L’archéozoologie dans la chaîne opératoire de l’archéologie préventive en France : du diagnostic au rendu de rapport de fouille

Abstract : Being part, to varying degrees, of the entire operational chain of preventive archaeology, the life sciences and, more specifically, archaeozoology, fully contribute to understanding of sites and past human activities. Nevertheless, despite the constantly renewed demonstration of contributions of this discipline, the daily practice of archaeozoology in preventive archaeology is today frequently subject to a restriction of financial means as well as of the fields of study, leading to a substantial modification of the content of works. These recent changes affect many archaeozoologists working in the field of preventive archaeology, whether they are attached to public or private operators. In view of the recurrence of these difficulties, denounced by most specialists, it is necessary to examine their origins in order to try to remedy them. A detailed examination of the integration of archaeozoology into the practice of preventive archaeology, from the prescription to the final evaluation of the work, in Île-de-France region, will make it possible to draw up observations, but also to initiate a reflection aimed at proposing path for improvement involving all actors in preventive archaeology (regional archaeological services, operators, territorial commissions for archaeological research). Finally, in view of the recent development of new methodological and collaborative tools, we will examine the emerging dichotomy between preventive archaeozoology, as it is currently practised in France by public or private operators, and the research carried out by other institutions (CNRS, MNHN, universities). This reflection seems essential in order to preserve the link between case studies and research, but also to maintain the cohesion of the community, as archaeozoologists today work mainly in the field of preventive archaeozoology.
