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° 38 : <i>Terres inhospitalières</i>

Some environments are believed to have been colonized, or not, by human societies throughout history. Depending on the period, on environmental conditions and types of societies, these environments may be coastal strips, mountains, swampy areas ... These areas are sometimes more densely inhabited and busy than expected.
