The scientific approach

The technological approach was developed in France and Europe 30 years ago, particularly under the impetus of the laboratory UMR 7055 through its research, publications and training activities. Our unit continues to play a role in the first methodological and theoretical reflection, both by “actualistic” data bases (experimental and ethnoarchaeological) by expanding its technological expertise to various materials (lithic, ceramic, hard materials originated from animals, as well as metal) and theoretical frameworks to deal with changes observed during prehistory.

Indeed, connecting researchers specialized in the most ancient prehistory from -2.5 MA in Africa- to the most recent, the Iron Age in Europe is another strength of our unit. This grouping allows a comparative approach to the methods of organization and evolution.
