Working with ArkeoTopia

We work regularly with members and organizations related to archaeological research. In particular, we maintain close collaboration with the Department of Natural History for Prehistoric Man (UMR 7194) at the Musée de l'Homme in Paris, and Team 4 of the Archaeology and Archaeometry laboratory (UMR 5138 - french only) in Lyon.

Our research activities and programs depend on our members and the relationships established. This is why we are currently working on:

Mission Aventure - la prospection pédestre
Programma WikiTopia Archives, en savoir plus sur les débuts de l'archéologie
  • the Adventure Project - underwater and land prospection for the shipwreck of the Adventure in New Caledonia (19th century)
  • the WikiTopia Archives program - digitization and analysis of letters from 19th century scholars in order to further knowledge of early work on Celtic and Gallo-Roman archaeology (19th century)
  • a program of land prospection in the Yvelines – a micro-territorial approach to the development of Gallo-Roman agricultural areas (1st century BC)
  • participation in epistemological studies in archaeology

Defending archaeological research

Défendre la recherche archéologiqueDefending scientific research in archaeology means contributing to a better protection of our heritage, to a healthy and lasting relationship between the various actors of research (professionals, volunteers, citizens, politicians), and to improved knowledge and practices specific to archaeological research. This is why ArkeoTopia has already intervened twice with Afnor for the French norm X50-553 on "Management of research activities" and for the European norm CEN / TC 346 on the "Conservation of cultural property”
