|NEMO: Neanderthal Man facing death: funeral cultures/practices|
The NEMO project aims to understand the relation between the technical and economic traditions and the human remains during the Middle Palaeolithic period. The objective is to establish a new record of knowledge of the societies of the Middle Palaeolithic period in Western Europe, where human remains will not be considered as elements detached from their archaeological context.
|Saint-Martin-de-Bruch has not yet yielded all its secrets...|
This year again, and for the third consecutive year, the excavation site at Saint-Martin-de-Bruch in Lot-et-Garonne has revealed many surprises. This site, known since the 1960s, confirmed by INRAP in 2005, has only really been investigated in the last three years (excavations programmed from 2011 to 2013). It was first occupied in ancient times by a Gallo-Roman villa, reused from the 6th century to house a Merovingian necropolis, and may have been used up to the Carolingian era (10th century).
|Gascon Rolls online|
The “Gascon Rolls online” project is a vast programme of publishing the Gascon Rolls and putting them online. They are an exceptional documentary source from the English Chancery Court, preserved in the National Archives (London). This documentary source is vital for the knowledge of the Middle Ages in Aquitaine, and especially for the understanding of the dynamics of territorialisation in Aquitaine during the Hundred Years War.
