The management of agrarian areas from Protohistory to modern times: modeling time-space dynamics from archaeological sources, written and environmental data


The proposed research project focuses on the study of spatial and temporal dynamics of agrarian spaces in the long term (From Protohistory to the 19th century), mainly from the analysis of ceramic material collected "off-site" during Fieldwalking operations, coupled with various other sources (written, planimetric, ethno-archaeological, environmental). This project aims to develop research on management of agrarian space carried out during my thesis (defended December 14, 2007) and the work done under the Archaedyn program of the French ACI Spaces and Territories (2005 -2007) promoted by the French Ministry of Research on the same theme. Within these projects, contacts were made with the Institute of Anthropological and Space Studies in Ljubljana (ZRC ZASU), allowing a fruitful collaboration on this topic, which can contribute to enrich Franco-Slovenian research programs (Proteus, ModelTER). These experiences have helped to propose a protocol of restitution and modeling of spatial and temporal dynamics of agrarian spaces. Research programs have already helped the modeling of major trends affecting the agro-pastoral practices in the long term by comparing changes legible within several micro-regions considered as observation windows. The post-doctoral fellowship at Ljubljana's ZRC SAZU goals, building on these achievements, to develop and enrich this protocol analysis while extending a confrontation to information from various documentary sources (archaeological, textual or environmental), and using the host laboratory skills in the fields of GIS, remote sensing, and Lidar processing. The course will also provide an opportunity for exchanges on methods (for fieldwalking) with colleagues from Slovenia.
