rescue excavation undertaken in 2011-2012 in Jaunay-
Clan (Vienne) revealed a Late Antique funerary area consisting of a
pyre, a mausoleum and a large masonry building. The pyre yielded
significant accompanying goods, and is associated with a large
deposit of broken vases. The surrounding enclosure and the stone
pedestal undoubtedly correspond to the final construction of the
burial. In the mausoleum, the embalming of bodies and the use of
precious textiles (some of which are dyed Tyrian purple) provide
evidence of elite funerary practices in the Pictons civitas in the
3rd-4th c. AD.
