The round table organised by the PCR CimMoNE (Les cimetières modernes dans le nord-est de la France/Modern cemeteries in north-east France) is opening a call for posters.

Theme of the round table: Collectieve management of modern death – Mass graves, rotting rooms and ossuaries.

The management of vas numbers of dead bodies and bones, over the long term in the day-to-day use of cemeteries, leads to specific actions that naturally require the creation of different types of structure. These structures can be rotting rooms, ossuaries or common graves that archaeology sometimes uncovers, or the mass graves described in the writings and iconography of the period.

Three main themes for the proposals:

  • mass/common graves
  • rotting rooms
  • ossuaries

Dates : From Wednesday 06 November 2024 to Wednesday 06 November 2024

Location : 14 Pl. Saint Pierre, 10000 Troyes
