Bioarchéologie : synthèse et perspectives

Abstract : 31 papers and 11 posters presented during the two days of the seminar « Bioarchaeology: Methodological Minimums, Common Frame of Reference, and New Approaches » clarified the contributions of different disciplines to the analysis and characterization of archaeological sites, while raising the central question of the place currently reserved for bioarchaeology. It is under the sign of richness, variety and complementarity that this subject of the inscription of bioarchaeology in the archaeological approach was debated, through passionate and almost always heated exchanges. Logically enough, the discussions focused mainly on the problems linked to the field of preventive archaeology, without totally overshadowing that of programmed archaeology. The latter, characterized by the targeting of non-threatened sites selected for their high scientific stakes, by a strong operational segmentation and by often modest budgetary allocations, would have justified a more thorough evaluation of the place it devotes to bioarchaeology. If, therefore, it is regrettable that the format of this seminar did not allow for a more complete panorama, many of the observations made for preventive archaeology seem to be generalizable.
