Archéobios : Archives biologiques et biomatériaux en contexte archéologique

Abstract : Archéobios thematic school (I. Théry-Parisot and L. Gourichon, CEPAM-UMR 7264) was conceived as a link between archaeologists and specialists, who are often absent in the field. Biological remains are archaeological archives with a strong informative potential whose traces are sometimes tenuous and fragile. Their study meets the requirements of sampling, removal and conservation specific to each material and to precise problems. Although the actions taken during excavations are a determining factor in their analysis, the logistical contingencies imposed on those in charge of operations, particularly in preventive archaeology, can sometimes be detrimental to the potential of the studies. The emphasis of this school has been placed on raising archaeologists’ awareness of the scientific issues raised by the study of biological archives; acquiring technical and theoretical skills in sampling, removal and enhancement of remains; raising specialists’ awareness of the difficulties in the field; and creating a network to facilitate future exchanges. The remarks and suggestions made by the participants at the end of the course enabled readjustments to be made for the following session in order to be as close as possible to the expectations of the trainees.
