The use of Burgundy stone from ancient times to the present day

Abstract : Burgundy stone is widely reputed for its quality and diversity. Because it is suitable for the various requirements of construction and sculpture, it has been used continuously since ancient times. Inventories drawn up so far by researchers have been piecemeal. A new comprehensive inventory has now been undertaken with a view to renewing the involvement of various academic disciplines (archaeology and history of architecture, socio-economic history and history of art). A partnership has been formed among various laboratories at the University of Burgundy in order to ensure the validity of archaeological and historical data, develop an open platform in the form of a Wiki collaborative space and design a GIS with which to analyse the diffusion of Burgundy stone since the beginning of our era.
