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 33 : Grands Travaux

The will to start with a clean slate, the need to limit the overflows of private constructions, the ambition to extend its hold, to regulate the peripheries, to enjoy a new aesthetic order, to control flows and activities, the desire to change its image… The motivations of the public authorities in the launching of major works are both blurry and overlapping. A strong political and economic commitment is the only constant in these great upheavals of urban space, which contribute to the definition of a “city” to the point of transforming it into a metaphor.
