of islet 30 has not been explained. The proximity to the hypostyle hall and the dumping area of islet 29 indicates a religious association.

This open-air space served as a dumping area for domestic and craft waste. Here we see fragments of pottery, animal bones, bronze scraps and glass beads.
