The Bay of bones

The museum of the Bay of bones is a reconstruction of a prehistoric pile settlement. Several underwater archaeological excavations have revealed fragments of 6000 wooden piles over an area of 8500 m, which suggests the presence of a pile-dwelling settlement of about twenty houses occupied between 1200 and 700 BC. A fair amount of material has been found such as flints, stone and bronze tools, pottery, some of which was perfectly preserved. But it抯 mainly the huge number of carved bones brought to different uses that gave its name to the site. The reconstructed settlement is built on a platform raising 1,5 m above the water, on which several houses stand, including two circular ones. The interior of the houses has been completed with skin animals and the reproductions of different material found on excavations.
I preferred this closer view of the village to an extended view of the site, which you can however see in the Workshop.

Le mus閑 sur l'eau de la baie des os est la reconstitution d抲n village lacustre pr閔istorique. Plusieurs fouilles arch閛logiques sous-marines ont permis de mettre jour les restes de quelques 6000 pieux en bois sur une surface de 8500 m, ce qui laisse supposer l'existence d'un village lacustre d'une vingtaine de maisons occup閑s entre 1200 et 700 ans avant notre 鑢e. De nombreux objets ont 間alement 閠 trouv閟 : des silex, des outils en pierre et en bronze, des poteries, dont certaines parfaitement conserv閑s. Mais c'est surtout la grande quantit d'os taill閟 pour diff閞ents usages qui a donn son nom au site. Le village reconstitu se compose d'une plateforme s'閘evant 1,5 m au-dessus de l'eau sur laquelle reposent plusieurs maisons, dont deux de forme circulaire. L'int閞ieur des habitations a 閠 reconstitu avec des peaux de b阾e et des reproductions des diff閞ents objets d閏ouverts lors des fouilles.
J抋i pr閒閞 cette vue rapproch閑 du village une vue plus g閚閞ale du site que vous pouvez n閍nmoins voir dans le Workshop.
