Renouvellement des outils informatiques pour l’enregistrement et l’étude des sépultures collectives. Échanges méthodologiques

Abstract : For nearly seven years, computer tools related to data geo-referencing (photogrammetry, GIS, 3D models) have become considerably more democratic in the way of a greater accessibility of software dedicated to data acquisition and processing. In the archaeological field in particular, a policy of setting up high-performance dedicated software, paired with the implementation of support services, referents and training, now allows archaeologists to incorporate fully the use of these tools into excavation and study strategies. In the field of funeral archaeology, these software products have met with great interest (seminars of the "ISA" network in 2013 in Pessac and "EVENA" in Tours in 2015), fully justified since they touch on the very object of contemporary archaeological practice, i.e. the recording of the remains in order to analyse their spatial distribution. Such tools are particularly valuable for the study of collective burials. In particular, they allow the recording and exploitation of a very large amount of complex data, the processing of which previously posed a high hurdle even in terms of feasibility. Many feedbacks on the excavation of such contexts are now possible. They probably reflect different successes, as it is generally the case in such phases of major methodological renewal, but they are above all tools for developing cross-disciplinary issues at the site level. This meeting of methodological exchanges organized by the Laboratoire méditerranéen de Préhistoire Europe Afrique, the Laboratoire d'Anthropologie bio-culturelle, Droit, Éthique et Santé and the Institut national de recherches archéologiques préventives in Aix-en-Provence (France) at the Maison méditerranéenne des sciences de l'homme (MMSH). It confirmed the integration of issues related to the acquisition and processing of field data by the community, the appropriation of tools and the development of expertise.
