Il est une forme d'archéologie qui s'intéresse non pas aux témoignages matériels laissés par les civilisations passées, mais à un objet bien modeste en apparence, la terre et l'eau. Cette archéologie nouvelle puisqu'elle est née il y a à peine plus de 20 ans, est la géoarchéologie. En concertation étroite avec les archéologues plus classiques, des chercheurs spécialisés dans les sciences de la terre et l'environnement - géomorphologues, palynologues, anthracologues (spécialistes des charbons de bois), limnologues (spécialistes des lacs) etc. - fouillent les archives du sol pour restituer les milieux de vie des sociétés du passé. En effet, il est aujourd'hui difficile de concevoir une archéologie qui fasse abstraction des lieux et de leur évolution au fil des siècles, des ressources disponibles et des contraintes subies par les populations. Discipline vivante, l'archéologie s'enrichit sans cesse de nouveaux éclairages. Ce volume rassemble les contributions de spécialistes de la France du Sud-Est réunis pour la première fois à l'initiative du Service Régional de l'Archéologie de Lyon. Il fait le point sur les recherches réalisées depuis 15 ans dans la région Rhône-Alpes, montre la richesse des acquis dans le domaine de la géoarchéologie et ouvre des perspectives pour le futur

Dynamique et histoire des dépôts du Pleistocène inférieur et moyen ancien du dôme de Sangiran (Java central, Indonésie) : caractérisation des surfaces d'occupation à Homo erectus by Boris Brasseur( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The thick quaternary sedimentary series of Sangiran dome (Java) are among the richest hominid-bearing layers in the world. The oldest human fossils are dated to 1.5 million years BP, but most of them are found in the fluviovolcanic layers dating between 1 to 0.7 m.y. BP. On this wide open air site, the Ngebung 2 hill delivered the only preserved archaeological assemblage: a human occupation surface dating to 0.8 m.y. BP. This geological study of Sangiran is focused on the study of the composition, accumulation and post-depositional process of sedimentary series, with particular interest for the archaeological and paleontological layers. The micromorphological study has been essential in our analytical approach, completing the fieldwork. This work allowed the characterization of the most ancient true terrestrial levels which may encountered the first human immigrants in this area. We also highlighted several pedoclimatic ambiances and pedo-sedimentary cycles informative about the reconstruction of paleotopography, paleoenvironments, and for the important influence of Asiatic monsoon on those deposits. The characterization of the nature of sediments and of their sources, permitted us to propose the reconstruction of the rivers pathways and the development, about 1 m.y. BP of an alluvial fan coming from north and linked to an active tectonic phase. We also point out the frequent weathering and reworking of the volcanic tuffaceous material which could explain the wide dispersion of radiochronological datations in hominid bearing series. Several mudflows had covered rapidly the Homo erectus occupation surface of Ngebung 2 site, which explain the excellent preservation of the archaeological material from this site but also from other fossiliferous layers in the fluvio-volcanic series of Sangiran

Pleistocene Involutions and Patterned Ground in France: Examples and Analysis Using a GIS Database( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: A georeferenced database is used to analyse the distribution of Quaternary soft-sediment deformation structures across France. They include features visible in aerial photographs (soil stripes and cells) and features described in cross-section (involutions). Overall, there is no clear relation between the distribution of features and the locations of known faults and earthquakes in available databases. In contrast, the distribution agrees with that of Pleistocene periglacial structures. Most of the soil stripes and cells are located north of 47.5°N, i.e. in the zone of ice-wedge pseudomorphs, and can be interpreted as deformation structures of an active layer in permafrost terrain. The height of the involutions is influenced by the nature of the filling, the substrate and latitude. Deformation structures are larger in coarse material, reflecting the role of drainage and thermal conductivity. Their height increases northward to ca. 2 m at 48°N. This is thought to reflect the increase in thickness of the layer subjected to freeze-thaw cycles. Bowl-shaped structures separated by coarse pillars, which correspond to soil stripes seen in section, have formed on slopes in settings unfavourable to the generation of high pore-water pressure. Their genesis is probably related to differential frost heave. Ball-and-pillow structures and diapirs are common in flat and poorly drained terrain, and formed by liquefaction and sometimes fluidisation in a periglacial setting.
