“The Archaeo Moment

a series of lectures for the general public.

At the crossroads of the human sciences, earth sciences and natural sciences, archaeology has evolved considerably in recent years in its questioning, its methods of approach, its types of analysis and reflection. Numerous specialities have emerged and correspond to as many different professions, necessary to answer the ever more numerous and complex questions that researchers try to answer in their daily practice. The aim of this series of conferences is to inform a wide audience about the “making” of archaeology, in all its facets, at the beginning of the 21st century. The aim is to highlight the issues, methods and progress of contemporary archaeology, based on the presentation by specialists of their current research.
