My activity

The main objective of my work, carried out in the framework of preventive archaeology (INRAP) is to understand how human populations interacted with nature through time, particularly concerning plants, how they exploited available resources and how they changed their environment. This work is based on the analysis of plant remains (wood-charcoal, fruit and seeds) preserved in archaeological sites located in southern France (Neolithic – Modern period).
