"LES CABANES" OR "LES SAVOURNINS BAS" – ALIAS "LE VILLAGE DES BORIES" –
AT GORDES, VAUCLUSE
A conference with slide show given at the Musée des Arts et Traditions Populaires in Paris
in Jean Cuisenier's and Jean-Marie Pesez's classes (1977-1978)
18 - Group II: freestanding hut IIa
No precise function has been ascribed to this hut by Mr. Viala. Yet, what is left of a former hearth and chimney clearly points to the building having been used - or reused - as a dwelling.
19 - Ditto: view of the gable-wall façade
20- Former wheat-threshing yard
A large, flat expanse of outcropping rock can be seen at the back of Group Ia. A channel cut into the stone serves to evacuate rainwater.
