Contribution de la paléogénétique à l’archéologie

Abstract : Paleogenetics, i.e., the analysis of DNA preserved in ancient biological remains, mainly bones and teeth, has opened up new perspectives to archaeology and thus became a major ally. Providing information that is not accessible through other approaches it contributes to a better understanding of archaeological sites and past societies, concerning for instance migrations and admixture, animal and plant domestication and the effects of human action on populations of wild animal and plants. Here, I present a short introduction into genetics and the specificities of paleogenetics, as well as a protocol for sampling of bones geared towards a paleogenetic analysis. Then, I give an overview over the achievements of paleogenetics that enrich archaeological knowledge, in particular if the dialog between archaeologists and geneticists is rich and intense.
