De l’agglomération antique de Cassinomagus au village de Chassenon (Charente) : un bilan des connaissances

Abstract : This article represents an opportunity to draft a developed and detailed assessment of the major advances in knowledge, provided by the last eight years of research, and pertaining to the Cassinomagus agglomeration. Indeed, two successive Collective Research Projects (CRP) have deepened, and in some cases even renewed, our understanding of this site whose occupation would appear to be attested to the Second Iron Age onward. A diachronic study, which implements both a global and interdisciplinary approach, allowed us to confront the question of the evolution of the urban structuring of this ancient site. A functional organization of the site’s various neighborhoods around a well-established road network, including a densification of habitat and a diversification of artisanal activities emerged during the 1st c. AD. The peak of its monumentalization during the 2nd c. AD –accompanied by a reorganization of the urban fabric– allowed us to question more broadly the role of urban concentration in the structuring of community in the Lemovices civitas. Beginning in the 3rd c. AD, the site subsequently experienced a gradual decline, though consideration of the impact of its location near the border endured thanks to historical research carried out within the parish of Chassenon.
