La bioarchéologie en France : état des lieux, enjeux et perspectives

Abstract : Bioarchaeology is the study of biological remains collected during archaeological excavations such as plant and animal remains, but also their physicochemical and genetic components and traces of organic substances (milk, fats, waxes, etc.). It brings together a very wide range of approaches and disciplines: archaeozoology, archaeobotany, chemical, isotopic or molecular analyses, carried out on very diverse scales and cross-considered. Its recent evolution is marked by a major renewal of tools and techniques as well as methods. Thus, bioarchaeological data can be integrated into major anthropological issues: reconstitution of past environments and biodiversity, restitution of agricultural and pastoral practices and understanding of the relationships between societies and their environment.
