Archéogéographie et diagnostic archéologique : l'expérience de l'A83 dans le Sud-Vendée, « un retour vers le futur »

Abstract : This article looks back at methods used to implement diagnostics carried out in the 1990s prior to the construction of the A83 motorway and the integration of these data into an archaeogeographic survey conducted ten years later as part of a PhD thesis. The aim is to explain what the preventive archaeological data has brought to the archaeogeographic analysis and, inversely, what they has brought, retrospectively and since 2009 (date of the defence), to the assessments and preventive excavations carried out in the south Vendean plain. This linkage poses several problems, all of which have an impact on the use and understanding of archaeological or archaeogeographical data. These discrepancies and difficulties make it possible to see the limits of this intellectual collaboration when the archaeogeographic analysis is not carried out upstream of the excavations and, by extension, to plead for new procedures. Indeed, beyond this particular case, the aim of this article is to point out various problems which limit the integration of archaeogeographic study to diagnostics and the valorisation of their results, but also to propose solutions to remedy them.
