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.

Edited by Inrap

As a tribute to Jean-Paul Demoule, President of Inrap from 2002 to 2008, this issue brings together a series of contributions on the history of archaeology, reflections on the organization of the discipline and articles highlighting specific contributions of preventive archaeology to the knowledge of the past.
