Apport et place de la xylologie en archéologie préventive

Abstract : Archaeo-xylology is the study of archaeological woods, mainly found in wetlands. These waterlogged woods unearthed during archaeological excavations often retain their original shape and appearance. As a natural material used by men of all eras, it gives a glimpse of past environments through its ecological characteristics (growth rings, plant morphology) and documents certain anthropic practices (harvesting, shaping, use). However, remains are rare and only a tiny part of them have come down to us because of the special conditions necessary for their conservation and the chance of their discovery.
