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° 40 : <i>Villages</i>

Along with historical and geographic definitions, archaeology poses for all periods the question of how do societies choose to group or not their habitats. What is a village? How does it shape itself, evolve or disappear? What are its constitutive elements and how do they overlap (vocation, exchange, structuration of space, type of buildings ...)? Of what whole is the village a component?
