L’archéologie subaquatique au chevet de l’archéologie du bâti

Abstract : Since 2012, Inrap has had an underwater archaeological research unit to meet the requirements of the Ministry of Culture. If these have mainly concerned maritime areas, in recent years, the prescriptions concerning inland waters are more and more numerous. They concern lakes, rivers and streams. In recent years, Inrap has carried out diagnostic operations in various rivers in France, and the interventions concerned the development of built structures linked to water conservation. From a poster we wish to take as an example operations realized in the Charente in 2020 (commune of Jarnac, and Saint Simon). These operations concern quays as well as a mill both dating from the medieval period. More recently, in the Sélune (Manche), built fisheries and a crossing structure have been studied. The methods of underwater investigation allow us to inform the different phases and modes of construction of these flooded structures. Some materials used, including wood, are particularly well preserved underwater. There is a perfect complementarity and continuity between surface archaeology and underwater archaeology. This last one allows to apprehend the foundations which remain, without the intervention of archaeologists specialized in hyperbaric environment, inaccessible.
