To base itself on archaeology in order to rethink our ways of living together in one environment: Such is the editorial line of Archéopages, a scientific journal with a review panel. Each issue develops a specific theme by crossing the points of view of archaeologists of all backgrounds and those of other researchers in human sciences, thus taking stock of the recent contributions of archaeology to the knowledge of societies. A large space is also devoted to modern methods of archaeology. The journal is aimed at researchers, students and enlightened amateurs.

Archéopages n°26 : Pêches

A poor relative of mammals, the fish only had for himself that he was particularly prolific. As a result, he is abundantly fished and eaten. The concerns of archaeo-ichthyologists relate to the more general ones of today: change of biodiversity, exploitation of the species, impact of man on natural resources.
