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°28 : Chasses

The management of the different products of hunting is mainly extrapolated from bone deposits: modes of acquisition, subsistence, distribution ... All questionings elaborated from models derived from ethnological and naturalist observation, starting from one obvious fact - one goes hunting to satisfy needs - and leading to doubt: yes, but which ones?
