Abstract:
With Experiments Past the important role that experimental archaeology has played in the development of archaeology is finally uncovered and understood. Experimental archaeology is a method to attempt to replicate archaeological artefacts and/or processes to test certain hypotheses or discover information about those artefacts and/or processes. It has been a key part of archaeology for well over a century, but such experiments are often embedded in wider research, conducted in isolation or never published or reported.

Experiments Past provides readers with a glimpse of experimental work and experience that was previously inaccessible due to language, geographic and documentation barriers, while establishing a historical context for the issues confronting experimental archaeology today. This volume contains formal papers on the history of experimental methodologies in archaeology, as well as personal experiences of the development of experimental archaeology from early leaders in the field, such as Hans-Ole Hansen. Also represented in these chapters are the histories of experimental approaches to taphonomy, the archaeology of boats, building structures and agricultural practices, as well as narratives on how experimental archaeology has developed on a national level in several European countries and its role in encouraging a wide-scale interest and engagement with the past.

Dans ce volume, vous pourrez notamment y lire un article co-écrit par Guillaume Reich (président de Cerda, doctorant en archéologie, médiateur culturel) et par Damien Linder (ex-membre de Cerda, étudiant en archéologie) sur l'histoire de l'archéologie expérimentale en France.

 

Délais de rédaction extrêmement réduits - nous avons été prévenus au dernier moment... avec donc seulement quelques semaines - mais nous avons tout de même pu en profiter pour faire un peu de publicité pour différents projets français : Parc archéologique de Samara, Parc archéologique européen de Bliesbruck-Reinheim, Musée des Temps Barbares de Marle, Village de l'An Mil à Melrand, Parc Archéologique Asnapio, Porte du Rebout à Bibracte, Village gaulois de Saint-Julien-sur-Garonne, Parc archéologique de Beynac, Expéridrome de Niederbronn-lès-Bains, Guédelon, Muséoparc d'Alésia, Village gaulois de COriobona (Gaulois d'Esse), four gallo-romain de la Legio VIII Augusta à Autun, chaland des Ambiani, Archéosite de Montcornet, Archéosite d'Ardèche (Randa Ardesca), etc.

 

Nous avons également fait mention des travaux de certains collègues et amis reconstituteurs, de Franck Mathieu à la Legio VIII Augusta en passant par ceux de Fabrice Cognot, d'Eric Teyssier et de Brice Lopez ou des Arts Martiaux Historiques Européens en général.

 

Un document qui, s'il n'a évidemment pas la prétention d'être complet, garde le mérite d'être une synthèse sur la question, en France, depuis les débuts de l'archéologie expérimentale.

 

Bonne lecture !
