The European Archaeology Days introduce you to archaeology and its many disciplines to raise awareness about archaeological heritage preservation. This is the perfect opportunity to come and chat with the Inrap archaeologists and the museum’s team during unique visits and activities.
Workshop-Demonstration : Building archaeology
In partnership with Inrap (French National Institute for Preventive Archaeological Research)
Buildings, much like artefacts retrieved during excavations, are another major tangible legacy of humans, constituting their living environment. The archaeological study of these remains (walls, frameworks, windows, painted plaster, graffiti, etc.) facilitates the interpretation of the evolution of lifestyles, construction techniques and architectural styles in relation to social developments. Building analysis, which bears witness to the past, is an integral part of the field of archaeology and an essential part of preventive research.
