My activity

My PhD in archaeobotany focuses on Corsican sites of the Bronze Age and the Iron age (between 2200 and 200 BCE). This work aims, using anthracological and eco-anatomical approaches, to restore paleoenvironment and to understand the impact of human activities on the physiognomy and the dynamics of vegetation. In addition, the study of charred seeds and fruits will allow to discuss the evolution of agro-pastoral practices during the Bronze Age and the Iron Age and the management of plant resources, cultivated or wild, especially wild fruit trees that could constitute significant food resources and whose exploitation strategies may have changed over time.  Studied sites are located in two valleys in the southwest of Corsica (Gravona and Taravu), and in various other different geographical areas (mountain/plain) in order to study and compare various biogeographic and cultural contexts.
