Les femmes en Champagne pendant l'âge du Fer (dernier tiers VIe- IIIe siècle av. J.-C.) et la notion de genre en archéologie funéraire

Abstract : This study intends to develop a new method based on the notion of gender for the analysis of funerary sets. First, this notion leads to reconsider archaeological categories of « female » or « male » graves. Indeed, the use of these categories is not justified from the funeral material data of Champagne area, owing to the fact that whole deceased people cannot be linked to these two appointments, the evidence being the significant amount of « undefined » deceased people. The notion of gender also allows to highlight diversified characteristics of the social identity of deceaseds realized into graves and sets of objects. Funeral representation of a deceased is realized according to his/her community recognition as gendered, aged and social classed individual. Therefore, the impact of these different factors on the funeral practices must be looked for. The establishment of a new graphic tool, la représentation semi-logarithmique, allowed to enhance the significance of the funeral hierarchical category of deceased people, which come in all sorts of several hierarchical levels in objets and jewels sets. In fact, all deceased people can be considered through the development of a method of analysis taking an interest in hierarchical funeral organisation. All women can be even taked taken into account, whether they were buried without any object, with jewels sets or in a wagon grave.
