Abstract

The paper illustrates the first occupation phases of the ritual and funerary site of Saint-Martin-de-Corléans (Aosta, Italy) based on the reassessment of data from a new season of research carried out between 2007 and 2017. In particular, this contribution focuses on the description and interpretation of the Dolmen TII context, a monumental tomb featuring a complex sequence of ritual and funerary actions that took place from the Chalcolithic to the Early Bronze Age (ca. 2900-1800 BC cal.). The study of the funerary context has also been considered through a comparative analysis with dolmens of the Petit-Chasseur necropolis (Sion, Valais, Switzerland) due to the close analogies that exist between the two sites.
