La dendrochronologie : potentialités et nouveaux enjeux pour l’archéologie

Abstract : Dendrochronology, a dating method that studies the variation in the tree-rings width, is usually used in archaeology to obtain an absolute dating. Dialogue and data sharing between different actors of the discipline are necessary in order to make the results reliable. However, archaeological woods analyses is not limited to dating and new approaches are emerging, allowing new fields of research and filling spaces and chronologies gaps. In this context, dendrochronology contributes to a better understanding of silvicultural practices and state of forests, but also to their location in areas with few or no human presence. Tree selection, forest exploitations and their evolution over time, as well as the provenance of woods, are as much information that can be put into perspective between an archaeological site and its environment. More specifically, the aim of this article is to present these new dendrochronological approaches and their issues in the framework of archaeology.
