Dynamiques morpho-sédimentaires et peuplement sur le Rocher de Roquebrune-sur-Argens (Var)

Abstract : The preroman and roman settlements of the Roquebrune rocky hill are well know and give the possibility to be confronted to the geomorphic observations, in the aim to understand the story of the erosion at the scale of this little montain, and, later, the feeding of the deltaic progradation of the Argens river. Helped by the geo-archeological program Eclipse, the geomorphic study of two small valleys describes two different detritic pulses : the first, during the Iron Age, is contemporary of numerous observations of the same type in southern France ; the second, corresponding to the Little Ice Age climatic phase, is not as important as usual. The results show the complexity of the interactions between climatic and anthropic processes : the type of settlement pattern certainly plays a role, as well as agricultural modes, although these are more difficult to perceive with the sole archeological remains.
