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° 41 : La place du cheval

Honoured, mythified, but also hunted, eaten and exploited, has the horse really benefited from a privileged status among domestic animals? What morphological evolutions have dictated its various exploitations? What types of remains reveal the value - and by whom - of this animal?
